The Arizona Coyotes' new owner made it clear Thursday he'll do his best to ensure the club doesn't relocate.
"I am committed to stay(ing) here," Alex Meruelo told reporters at his introductory press conference. "I will do everything I can in my heart, and in my hard work, to make sure that we can make it viable."
Meruelo, who assumed majority ownership of the team Monday, also expressed his desire to build a championship winner.
"I will not stop, I will not stop until we bring a Stanley Cup to the Valley," the billionaire businessman said.
As if that wasn't enough, Meruelo had an emphatic message for Coyotes fans.
