Last night marked the end of an era as the Arizona Coyotes played their last game in the NHL. 

In a similar situation to the NY Islanders before the construction of UBS Arena, the Coyotes have struggled to find a new arena, bouncing around throughout the Phoenix area, spending the last two seasons on the campus of Arizona State in the confines of the 5,000 seat Mullett Arena.

The organization relocated from Winnipeg in 1996, spending 28 years in the desert as the Phoenix and Arizona Coyotes.

Today the league approved the franchise's sale to Utah Jazz owner, Ryan Smith, who will move the franchise north to Salt Lake City. 

Shane Doan will go down as the greatest player in the franchise's history, but there are plenty of other greats, including some who also spent parts of their careers with the Islanders.

Let’s take a look at the four best players to play for both the Coyotes and Islanders’ franchises.
