The Coyotes wore the above jerseys from 1996, when they relocated to Arizona from Winnipeg, until 2003.

From a 1996 Associated Press article, the logo on the jersey was described as an “upright coyote wearing an extra-long mask styled to resemble a menacing Hopi kachina figure from northern Arizona.”
