The Phoenix Coyotes, whose ownership is still the subject of bankruptcy proceedings, have sold out their home opener Saturday night against Columbus.

The Phoenix Coyotes have sold out their home opener Saturday night against Columbus.

The sellout is due largely to lowering all upper-bowl ticket prices to $15 US.

The Coyotes, whose ownership is still the subject of bankruptcy proceedings, have made the event a "Welcome Back Whiteout" promotion. Everyone in attendance at the 18,000-seat Jobing.com Arena will receive white T-shirts and pompoms.

A few hundred standing room-only tickets remained on Friday.
