GLENDALE -- All of us within the Coyotes organization are deeply saddened by the death of our former beat writer and good friend Jim Gintonio.

Jim passed away on Sunday after a brave fight with cancer.

Jim covered our team for The Arizona Republic from 2007 until 2012, when he retired after a long and successful career in journalism.

Jim was well respected and loved by many people connected to our team and by many people he worked alongside within the Phoenix sports media community and the NHL media community.
