The Phoenix Coyotes may have a new owner, according to several media reports.

FOX 10 News in Phoenix, the Fourth Period Magazine and the Phoenix Business Journal report that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is in Glendale, Ariz., to announce a tentative agreement has been struck.

Bettman is expected to make the announcement before Monday's Game 5 of the Coyotes-Nashville Predators playoff series.

The reports say the likely new ownership group is led by Greg Jamison, the former chief executive officer of the San Jose Sharks.

Jamison is still a minority owner of the Sharks.

The NHL has owned the Coyotes since 2009.
