It was another solid week for the Arizona Coyotes - they picked up two more victories and improved to 8-2-1 over their last 11 games and 11-7-5 (a 96-point pace over an 82-game season) since the calendar flipped to 2018. Coyotes End Homestand on High Note The Coyotes, after being off from game action for three days, got back on the ice on Thursday last week when they welcomed the Minnesota Wild to town. Arizona fell behind early on Zach Parise's first-period goal, but they tied the game at one apiece when Jakob Chychrun scored on the power play during the second frame. In the third, the Coyotes erupted - Christian Dvorak, Richard Panik, Kevin Connauton, and Jordan Martinook all scored to lead their squad to a 5-3 victory and their second damaging win against the Wild in less than a month. On Saturday, the Coyotes welcomed Erik Karlsson and the Ottawa Senators to town in the final contest of a seven-game homestand. As they did on Thursday, the 'Yotes responded after allowing...

Toronto Maple Leafs

Five trades over a span of the last 12 years and that’s the extent to which the Toronto Maple Leafs have had dealings with the Arizona Coyotes’ franchise. While they haven’t made a move in the past year and a half, the two teams did engage in five trades over the past 10 years. That said, here’s a look at the most recent deals between the two clubs. Hailing Holland While Peter Holland did play 174 games for the Maple Leafs during the regular season, he wasn’t a constant for the team. That’s why he reportedly became unhappy with the club which led to the Leafs trading the forward to the Coyotes. The Leafs received a 2018 conditional sixth-round pick in return for Holland on Dec. 9, 2016. The condition was that the Leafs would receive a sixth-rounder if the Coyotes were able to sign or trade Holland who was a pending restricted free agent at the time. Neither condition was met and the Leafs won’t receive a pick from the Coyotes in the upcoming...

After their four-game winning streak from Feb. 12 to Feb. 17, the Arizona Coyotes, perhaps hindered by a break from game action in the middle of their schedule, dropped two of three at home last week and once again were unable to move out of the NHL's basement. Coyotes Struggle on Home Ice The 'Yotes enjoyed a four-day scheduled break following their 1-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 17, and returned to action against the Oilers' Alberta rivals, the Calgary Flames, on Thursday night in Glendale. Things were looking good early, as Derek Stepan gave the 'Yotes the lead just 57 seconds in. However, a big hit by Zac Rinaldo on Matt Stajan appeared to re-energize the Flames - they scored the next five goals in the game en route to a 5-2 victory. After Thursday's disappointing performance, the Coyotes got back to work against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night at Gila River Arena. Early on, it became clear that Arizona had shaken off of the rust that was present in their...

Coyotes Prospects

With no chance at qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Arizona Coyotes need to do the right thing for their future - they need to send second-year players Brendan Perlini, Christian Dvorak, Jakob Chychrun, and Christian Fischer to the Tucson Roadrunners of the AHL before the trade deadline. Only temporarily, that is. The NHL trade deadline will pass at 3:00 P.M. ET on Monday, Feb. 26, and with it, so will the opportunity to make NHL players available for the AHL playoffs. According to AHL rules, a player must be on an AHL roster when the NHL trade deadline passes in order for them to be eligible to play in the Calder Cup playoffs. Following the deadline, each NHL team is allowed four non-emergency recalls from the AHL, meaning that they can immediately recall any four players sent to the AHL after the deadline passes. For example, if the Coyotes assign a few players to the AHL following their game against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night, all would be...
