Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news that the Arizona Coyotes might have interest in the NHL biggest trade target, but they aren't the only team. We examine a few rumors floating out there in the rumor mill. There is a report the Montreal Canadiens are looking outside the NHL for next season's roster and the Toronto Maple Leafs are going to be without two important forwards. Coyotes Interested in Taylor Hall Darren Dreger of TSN reports that the Arizona Coyotes are “definitely interested” in the New Jersey Devils star forward Taylor Hall and are “not concerned” about the potential high asking price which could include a first-round draft pick.

As for the Coyotes, interest might...

Philadelphia Flyers

PHILADELPHIA — Phil Kessel scored two goals to lead the Arizona Coyotes to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night. Darcy Kuemper made 28 saves and Conor Garland also scored for the Coyotes, who improved to 10-3-3 on the road. Matt Niskanen scored for Philadelphia. The Flyers had won five in a row and had points in seven straight games (6-0-1). The loss was the second in regulation at home this season for Philadelphia, which dropped to 9-2-4. Kuemper, who entered leading the league averaging at 1.97 goals-against, was on the verge of his third shutout before Niskanen’s score on a long wrist shot that deflected off Garland’s knee and pulled Philadelphia within 2-1 with 4:43 left on the Flyers’ 28th shot. Darcy Kuemper, Arizona Coyotes (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Kuemper was strong throughout.

Long Read

A shootout loss, a collapse on home ice, and a solid road victory. It was an up-and-down week for the Arizona Coyotes, but a productive one nonetheless. The club earned three points in three games, and retained their hold on the No. 2 spot in the Pacific Division through 29 games. Darcy Kuemper, Arizona Coyotes (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Darcy Kuemper and Antti Raanta continued to provide exceptional goaltending, but the offense's inconsistent play was the difference between the 3-0-0 week that could have been, and the 1-1-1 week that was. If the Coyotes can find a way to get Clayton Keller, Phil Kessel, Derek Stepan, and others to produce at a higher level offensively, this is a team that has the potential to make a lot of noise in the Stanley Cup playoffs come April. Until that happens, the team will continue to play a lot of close games. With multiple teams nipping at their heels, the Coyotes need to continue winning those close games. Coyotes Week in...

Arizona Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The darkest time came right after the injury. Months in the hospital. Multiple surgeries. Pain, fear, little hope. Playing hockey again was not even a remote consideration. Carl Soderberg had bigger concerns. “I was more worried about my eye and would I get my vision back,” Soderberg said. The Arizona Coyotes made the biggest splash of the off-season, trading for highly productive right wing Phil Kessel. But the addition of Soderberg might have been Arizona's biggest move. Impact on Coyotes Roster A 6-foot-3, 210-pound centre, Soderberg has given the Coyotes a big body to go with all those fast, skilled young players. He's a willing jostler outside the crease, creating traffic in front of opposing goalies and shooting lanes for his teammates. He's the guy who goes into the corners to dig pucks out. Need a big hit, he's Arizona's guy. Colorado Avalanche goaltender Pavel Francouz makes a save on Arizona Coyotes center Carl Soderberg. (AP...
