Coyotes Prospects

It was less than three years ago when Dylan Strome was selected by the Arizona Coyotes with the third-overall choice in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. However, in that short period of time, Strome's perception as a player has seemingly transitioned from that of a top prospect to, rather, a long-term project. And, following a handful of unsuccessful stints at the NHL-level with the Coyotes, many would be quick to conclude that Strome's newfound distinction is justifiable. In fact, Strome managed just one point in seven games last season and has notched just one point in another 11 contests this campaign. Yet, despite these underwhelming offensive totals, there are two crucial tidbits regarding Strome which are important to keep in mind. First of all, Strome is just 20 years-of-age. Secondly, Strome currently finds himself in the midst of his first full season of professional hockey, meaning the youngster has a wealth of information to discern and experience to gain against...

Long Read

Don't look now, but with points in six of their last seven games, the Arizona Coyotes are one of the hottest teams in the Western Conference. Four Points for Coyotes The Coyotes entered last week fresh off of a disappointing 6-5 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 13, and began their slate of three games against those same Sharks, this time at Gila River Arena in Glendale. It looked like the Sharks were on their way to an easy victory, but the Coyotes came roaring back from an early 2-0 deficit and tied the game in the third period to send the game to overtime. Despite a 4-on-3 power play chance in the extra frame, the Coyotes were unable to score, and the game moved to a shootout, where Joe Pavelski scored the only goal to give San Jose a 3-2 victory. After their one-game "homestand" against the Sharks, the Coyotes hit the road once again and began a short two-game road trip against the Nashville Predators. The Coyotes nearly earned a regulation win in this one, but...

Although they showed signs of improvement two weeks ago, the Arizona Coyotes took a few steps backward during their two games last week - let's dive right into what was a disastrous week of blown leads in the Valley of the Sun. Two Blown Leads for Coyotes After enjoying their bye week, the Coyotes got back to work on Friday night, when they hosted Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers at Gila River Arena. The well-rested 'Yotes jumped all over Edmonton early, as they chased starter Cam Talbot with two goals in the game's first 3:17. However, the Oilers came back to score two goals of their own later in the first period, and Darnell Nurse gave Edmonton their first lead early in the third period. Nurse's tally, his second of the night, was the eventual game-winner, as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored a late empty-netter to give the Oilers a 4-2 victory - their first in regulation since Dec. 23. The Coyotes then had a short turnaround before their next game, as they hopped on a...

The Chicago Blackhawks have traded forwards Richard Panik and Laurent Dauphin to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Anthony Duclair and defenseman Adam Clendening. The deal was announced Wednesday night and according to Pierre LeBrun, was in the works for about 7-10 days before finally coming to fruition. https://twitter.com/NHLBlackhawks/status/951235619145109507 The Blackhawks had interest in acquiring Duclair as early as last season due to his speed and upside that hasn't yet been tapped into by a Coyotes team despite the 22-year-old forward scoring 20 goals in his first season in Arizona. Duclair also scored 24 assists that season in 81 games, good for 44 points on the year. Unfortunately, Duclair has only scored 14 goals and 30 points in his next two seasons combined, playing in 91 games between the 2016-17 and 2017-18 season. The Pointe-Claire, Quebec-native certainly has the upside to be regular NHL player and he'll get a chance to do that on a Chicago...
