Hanzal's torrid start continues in Coyotes' win

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Whenever Coyotes coach Dave Tippett talks about Martin Hanzal, he notes just how many ways his big center impacts the game. But when you think of Hanzal, you dont think point-a-game guy. At least you didn't until now. Hanzal matched a career high with four points in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Lightning, scoring a goal and adding three assists while continuing...

Hanzal to sit two games for charging

Phoenix Coyotes center Martin Hanzal has been suspended two games by the NHL for charging Edmonton defenseman Jeff Petry. Hanzal was called for a charging penalty when he ran Petry into the boards from behind in the first period of Phoenix's 5-4 win over the Oilers on Saturday.

Matt Henderson: NHL Suspends Hanzal, Gets It All Wrong

Martin Hanzal gets two games for effectively launching himself into the face of Edmonton’s best defender. The same Hanzal was allowed to stay in the game after the play and, in fact, scored a goal in the Coyotes’ win over the Oilers. After reviewing Shanahan’s video describing the play and the resulting suspension I can’t help but wonder what on Earth the NHL...

Hanzal comes up big in Coyotes' big win

GLENDALE, Ariz. Martin Hanzal should hire a new agent. The current one never negotiated a contract incentive for shooting percentage. I wish, Hanzal said, laughing. In 11 games, Hanzal has seven goals on 26 shots for a gaudy 26.9 percent conversion rate. That rate took a spike on Saturday when he buried two of his four chances, including the game-winner on a power play midway...

Brown reacts to Hanzal's suspension

It's all a guessing game this time during the playoffs -- at least when it comes to supplementary discipline, and in particular, the case of the Coyotes' Martin Hanzal, who received a one-game suspension for his hit on the Kings' Dustin Brown in Game 2. Game 3 is tonight in Los Angeles. "I know these playoff games are probably worth more," Brown said after...

Hanzal comes up big for resilient Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Martin Hanzal fills a lot of roles. Hes the Coyotes' shutdown center against opponents' top talent. Hes an adept face-off man. He creates space for skilled wings Radim Vrbata and Ray Whitney. Hes even a proud and attentive new father, as anyone who attended the Coyotes win over the Blue Jackets on April 3 can attest after watching him cradle 3-month-old...
