The Coyotes may live and die by the young swords this season, with Brandon Gormley and Connor Murphy both expected to crack the top six defensive pairings, as well as guys like Lucas Lessio and Max Domi also possessing good chances to make the team.

Dubnyk came away from the 2012-2013 season with career highs and a promising outlook—he had a 2.57 goals against average as well as a .921 save percentage. However, Dubnyk’s last season with the Edmonton Oilers makes the Coyotes’ choice a little more uncertain. His season with...

Phoenix Coyotes: Five free agents to target

Aside from the draft, the NHL free agency is the best way to build a team.
