Coyotes skate into 2nd year of ownership

(www.nhl.com) One year ago, the  Arizona Coyotes ended a painfully long saga without stable ownership.  The league  took control of the franchise after  the last owners went  bankrupt  in 2009.  After three years of being run by the NHL, the Coyotes  were nearing relocation, (possibly to Seattle), had a deal with the city of Glendale for a new lease  agreement and new ownership...

Draft will impact Coyotes down road; trades could impact them now

With less than five days remaining until NHL free agency begins, the Coyotes have only re-signed one of their key free agents: defenseman Chris Summers.  That's not a surprise since the team never intended to bring back defenseman Derek Morris, goalie Thomas Greiss wants to test the waters to see if he can land a starting gig, and the team will look to upgrade on veteran forwards...

UFA: Derek Morris

This week’s UFA is Derek Morris, or DMo as fans usually call him. DMo at Summer Camp I can say with almost 100% certainty that DMo will not be back next season. With the slew of young dmen chomping at the bit to break into the NHL, DMo’s services aren’t really needed. DMo has been with the team for quite some time (off and on) and I believe his time is done. He is getting up...

Lineup changes net big win

PITTSBURGH -- Dave Tippett doesn't have many options in his lineup bag, but he still felt the need to make a change after Monday's familiar feeling loss in New York. The change may be temporary, but the message sure got through to his team for one night. Mikkel Boedker roofed a tight shot late in the second period and -- surprise -- the Coyotes held a lead to beat the Pittsburgh...

Coyotes getting back to defensive identity

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes are far from a polished product as they enter the final 12 games of the NHL's regular season. That was apparent in Phoenix's inability to put away the Florida Panthers on Friday due to failed scoring chances. But at least the Coyotes got the win -- their third straight -- and at least they look more like the Coyotes of old.  That identity starts with...

Crunch time for Coyotes: 5 things to watch

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes held their final practice on Wednesday before their season resumes. The five Olympians were in attendance, defenseman Derek Morris looks close to returning to the lineup, and the team has had ample time to talk about and implement the strategies, structure and style it would like to employ over the season's final 24 games.  "We've had a few real...

Coyotes try to end weary Canadiens' series domination

Mired in something of a mini-slump, the Montreal Canadiens could use a game against a franchise they have thoroughly dominated for more than 20 years.
