Ekman-Larsson is chasing Lidstrom's All-Star example

Oliver Ekman-Larsson idolized Detroit Red Wings defenseman and fellow countryman Nicklas Lidstrom from the time he was 5 years old. "I had posters and hockey cards," Ekman-Larsson said sheepishly. "We didn't get a lot of the NHL games on TV but I read about him all the time in the newspapers and obviously, everybody knew who he was in Sweden." As Ekman-Larsson gets set to play in...

Coyotes midseason report card: falling short of expectations

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes completed the first half of the 2014-15 regular season the way they began it: with a loss to a Canadian team that, until recently, had been considered an inferior opponent.

Coyotes regress to their mean in listless loss to Senators

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The infant stages of Saturday's game were great for the Coyotes. Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson had just been named to his first NHL All-Star Game and Mikkel Boedker was showing off his skills again as Arizona grabbed an early lead off his individual brilliance from the right wing. The rest of the game? Well, that was the problem. That's when the Coyotes regressed...

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson named NHL All-Star

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Oliver Ekman-Larsson will be the first one to admit he hasn't had the type of season he wanted. His dissatisfaction stems from that minus-12 rating he brought into Saturday's game against the Ottawa Senators at Gila River Arena.
