by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was placed on the taxi squad Saturday, per CapFriendly.

With Jonas Brodin ready to return to the lineup after his time in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, Mermis' services on the active roster are no longer required. Expect Mermis to stay with the taxi squad going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Friday.

Mermis scored his first NHL goal with the Devils last season, totaling four points over 10 games with the big club. The 26-year-old blueliner will likely spend most of next season with AHL Iowa, but he could be promoted to the top level if injuries pop up.

Devils' Dakota Mermis: Summoned to The Show
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils promoted Mermis from AHL Binghamton on Thursday.

Will Butcher is dealing with an upper-body injury, so Mermis will draw into the lineup Thursday against the Sharks. The 26-year-old American has notched 19 points in 53 AHL appearances this season.

Devils' Dakota Mermis: Secures one-year contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis and the Devils agreed to a one-year, two-way contract on Monday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The deal is worth $700,000 at the NHL level, and $200,000 at the AHL level, with the latter more likely for Mermis' future. The 25-year-old spent most of his time with AHL Tucson last season, collecting a modest 24 points in 62 games. Expect the Illinois native to spend a bulk of his time next season in the minors providing organizational depth, while in line for possible call-up opportunities should injuries occur.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Dropping back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Wednesday, Matt Layman of The Arizona Republic reports.

Mermis didn't see any action during this latest promotion and was just serving as an emergency option with Jakob Chychrun (lower body) sidelined. In 36 minor-league contests, the 25-year-old Mermis has notched 12 points, 33 PIM and a plus-5 rating. Look for the Illinois native to spend the bulk of the year with the Roadrunners.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Mermis from AHL Tucson on Tuesday.

Alex Goligoski (concussion) and Jacob Chychrun (lower body) are both currently dealing with injuries, so Mermis will round out Arizona's depth at defense until one of them is ready to return. The 25-year-old American has notched 12 points in 36 AHL appearances this season.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Heading back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was sent back down to AHL Tucson on Monday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Both Alex Goligoski (lower body) and Jakob Chychrun (upper body) have been dealing with injuries, which has required call-ups from the minors. The fact that the Coyotes are ready to return Mermis to the AHL feels like a good sign that Goligoski will be ready for Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Gets call from parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was called up from AHL Tucson on Thursday.

Mermis' call-up trailed news of an upper-body injury to Jakob Chychrun, but Alex Goligoski has been hampered by a lower-body issue for the last week, so it's conceivable that the rookie will draw into Thursday's home contest against the Predators.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Back to riding buses
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was sent down to AHL Tucson on Monday.

The 24-year-old has yet to dress for the Coyotes this season. He'll report back to AHL Tucson, where he's recorded five points in nine games in 2018-19.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Promoted to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis has been recalled from AHL Tuscon, according to the NHL's official media site.

Mermis was named captain of the AHL's Roadrunners on Monday, and the 'Yotes have boosted the 24-year-old's confidence even further with this call-up. However, the Coyotes had enough defensemen available even before Mermis' ascension to the NHL, so it remains to be seen whether he'll draw into the lineup against the Flyers on Thursday.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Re-ups for one year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis signed a one-year, two-way deal with Arizona on Tuesday.

Handed a qualifying offer before free agency, Mermis finalized a $700,000 contract (at the NHL level) for the upcoming season. In his nine NHL outings last season, the defenseman averaged a mere 10:59 of ice time while failing to secure a point. The Arizona blue line is not the deepest of units, which could open the door for Mermis to log a handful of contests in 2018-19.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: On verge of landing contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was granted a qualifying offer from the Coyotes on Monday, reports.

Mermis reached the NHL last season, but it was a rather rude awakening for the defenseman, as he skated to a minus-2 rating and was held pointless over nine games. The Coyotes have the first right of refusal if another NHL team signs Mermis to an offer sheet, but more than likely, the 24-year-old will simply re-sign with Arizona ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Sent down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was demoted to AHL Tucson on Sunday, Craig Morgan of reports.

With the Coyotes' season all finished up, the team sent several skaters down to Tucson as the AHL team preps for the postseason. Mermis played nine games with the big club this year without scoring a point.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was recalled from AHL Tucson on Wednesday.

Mermis' call-up comes after Jakob Chychrun sustained a lower-body injury in Tuesday's matchup with Calgary. It's unclear whether the 23-year-old will need to suit up versus Vancouver on Thursday. In his previous seven outings, the Illinois native averaged a mere 10:26 of ice time and is still looking for his first NHL point.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Reassigned Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Sunday.

The 23-year-old rookie blueliner featured in seven games for the Desert Dogs during his recall, failing to record a point and averaging 10:26 of ice time. While Mermis could find himself back in the NHL before the end of the season, his performance to date doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration, though that could change in the future.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Heads to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was recalled to the Coyotes on Wednesday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Mermis was called up for added depth on the blue line since Niklas Hjalmarsson is nursing an upper-body injury. He likely won't slot immediately into the lineup, but the Coyotes want to have him on hand in case Hjalmarsson is still injured for their East Coast trip starting Monday.

Coyotes' Dakota Mermis: Training camp cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mermis was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Sunday, Craig Morgan of reports.

The Illinois native turned a lot of heads during training camp, which he began with little chance of making the Coyotes' Opening Night roster. With Mermis' demotion, only seven healthy defenders remain on Arizona's roster, making a future recall likely for Mermis in the even of additional injuries.
