Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Hits waivers Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was placed on waivers Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

Bunting was always going to be a long-shot for the Opening Night roster. The 25-year-old left wing will likely report to AHL Tucson, where he'll probably spend the bulk of the upcoming campaign.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Inks two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Friday.

Bunting spent most of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, racking up 19 goals and 41 points in 52 games, but he also made five appearances with the big club, scoring one goal over that span. The 23-year-old will likely have a similar role in 2019-20, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Receives qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes extended Bunting a qualifying offer Tuesday.

Bunting only appeared in five games with the big club this season, scoring one goal over that span, but he was pretty impressive during his time in the minors, racking up 19 goals and 41 points in 52 contests. The 2014 fourth-round pick will compete for a spot on Arizona's Opening Night roster during training camp.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Shipped back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes assigned Bunting to AHL Tuscon on Wednesday.

Bunting joined the Coyotes as the extra forward for the team's three-game road trip, but he didn't draw in during the first two. Richard Panik (illness) will connect with the team in Vancouver, eliminating the necessity of Bunting's spot on the roster. He should remain among the first names considered for recall if injuries arise at the top level.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Called up to Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was recalled from AHL Tucson on Sunday.

Assuming Bunting gets into the lineup for the Coyotes following his recall, the 23-year-old winger will have a chance to add to his NHL total of one goal for his only point in five games. He's flashed some serious scoring ability at the AHL level this season with 27 points in 31 games for the Roadrunners.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was placed on waivers by the Coyotes on Thursday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

By waiving Bunting, Arizona will be able to move him down to the minors and activate a player off injured reserve -- possibly Brad Richardson (upper body), who appears to be close to a return. The 23-year-old Bunting will rejoin the Roadrunners, for whom he racked up 26 points in 29 minor-league contests this year. This likely won't be the last we've seen of Bunting in the NHL this season, as he continues to push for more opportunities with his strong play with AHL Tucson.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Summoned from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Bunting from AHL Tuscon on Wednesday

Bunting took advantage of his first cup of coffee at the top level, recording a goal in his NHL debut before going pointless in his three games before the demotion. Still, the 23-year-old has recorded 26 points through 29 games with Tuscon, and his recall suggests the Coyotes are in need of another forward for Thursday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Returned to Roadrunners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was assigned to AHL Tucson on Tuesday.

Bunting has a goal in four NHL appearances this season but has been far more productive at the AHL level, tallying 26 points in 29 minor-league contests. The 23-year-old had been a healthy scratch the past two games.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Bunting from AHL Tucson on Wednesday.

The Coyotes only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Bunting's promotion, so he'll likely round out their depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 2014 fourth-round pick has notched 11 goals and 26 points in 29 AHL appearances this campaign.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Moves back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was sent back to AHL Tucson on Saturday.

An industrious winger known for his rigid work ethic, Bunting heads back to the minors having failed to draw into the lineup against the Canucks on Thursday. This transaction comes as a bit of a surprise since many felt he'd be a viable replacement option for Nick Schmaltz (lower body), who is lost for the year, but then again, the Coyotes did trade for Jordan Weal on Friday.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Bunting from AHL Tucson on Wednesday.

Nick Schmaltz has been ruled out of the rest of the campaign due to a lower-body injury, so Bunting could be in line for an extended stay with the big club. The 23-year-old winger has racked up six goals and 18 points in 22 AHL appearances this season.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Sent to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona assigned Bunting to AHL Tucson on Saturday.

The Coyotes activated Vinnie Hinostroza (lower body) off injured reserve in a corresponding move, so they're no longer in need of Bunting's services as a depth forward. The 2014 fourth-round pick will return to a prominent role with AHL Tucson, where he's racked up six goals and 18 points in 20 appearances this campaign.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Returns to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was recalled from AHL Tucson on Thursday.

Bunting is an organizational depth option for a Coyotes team that continues to struggle in a highly competitive Pacific Division.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Shipped down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Monday.

Bunting appeared in three games during December in which he tallied one goal, five shots and a plus-1 rating while averaging 9:11 of ice time. Unless Michael Grabner (eye) or Vinnie Hinostroza (lower body) is ready to go following the Christmas break, Bunting will likely be recalled back to Arizona ahead of Thursday's clash with the Kings.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona recalled Bunting from AHL Tucson on Friday.

The Coyotes only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Bunting's promotion, so he'll round out the team's depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 23-year-old winger has notched six goals and 18 points in 20 AHL appearances this campaign.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting was demoted to AHL Tucson on Monday.

Bunting scored his a goal in his first career NHL contest on Dec. 11 and it was the only point he scored in three games during his stint with the big club. He will return to the Tucson Roadrunners where he's racked up 18 points and 26 PIM in 20 AHL games this season.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Jumps to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Bunting from AHL Tucson on Friday.

Arizona's forwards are littered with injuries, so Bunting was brought up to provide depth and work in the bottom six. He's in his fourth season in the AHL and is still looking for his NHL debut. Bunting has 18 points in 20 minor-league games this year but it remains to be seen if his play can translate to another rank.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Inks two-way deal with Coyotoes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes.

Bunting posted a career-best 43 points with AHL Tucson last season, providing enough spark to warrant another two-way contract from the Coyotes. Still just 22, the 2014 fourth-round pick has yet to crack an NHL roster, but continued play near his current level could eventually result in his debut.

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Handed qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bunting has been extended a qualifying offer by the Coyotes.

Bunting enjoyed his best season yet as a pro in 2017-18, totaling 23 goals and 43 points in 67 games with AHL Tucson, so the Coyotes are clearly interested in seeing if he'll continue to improve this season, and whether his success in the minors may ultimately translate to success with the big club. However, there's no reason for fantasy owners to have the 2014 fourth-round pick on their radars at this point.
