Coyotes' Michael Carcone: Lands deal to stay in desert
Carcone signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Thursday.
Carcone has yet to reach the NHL level but did manage to post 25 points -- 15 goals and 10 assists -- over just 35 games last season with AHL Tucson. He should provide some organizational depth for Arizona but will presumably open the season in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Hudson Fasching: Claims one-year, two-way deal
Fasching signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Thursday.
Fasching's deal will keep him in the desert for another season, though he is typically a fringe NHL player. He appeared in just five NHL games last season and has never played in more than 10 in a season, hence the two-way contract for him.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Conor Timmins: Shipped to Arizona
Timmins, along with a 2022 first-round pick and a conditional 2024 third-round pick, was traded from the Avalanche to the Coyotes in exchange for Darcy Kuemper on Wednesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Timmins would have had a tough time earning playing time with the Avalanche in 2021-22, as Cale Makar, Samuel Girard and Bowen Byram were among the team's impressive blue line depth. Instead, the 22-year-old Timmins should take on a noticeable role with the Coyotes, and he could be a large part of their upcoming rebuild. The second-round pick from 2017 had seven assists in 31 appearances last season while mostly being limited to third-pairing usage.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Lands with Arizona
Hutton (lower body) signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.
With Darcy Kuemper and Adin Hill traded away and Antti Raanta signing with the Hurricanes, Hutton has a chance to at least take on a 1B role with the Coyotes in 2021-22. The 35-year-old posted a 1-10-1 record with a 3.47 GAA and an .886 save percentage with the Sabres last season, his third straight year of declining performance after peaking in 2017-18. He's not likely to have much fantasy appeal for the rebuilding Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Joins Arizona in free agency
O'Brien signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
O'Brien produced three assists in 12 games with the Avalanche last season. He added 28 hits and 40 PIM as a physical, bottom-six forward. He'll likely compete for a fourth-line role with the Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Ryan Dzingel: Joining Arizona
Dzingel signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Dzingel appeared in 40 games split between the Hurricanes and Senators last season, picking up 13 points while averaging 12:42 per contest. The 29-year-old forward will likely have a larger role with Arizona in 2021-22, but the Coyotes are poised to be one of the worst teams in the NHL and have struggled to score for years, so Dzingel could be hard-pressed to surpass the 30-point mark next season....

Coyotes' Dmitrij Jaskin: Returning to NHL
Jaskin will sign a one-year, $3.2 million deal with the Coyotes when free agency begins on Wednesday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Since he last played in the NHL during the 2018-19 season, Jaskin has dominated with KHL Moscow, racking up 69 goals and 123 points over the last two seasons. Through 303 career NHL games with Washington and St. Louis, the 6-foot-2 winger scored 69 points while averaging 11:55 of ice time. Jaskin should have the opportunity to earn a top-six role with the Coyotes in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Vladislav Kolyachonok: Dealt to Coyotes
Kolyachonok, Anton Stralman and a second-round draft pick were traded to Arizona from Florida in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Kolyachonok was a second-round pick (52nd overall) in 2019 and was attached to Stralman in this cap-dump trade by the Panthers. The 20-year-old Kolyachonok scored six points in 46 games with KHL Minsk last season and added two assists in 10 appearances with AHL Syracuse. He joined the Panthers' postseason roster but has yet to make his NHL debut. Kolyachonok will likely begin the 2021-22 campaign with AHL Tucson.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Anton Stralman: Heading to desert
Stralman was traded to Arizona from Florida along with Vladislav Kolyachonok and a second-round pick in exchange for a seventh-round pick Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
This was a clear cap dump for the Panthers, who will clear up $5.5 million with Stralman's money off the books. The 34-year-old blueliner averaged 18:57 of ice time in 38 games with Florida last season, his lowest mark since the 2012-13 campaign. He had to waive his no-trade clause in order to be shipped off and he could still have a top-four role in the final season of his contract. Arizona still has more cap space to work with after acquiring plenty of assets in cap-related trades with Florida, Vancouver and Philadelphia this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Janis Moser: Surprise pick in Round 2
Moser was drafted 60th overall by the Coyotes at the 2021 NHL Draft on Saturday.
The Swiss league has long been underrated in terms of quality of play and Moser was one of the best defenders in that league the past season. He posted nine goals and 30 points in 48 games, while also playing for Switzerland at the World Championship. He's represented his home country in countless international tournaments over the years. Moser has a chance, but he turned 21 years of age this past June and his physical skills are somewhat limited. There doesn't appear to be a ton of upside here.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Ilya Fedotov: Russian heads to desert
Fedotov was drafted 43rd overall by the Coyotes at the 2021 NHL Draft on Saturday.
Fedotov had a good year (18 goals, 38 points in 58 games) in the Russia's MHL junior league, but he has played just two KHL games to date and has never represented his country internationally, making it difficult to get a true read of his future potential. Fedotov displays a nice mix of skill, physicality, and work ethic when you watch him play, so it's easy to see why Arizona was so interested, but his long-term upside is in question at the moment....

Coyotes' Cole Hults: Traded in minor-league deal
Hults was traded to the Coyotes from the Kings on Saturday.
Hults came close to his NHL debut last season. He spent a good chunk of the season on the Kings' taxi squad and 19 games (one goal, four assists) with Ontario (AHL). Hults and Bokondji Imama head to Arizona in this minor-league trade in exchange for forwards Brayden Burke and Tyler Steenbergen.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Bokondji Imama: New opportunity result of trade
Imama was traded to the Coyotes from the Kings on Saturday.
The 24-year-old forward is a physical presence. He registered a team-high 56 PIM in 31 games with the Ontario Reign (AHL) this season, but he's more than just muscle. Imama also scored nine goals and 14 points in those 31 games. And while he is yet to make his NHL debut, Imama did get a call-up to the Kings' taxi squad in April. He may get an opportunity in the desert that he didn't have in Hollywood given the Coyotes' push to make over their roster. Cole Hults is also headed to Arizona with him in this minor league deal, which sent forwards Brayden Burke and Tyler Steenbergen to Los Angeles.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Josh Doan: Stays close to home
Doan was drafted 37th overall by the Coyotes at the 2021 NHL Draft on Saturday.
Was there ever a doubt? Doan, the son of Coyotes legend Shane Doan, was born and raised in the Phoenix area and will now get to play his professional hockey close to home. While some people are going to roll their eyes at this pick given the familial connection, Doan is a legitimate prospect. He has plenty of individual skill, with his main drawback being a lack of foot speed. Doan, who went undrafted in his first year of eligibility in 2020, is headed to Arizona State this fall....

Coyotes' Dylan Guenther: Sniper goes ninth at 2021 NHL Draft
Guenther was drafted ninth overall by the Coyotes at the 2021 NHL Draft on Friday.
Guenther scores goals naturally -- his one-timer is already an above-average NHL weapon. And he owns the power play. Guenther's talent projects him into the Coyotes' top six, but some scouts question his pace. For a guy with his talent, he sometimes ends up overshadowed by guys with less skill. We're not sure why. Whether he ends up on the first line or second, Guenther is going to score a lot on the power play. He may not end up being a superstar, but he is going to deliver consistent 30-goal, 60-point fantasy seasons for your squad.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Antoine Roussel: Bound for desert
Roussel (lower body) was traded Friday to Arizona along with Jay Beagle, Loui Eriksson, a 2021 first-round pick, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 seventh-round pick from Vancouver in exchange for Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Conor Garland, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. In addition, the Coyotes will retain a portion of Ekman-Larsson's salary.
Roussel, Beagle and Eriksson will combine to cost $12 million against the cap next year in what is essentially a massive salary dump for the Canucks. In 35 games last year, the 31-year-old Roussel managed a meager four points and figures to slot into a fourth-line role, assuming he's even in the lineup and not serving as a healthy scratch....

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Dealt to Desert Dogs
Eriksson, Jay Beagle, Antoine Roussel ,the ninth overall pick in Friday night's Entry Draft, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 seventh-round pick were traded by the Canucks to the Coyotes in exchange for Conor Garland and Oliver Ekman-Larsson on Friday, TSN.ca reports.
Eriksson has just one season remaining on his albatross of a six-year, $36 million deal, and the Coyotes aren't in a position to compete in 2021-22, so they've essentially decided to take on several ugly short-term contracts while sending Garland and Ekman-Larsson to Vancouver in order to acquire the ninth overall pick in Friday evening's draft. Eriksson appeared in just seven games with the Canucks last season, tallying one helper over that span, and it isn't clear if he'll have a regular role with Arizona next year.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Jay Beagle: Traded to Arizona
Beagle, Loui Eriksson, Antoine Roussel, the ninth overall pick in Friday night's Entry Draft, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 seventh-round pick were traded by the Canucks to the Coyotes in exchange for Conor Garland and Oliver Ekman-Larsson on Friday, TSN.ca reports.
This deal essentially boils down to the Canucks trading three overpaid aging players and the ninth overall pick in Friday night's draft for an attractive asset in Garland and an overpaid but solid top-four defender in Ekman-Larsson. Beagle appeared in 30 games with Vancouver in 2020-21, picking up just five points over that span. The 35-year-old pivot will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Coyotes next season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Shayne Gostisbehere: Traded to Arizona
Gostisbehere, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2022 seventh-round pick were traded by the Flyers to the Coyotes on Thursday.
Gostisbehere still has two seasons remaining on the six-year, $27 million contract he signed with Philadelphia in June of 2017, so this move essentially boils down to the Flyers giving up two picks in order to shed the 28-year-old blueliners $4.5 million annual salary. Gostisbehere should get plenty of playing time on a weak Coyotes team in 2021-22, but his offensive upside will be negatively impacted by Arizona's low-scoring approach. The 2012 third-round pick notched nine goals and 20 points through 41 games with Philadelphia last season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Andrew Ladd: Moves to Coyotes organization
Ladd was traded from the Islanders to the Coyotes on Saturday.
Ladd didn't play in the NHL last season, as the 35-year-old winger wasn't able to win a job with the Islanders. Saturday's trade is about as pure a salary dump as ever -- the Coyotes received three draft picks and didn't give up any tangible assets in the deal. It's unlikely Ladd cracks the lineup in Arizona, and it's unclear if he'll even be able to play with AHL Tucson after appearing in just 67 total games at any level in the last three seasons....
