Top Coyotes News

  • Coyotes' Lawson Crouse: Avoids arbitration, signs extension

    Crouse (hand) signed a five-year, $21.5 million contract extension with the Coyotes on Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    The deal carries a cap hit of $4.3 million. Now 25, Crouse reached several new career highs last season with 20 goals, 34 points and 17:26 of average ice time over 65 games. He's expected to assume a full-time role in the team's top six and top power-play unit -- where he averaged 1:55 in 2021-22 -- but fantasy managers would be wise not to bank on a repeat of his 15.3 shooting percentage, which was well above his career mark of 10.4.

  • Coyotes' Conor Geekie: Secures entry-level deal

    Geekie signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Arizona on Monday.

    Geekie tallied 24 goals and 70 points in 63 games with WHL Winnipeg last season and was taken 11th overall in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The big-bodied center should play in juniors again during the 2022-23 campaign as he continues his development. Geekie just turned 18 in May, and he's likely a few years away from making an impact with the Coyotes.

  • Coyotes' Lukas Klok: Links up with Arizona

    Klok signed a one-year, entry-level contract with the Coyotes on Thursday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan

    Klok played with Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk of the KHL in 2021-22, posting 31 points in 44 contests. He also represented Czechia at the Olympics. The 27-year-old left-shot defenseman could push for a roster spot with the Coyotes in training camp.

  • Coyotes' Jon Gillies: Snags two-way deal

    Gillies signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.

    Gillies bounced around the NHL, AHL and even the ECHL in 2021-22, but he spent most of his time with the Devils, going 3-10-0 while posting a sub-par 3.76 GAA and .885 save percentage through 19 appearances. The Coyotes may not be done adding netminders, but for now, Gillies will slot in as the team's No. 2 option in goal behind Karel Vejmelka.

  • Coyotes' Bokondji Imama: Back with Desert Dogs

    Imama signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.

    Imama made his NHL debut in 2021-22, scoring one goal with 10 hits and five PIM in four contests. He's best known for his toughness, but he'll likely have to open the campaign at AHL Tucson.

  • Coyotes' Jean-Sebastien Dea: Heading to desert

    Dea signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Dea spent all of 2021-22 with AHL Laval, recording 52 points in 70 contests. Surprisingly, he didn't play with the Canadiens at all despite their significant run of injuries and poor performance. The 28-year-old will have a chance to revitalize his career in Arizona, a team that's still rebuilding and could have a bottom-six spot open for him.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Traded to Arizona

    The Rangers traded Nemeth, a 2025 second-round pick and a future conditional pick to Arizona in exchange for Ty Emberson on Wednesday.

    The Coyotes are essentially using their ample cap space to take the overpaid Nemeth in exchange for picks to support their rebuild. Nemeth will likely have a regular spot in Arizona's lineup next season, but he only put up seven points through 63 games with the Rangers last year, so don't expect him to turn into a viable fantasy option in 2022-23.

  • Coyotes' Nick Bjugstad: Signs one-year pact

    Bjugstad penned a one-year, $900,000 contract with Arizona on Wednesday.

    Bjugstad once again missed the 20-point threshold, the third straight season he has missed that mark. With the Yotes, the Minnesota native could be in line to see an uptick in ice time and possibly a top-six role which would allow him more opportunities to produce offensively.

  • Coyotes' Josh Brown: Lands deal with Arizona

    Brown signed a two-year contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.

    Brown drew into 52 games split between the Senators and the Bruins in 2021-22, collecting six helpers and 118 hits while averaging 14:13 of ice time over that span. The 28-year-old defender may take on a larger role with a rebuilding Arizona team in 2022-23, but he'll likely struggle to even surpass the 10-point mark.

  • Coyotes' Troy Stecher: Signs with Coyotes

    Stecher signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Stecher was limited to just 29 games in 2021-22 split between the Red Wings and the Kings due to a wrist injury, picking up only three points over that span. He might have a regular spot in the lineup with Arizona in 2022-23, but he'll almost certainly produce minimal offense on what will likely be a bottom-feeding Coyotes team.

  • Coyotes' Laurent Dauphin: Signs two-way deal

    Dauphin signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Dauphin split time between the NHL and the minors in 2021-22, picking up 12 points through 38 appearances with the Canadiens and 16 points through 18 games with AHL Laval. The 27-year-old forward will likely have a similar role with the Coyotes in 2022-23.

  • Coyotes' Cam Dineen: Inks one-year deal

    Dineen signed a one-year contract with the Coyotes on Monday.

    Dineen averaged 15:38 of ice time with seven assists over 34 games in his rookie campaign. The 24-year-old blueliner also notched 19 points in 21 games with AHL Tucson.

  • Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Inks one-year deal

    Fischer (lower body) signed a one-year extension with Arizona on Monday.

    Fischer tallied five goals and 10 points while averaging 13:07 of ice time through 53 games last season. He'll likely fill a middle-six role with the Coyotes again during the 2022-23 campaign. The 25-year-old hasn't surpassed the 20-point mark since the 2017-18 season.

  • Coyotes' Jeremy Langlois: Grabbed by Coyotes in Round 3

    Langlois was selected 94th overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Langlois was thrown to the wolves this past season, playing a ton of minutes for a QMJHL Cape Breton team which finished with a 14-47-7 record, 22 less points than any other team in the league, and a minus-152 goal differential. The lack of talent on his team helps explain Langlois' minus-39 rating. On a more positive note, Langlois thinks the game extremely well and can help generate offense from the back end. There's legitimate upside assuming Langlois eventually finds himself in a bit better situation down the road.

  • Coyotes' Miko Matikka: Joins Coyotes in Round 3

    Matikka was selected 67th overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    At his best, Matikka looks like a top-six winger. He has the size (6-foot-3) to impact a game and possesses a terrific shot. Matikka's biggest issue at this point is giving the same consistent effort every night. He spent this past season playing in a Finnish Jr. league (19 goals, 33 points in 30 games) he was probably too good for. Matikka will head to the University of Denver this fall where he will work to earn the trust of coach David Carle, all the while playing for a team which won the NCAA Championship a year ago.

  • Coyotes' Julian Lutz: Selected 43rd at 2022 Entry Draft

    Lutz was selected 43rd overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Injuries limited Lutz to just 18 games this past season, 14 with his club team in Munich of the DEL and four with the German U18 club. So it's fair to wonder how high he might have gone had he been fully healthy. Lutz's biggest issue is his night-to-night consistency. At his best, he impacts the game in a variety of ways. He's big (6-foot-2) and has quick hands and a stellar shot. But he disappears, too. Lutz is a worthwhile gamble by Arizona at this stage of the draft.

  • Coyotes' Artyom Duda: Defender joins Coyotes in Round 2

    Duda was selected 36th overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Duda was excellent (14 goals, 42 points in 51 games) for Krasnaya in the Russian MHL Jr. league this past season. The difficulty for scouts at this point is projecting what type of player Duda can become moving forward because he spent this past year playing at a level he was too good for. Duda is a legitimate two-way defender, although his offense is probably ahead of his defense at this point. He shoots the puck well enough to beat opposing goaltenders from distance and got significant power-play time this year. Defensively, Duda reads plays well despite not being particularly physical. It's going to be a long process, but Duda has multiple paths to potential NHL value at some point down the road.

  • Coyotes' Maveric Lamoureux: Tall defender goes 29th

    Lamoureux was selected 29th overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Thursday.

    Lamoureux is a 6-foot-7 character defender who plays heavy, hard hockey. His compete and attitude are through the proverbial roof, but the rest of his game needs development. Honestly, it's hard to be consistent with such long and growing limbs. Big guys develop slowly, so Lamoureux will be given a long ramp to consolidate his game. When he does, he has a chance to be a solid defender in the NHL.

  • Coyotes' Zack Kassian: Newest member of Coyotes

    The Oilers traded Kassian, the 29th overall selection in this year's Entry Draft and future second (2025) and third round (2024) picks to the Coyotes on Thursday in exchange for the 32nd overall pick, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    The Oilers paid a hefty price in order to dump Kassian and his $3.2 million cap hit each of the next two seasons on the asset-collecting Coyotes. Kassian spent some time playing in Edmonton's top-six a year ago, but he's always been best suited for a depth role. He managed just six goals and 19 points in 58 games for the Oilers last season and it's difficult to believe those numbers will improve on an Arizona squad with considerably less overall talent. Kassian will be 32 years of age next January and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues this coming fall.

  • Coyotes' Conor Geekie: Picked 11th overall at 2022 Draft

    Geekie was selected 11th overall by the Coyotes in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Thursday.

    Geekie is a highly skilled, massive center that projects to play at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds. His hands are silky in a Ryan Getzlaf kind of way, and he skates well enough for a guy who is already 6-foot-4 (although his wheels will never be his strength). Big centers have a long development curve and Geekie needs time to grow his faceoff skills and perfect his powerful possession game.
