    GLENDALE — The Coyotes departed on a four-game trip on Monday morning that will pit them against four of the Eastern Conference’s top six teams over a seven-day span.

  • DDB: Notes from Friday’s practice and more

    GLENDALE – After back-to-back games on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the Coyotes held an optional skate on Friday at the Ice Den in Scottsdale. About one-third of the players skated. Among those on the ice was newcomer Cal O’Reilly, who is expected to make his debut with the Coyotes on Saturday night vs. Edmonton. Phoenix […]
  • Off the Ice: Fiddler’s absence reveals real roster deciders

    When forward Vernon Fiddler chose to leave the Phoenix Coyotes during free agency over the summer, he left because he was going to get paid more and felt that he had done his share on the ice, right? Well, sort of. According to The Arizona Republic, the reason Fiddler left is quite the gray area. […]
  • Coyotes re-acquire forward Brett MacLean on waivers

    The Phoenix Coyotes have re-acquired forward Brett MacLean on waivers from the Winnipeg Jets. MacLean was placed on waivers by the Coyotes on Oct. 5 and claimed by the Jets. He played in five games for the Jets, notching two assists and two penalty minutes. Last season with the Coyotes, MacLean recorded two goals and […]
  • ‘Yotes pick up O’Reilly from Nashville

    The Phoenix Coyotes swung a trade on Friday, acquiring center Cal O’Reilly from the Nashville Predators in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft. O’Reilly, a 25-year-old Toronto native, was originally a 5th-round pick of the Predators in 2005 (150th overall selection). He made his NHL debut in the 2008-09 season, […]
  • Off the Ice: Kyle Turris’ impact on the domino effect

    Dominoes are fun. I remember, as a kid, pushing them all over to watch them fall in a neat little line, the momentary chaos making all the hard work of placing each one just right completely worth the trouble. Into my adult years, I still enjoy a sweet YouTube clip of a domino setup, but […]
  • DDB: Doan Would Trade Milestones for Wins

    GLENDALE – When it comes to talking about milestones, Coyotes captain Shane prefers to talk about other people’s rather than his. I learned this a long time ago, but it was underlined for me after practice today when I tried to speak to Doan about how he scored his 300th NHL goal on Tuesday night […]
  • Coyotes Shane Doan scores 300th career goal

    GLENDALE – Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan reached a significant achievement on Tuesday, scoring his 300th career goal. Doan was able to beat Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen at the 8:13 mark of the third period for the milestone goal and it gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead in the game. Unfortunately for Doan and Phoenix, […]
  • Off the Ice: Miele confirms his own potential

    It’s official. Hobey Baker award winner and Coyotes top prospect Andy Miele is going to be a part of the roster for a while. With Kyle Turris still a contractual hold-out, the Coyotes had a choice between Petteri Nokelainen and Miele. Nokelainen was dealt to the Canadiens, so it’s obvious the team is banking on […]
  • DDB: Miele to make NHL debut Sunday

    GLENDALE – I had a chance to speak with Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney during Friday’s practice and I asked him to explain why the team recalled center Andy Miele from the American Hockey League. “Andy had a strong training camp and he’s been our best player in the AHL and we think he can […]
  • Off the Ice: Kyle Turris for Zach Parise trade topics tackled

    On Wednesday, I tweeted a rumor about the New Jersey Devils being interested in Phoenix Coyotes holdout center Kyle Turris and the possibility that the Coyotes may be able to pry Zach Parise away from the Devils. Boy, did that get some responses. @ghosthoffa, along with @HR1616, see Parise’s value and know that the Devils […]
  • DDB: Maloney analyzes first five games

    GLENDALE – So, what do we know about the 2011-12 Coyotes after five games? Certainly there have been some highs and some lows already in the young season. I asked General Manager Don Maloney what he thought on Wednesday after the team’s practice inside Jobing.com Arena. “We’ve seen some extremes, that’s for sure,” Maloney said. […]
  • Off the Ice: Defense-first just isn’t working

    When you look at the numbers, the Phoenix Coyotes and their defense-first emphasis seems to be working really well. They have allowed just as many goals as they have scored (16) and have slightly less shots than their opponents (151 to 156) in the first five games. But their record doesn’t back the numbers, as […]
  • DDB: Ekman-Larsson emerging as key cog

    GLENDALE – Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson appears poised to have a breakout season in the NHL. Ekman-Larsson’s three goals in four games this season are tops in the NHL among defensemen and tied for fifth for all skaters. “Ekman-Larsson has taken the next step,” Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett said after Saturday’s 4-1 win over […]
