The Arizona Coyotes had a big offseason, undergoing a change in ownership and acquiring Phil Kessel, as well as signing Clayton Keller to a contract extension. Now, it’s time to prepare for what’s next.

The team will begin its 2019 training camp on Thursday, Sept. 12 as players report for medicals and fitness testing. GM John Chayka, head coach Rick Tocchet and the players are all scheduled to meet with the media on that day.

On Friday, Sept. 13, practices begin. All training camp practices are free and open to the public, and fans can enter through Gate 3 at Gila River Arena.

The Coyotes will also have two home preseason games, also at Gila River Arena. Both games are free for children under 14 years old, first responders and military.
