Finishing the season with just 25 wins, the Arizona Coyotes turn their attention to a critical offseason for the future of the franchise.

With the groundwork already happening, the fun of the offseason starts on Thursday with the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

The first round begins at 4 p.m. MST time and will be broadcast on ESPN. Rounds 2-7 will run on NHL Network and ESPN+ beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday.

This draft is set to be a big one for Arizona, which owns seven selections in the draft’s top 45 picks.

After an abundance of trades last offseason, the Coyotes have set themselves up to be major players in this years draft.
