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

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.
