Phoenix Coyotes News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
12/5/13: The Coyotes are one of the better teams in the NHL this season and a lot of that has to do with the offensive production they are getting from their defenseman. Offensive defensemen come with a price - they are often times scored upon, so it is a high risk, high reward situation. The Coyotes pairing of Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson are second in the NHL in defensive pair scoring with five goals and 29 assists. Only the Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Boumeester of the St. Louis Blues have more combined points among defensive pairings.
11/28/13: Don't look now, but the Phoenix Coyotes are quietly one of the best teams in the NHL so far. It is a long way until April, and a lot of things can still happen. That being said, the Coyotes are among the eight Western Conference teams that have separated themselves from the rest of the Conference. Remember that the top eight teams make the playoffs. Phoenix is tied with the Kings, and both are just a point behind the Sharks and Ducks in the Pacific Division. The Coyotes always had talent, but this is more proof that stable ownership does, in fact, influence team play.
11/21/13: All NHL players remember their first goal, and now there is another guy who gets to tell the story to his grandchildren one day. Rookie defenseman Connor Murphy, playing in his first NHL game ever, blasted a slapshot through traffic to beat Lightning goalie Anders Lindback with less than three minutes remaining in the second period. The goal restored the Coyotes three goal cushion. Murphy was praised for his play in the game, but was sent back to Portland in the minors afterward. He should not worry, with play like that, he should be back in NHL soon.
11/14/13: Phoenix has quickly become a place that opposing teams do not want to play in. All good coaches preach dominating at home, regardless of the sport. The Coyotes went 14-8-2 on home ice last season, which is simply okay. This season they are dominant, starting off 8-0-1 through five weeks of the season. Part of the reason is a resurgent power play that is ranked sixth at home, as opposed to 25th last season. By staying dominant on home ice, the Coyotes may be able to force their way into the playoffs this season and make a run at that elusive Stanley Cup.
11/7/13: The Phoenix Coyotes got a great reassurance last week when defenseman Kieth Yandle finally started producing offensively .Yandle is always among the league leaders in scoring among defenseman and even put up 59 points a couple of years ago. He only had two assists through nine games before exploding. He then proceeded to contribute six points in his next three games and showed that he is still to be feared. His two points against Edmonton came at a critical time in the third period. He scored the game tying goal, then kept the puck in the offensive zone and assisted on the game winner.
10/31/13: It is hard to say giving up seven goals in a game is a hard loss, but the Coyotes can rightfully say that against the L.A. Kings last week. The Kings scored first and often, builiding up a 4-0 lead. Normally this is the time to pull the goalie and give the scrubs some extra ice time. But the Coyotes battled back and scored four goals of their own in just 13 minutes to tie the game (two by Martin Hanzal). Unfortunately for the Phoenix faithful, the Kings got their wind back and Mike Richards scored a shorthanded goal in the third period, then the Kings added two more. Final: L.A. 7, Phoenix 4.
10/24/13: The Coyotes are trying to show everyone that they can be the team that went to the Western Conference Finals in the 2011-2012 season. The team recently completed their longest roadtrip of the season, a five game jaunt around the country. The lost the first two games of the trip then took a few minutes to check themselves. They completed the roadtrip with three straight wins, establishing themselves as a team not to be overlooked. Phoenix is 4-2-2, good for 10 points. That would put them near the top in the Eastern Conference, but only gets them to a tie for fourth in the Western Pacific.
10/17/13: Only five games into the season and the Coyotes are a game over .500. They will need to continue that pace for the 77 games remaining in the regular season because the Western Conference is again hyper-competitive. Much of the Coyotes' fate this year lies squarely on the shoulders of goaltender Mike Smith. Smith was outstanding two years ago as Phoenix reached the Western Semis, but he was awful last season. He signed a big contract to stay in the desert and earned a big opening night win. He lost his next to matches. In short, he needs to find his consistency and confidence for this team to do anything this season.
10/10/13: Phoenix is looking to return to the playoffs this season and a lot of the offense will likely need right wing Radim Vrbata to provide a lot of scoring. He popped in 35 goals two years ago when the Coyotes went to the Western Conference Finals. He suffered last season without Ray Whitney to set him up. If the team could find a playmaking left winger for him, then he could be a 30 goal scorer again. The Coyotes won two of their first three games and look a lot better than experts expected out of the gate. Perhaps with stable ownership in place the team can start to achieve up to their expectations.
10/3/13: Coyote fans should be excited about this season. They finally have stable ownership - so the team is going to stay put at least for a little while. Mike Smith returns as the goal tender, and he is one of the best in the game; and Shane Doan - the ultimate Coyote - is here to stay. Phoenix missed the playoffs last season with the shortened schedule and limited training camp. But they should be able to make a run at the post season with the core that got them there in the 2011-12 season. Be on the lookout for new Coyote Mike Ribiero who should center the first line.
9/26/13: Long-time Coyotes star Shane Doan stayed away from signing with anyone - including the Coyotes - until the Coyotes' ownership situation was settled. He always wanted to stay in the desert, and once a stable ownership group was approved over the summer, he did sign. That makes it even more frustrating that Doan had to leave a scrimmage last week with an injury. It looks like a muscle strain. Doan had surgeries to repair two sports hernias last season, which limited his mobility. Hopefully this is a minor injury and Doan will be back to his old self soon.
9/19/13: The Phoenix Coyotes incarnation of the franchise got a new lease on life a few weeks ago when they were (finally) bought by someone who will keep the team in desert for the foreseeable future. But the first training camp under a stable ownership got off to a rocky start when Swedish defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson missed practice. OEL apparently forgot to file his immigration paperwork on time and is now working on getting a visa. GM Don Maloney is not happy with his young blueliner, and for good reason. Every player is accountable, and this is a delay that could have easily been avoided.
9/12/13: Congratulations to the long-suffering fans of the Phoenix Coyotes. It has been an uphill battle for several years just to keep the team in the desert. Older fans will remember that they were once the original Winnipeg Jets, but moved in the mid-1990's. Coyotes' vice-president of marketing, Ted Santiago, is excited and plans on using an expanded budget to market the team to the locals. The Coyotes have made the playoffs in three of the past four years, and have a good nucleus to build around. Here is hoping there are no more threats to the team's well being in the near future.
9/4/13: While some teams are rebuilding or counting ticket sales, the Phoenix Coyotes have a more operational problem on their hands. To date, they still have not come to an agreement with left winger Mikkel Boedker, who is a restricted free agent and training camp is right around the corner. Boedker will not be allowed to participate in camp until a deal is done or he is no longer with the team. The deal will likely get done soon, as Boedker needs the camp to work with new center Mike Ribeiro and try to get the left wing job on the number one line.
8/29/13: It has been a couple of weeks, but Phoenix is still excited that the team is staying put rather than moving. Four investors, led by George Gosbee, were able to finalize a deal to purchase the team and keep it in the desert. The group has an out clause from their lease if they lose $50 million dollars, but no investor wants to lose that kind of money so it is pretty much assured the new ownership will try to make it work in the Phoenix area. Even throughout the ownership turmoil, the Coyotes have been a strong team. They finished above .500 last season and should improve with stability.
8/22/13: The Phoenix Coyotes have one of the great names in all of professional sports. They have long distanced themselves of the mediocrity of the old Winnipeg Jets and stand alone as a competitive member of the Western Conference. For the first time in years they can play without questions about their financial stability or ownership. They made the Western Conference finals two years ago and missed out on last year's playoffs by only four points. With a new lease on life, the Coyotes look to regain their spark this season. It will be a tough road, but they do have the talent to make the playoffs.
8/15/13: Against all odds, the NHL and the City of Phoenix (actually Glendale) managed to keep the team in desert. The team has been under tremendous financial pressure for the past four years and has been operated by the NHL. There were a couple previous attempts to sell the team that fell through, and it looked like the Coyotes would be moving to Seattle, Kansas City, or even the Toronto area. Fortunately, George Gosbee was able to secure a deal to buy the team and negotiate a lease to use Jobing.com arena. Now they can focus on hockey, which is what the fans and the team really wants.
8/8/13: In what might qualify as the least newsworthy item of the month, the Phoenix Coyotes have agreed to renew their affiliation with the ECHL team the Gwinette Gladiators. The ECHL is roughly the equivalent of AA baseball, so most of the players that pass through the Atlanta area team will never see the NHL. What is more surprising is that the league seems intent on expanding. The Coyotes were able to negotiate a deal with the city to stay in the Phoenix area, but sources now say the league wants to expand into the Seattle area - which is one place that many thought the Coyotes would end up at.
7/25/13: The nightmares that come with business side of a hockey team never seem to cease for the Phoenix Coyotes. This is a team that fled Winnipeg almost 20 years ago, only to watch a new Winnipeg Jets receive an overjoyous reunion. They have battled through bankruptcy, unqualified owners and wannabe owners, as well as a seemingly death knell battle with the city for a lease. All of that is settled. Then comes word that the new NHL division will have them travelling the second most miles in the league - a staggering 53,000 miles next season - placing them at a distinct competitive disadvantage
7/11/13: A couple weeks ago the Glendale City Commission agreed to terms with the Phoenix Coyotes on a lease and management agreement for the arena. That is keeping the Coyotes in Phoenix. Most people felt that if they moved it would be to Seattle and their new arena. However, reports are surfacing that Portland, Oregon was in the mix as well. Portland has the Rose Garden, which can seat 18,000 for hockey. Portland is not as big as Seattle (2.2 million vs. 3.5 million in the metro areas), but is bigger than current NHL markets like Columbus and Raleigh.
7/4/13: Hopefully, hopefully the saga is over for the ownership of the Phoenix Coyotes. The NHL has owned and run the team for the past few seasons while ownership and arena rental agreements have been worked out, failed, and worked out again. The Glendale, Arizona government voted to approve a 15 year, $225 million lease of the Jobing.com Arena to Renaissance Sports. Renaissance will get ownership of the team, and hopefully provide some stability to the franchise. There is an out clause that allows Renaissance to move the team if their debt exceeds $50 million, though Glendale officials do not believe that will happen.
10/4/12: Checking in on the locked out Phoenix Coyotes players in Europe finds that Mikkel Boedker has signed in the SM-Liga league with Lukko but has yet to appear in a game yet. Meanwhile in the Czech league veteran defenseman Rostislav Klesla is playing for HC Trinec and has played in four games with no points and checks in at a minus two. Back in Phoenix there is still no movement on the Coyotes ownership situation. It appears that this situation may be in flux until after the NHL lockout. Former San Jose Sharks CFO Greg Jamison is attempting to purchase the team and keep them in the desert.
9/27/12: Like most NHL teams the Phoenix Coyotes have had some European defections during the NHL lockout. Last week Mikkel Boedker signed with Lukko of the Swedish Elite league. He has yet to play a game with Lukko. With Phoenix last year Boedker played in all 82 games scoring 11 goals and 24 assists. He was the Coyotes first round draft pick (8th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Veteran defenseman Rostislav Klesla has also jumped across the pond, signing with HC Trinec of the Czech Republic hockey league. Klesla appeared in 65 games with Phoenix last year and had a stellar plus 13 defensive rating.
8/16/12: The Phoenix Coyotes are hoping they get to retain the services of free agent forward Shane Doan. Doan has been hesitant to re-sign with Phoenix while the future of the club is in flux. He has met with several other teams and potential Phoenix owner Greg Jamison. Jamison has a tentative agreement in place with the NHL and the city of Glendale to purchase the team but the deal is still in jeopardy. There are questions about the legality of the deal and whether or not Jamison has the investors and the money to purchase and operate the team.
7/26/12: The Phoenix Coyotes still wait to see where 35 year-old captain Shane Doan will end up playing hockey next season. Doan reached out to the prospective Coyotes ownership group this week to find out if the sale of the team would actually happen. According to reports he did not hear back and continued his seemingly endless free agency tour. Doan has now been linked to 16 different NHL teams, the latest being the Montreal Canadians. Doan is a quality player who has played on a number of bad teams in Phoenix in front of empty stands, but appears to prefer staying, only if there is a team to stay for.
5/25/12 The Phoenix Coyotes got a 2-0 win in Game 4 to avoid the sweep in their Western Conference finals series against the Los Angeles Kings. They then took the Kings to overtime in Game 5, looking to prolong their season just one more game, however Dustin Penner put one in the net for the Kings with under three minutes remaining in overtime to give Los Angeles a 4-3 win and end the Coyotes' postseason run. In the end, Phoenix was helpless to stop the juggernaut that has been the Los Angeles Kings in the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs, a team that has lost only 2 games thus far in their run to the Stanley Cup Finals.
5/18/12 The Phoenix Coyotes are one loss away from being swept out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, as they fell 2-1 to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 at the Staples Center on Thursday night and now trail 3-0 in their best-of-seven Western Conference finals series. Facing elimination, the Coyotes will look to keep their season alive on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. Although coming back from a 3-0 series deficit is nearly impossible, it has been done before and the Coyotes will need to add their name to the NHL history books if they have any hopes of making their first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.
5/11/12 The Phoenix Coyotes continued to roll through the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators that gave them a 4-1 series victory and catapulted them into the Western Conference Finals where they will meet the Los Angeles Kings. Two second period goals from Derek Morris and Martin Hanzal gave the Coyotes a 2-0 lead that they would not relinquish in Game 5. A late goal by Nashville midway through the third period cut the lead in half, but it wasn't enough for the Predators, as the Coyotes held on for the series victory.
5/3/12: The Phoenix Coyotes did not let winning their first Stanley Cup playoff series go to their heads. Taking on the Nashville Predators the Coyotes stormed out to an impressive two games to none lead in their second round series. The series heads back to Nashville where the Coyotes have a chance to put a stranglehold on the Predators and make it to their first ever Western Conference Finals. All of this success is impressive when you consider that the team faces big uncertainties as to where they will be playing next season. That has not affected the players who continue to shine on the ice.
4/26/12: For the first time since moving to the desert the Phoenix Coyotes have advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They did so by beating the Chicago Blackhawks four games to two in a thrilling series that saw the first five games go into overtime. That had not happened in the NHL since guys played without helmets. Goalie Mike Smith was the star as the Blackhawks could not solve him and he has propelled the Coyotes into the second round where they will face the tough Nashville Predators. They will have to take on the Predators without winger Raffi Torres who was suspended for 25 games by the league for his hit on Marion Hossa.
4/19/12: The Coyotes followed up their first ever Pacific Division championship with three exciting games to open the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Facing the Chicago Blackhawks the Coyotes ended up in overtime for all three of their opening night games. The first two saw the tying goal scored in the last minute. After three games Phoenix has a two games to one lead over Chicago in the best of seven. The Coyotes will have to go the rest of this series without winger Raffi Torres who has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL for his viscous hit on Chicago's Marion Hossa in Game 3. Hossa had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher and was later released from a Chicago area hospital.
