Once upon a time, Sam Gagner, Robert Nilsson, Andrew Cogliano and Tom Gilbert were going to be the core of a contender in Edmonton.
It didn’t quite work out the way they all hoped, however, and the last remaining member of Edmonton’s first rebuild went to the Coyotes last summer while the organization struggled along with Rebuild No. 2.
They met for the first time Wednesday...
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett ushered his players off the ice earlier than normal during Wednesday's morning skate, even getting captain Shane Doan to abandon his routine of loitering long after the others have left the ice.
"They need energy for tonight," he said.
But the extra bit of rest after a three-day layoff didn't help stir the Coyotes against the visiting...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mikkel Boedker is on pace for 137 goals this season. We're guessing he'll fall short of that number.
"It's going to even out eventually," he said with a grin. "But obviously when you're hot, things tend to go in."
Boedker is magma hot. The 24-year-old forward got every sort of roll Wednesday against the Edmonton Oilers to record...
Mikkel Boedker scored on a power play, a soft backhander that trickled in and into an empty net.
An interesting collection of goals for his first career hat trick -- and his team needed nearly all of them.
Boedker scored two of his three goals in the third period and added an assist, helping the Arizona Coyotes outlast the winless Edmonton Oilers 7-4 on Wednesday night.

Boedker scored in the first period and gave Arizona a two-goal lead midway through the third. He added an empty-net goal for his first career hat trick, giving him five goals in three...
Phoenix Coyotes forward David Moss was serving a penalty for hooking when one of the funniest gaffes of the year happened. Moss’ glove got caught in the door as he was leaving the box and he realized it too late as he left the box. He panicked when he realized what had happened but then […]

Mike Smith said he didn't feel comfortable during his disappointing performance in Arizona's season opener, and coach Dave Tippett felt it would be best to sit his No. 1 goaltender in the Coyotes' next contest.
After watching his teammates pick up a victory, Smith will be in net Wednesday night looking to bounce back against the winless Edmonton Oilers, who are completing...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Saturday's 3-2, overtime win over the Los Angeles Kings was a perfect illustration of Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle's game.
He was on the ice for the first two L.A. goals as the Kings took a 2-0, first-period lead. The Yandle critics were out in force, although it's debatable whether he deserved blame on either goal.
Then with 39 seconds left in...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Coyotes goalie Devan Dubnyk has worn four NHL jerseys in the past nine months, but before Saturday's surprise start against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, he hadn't played a single NHL game since Jan. 24.
"It's been a roller coaster, mostly slowing down for the last little while for me," Dubnyk said after he backstopped...
((HT: AZCentral))Depending on who you talk to these days, either the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes are either half-way to their $50-million loss figure for the escape clause to kick in or everything is fine, the team is losing money, and they're staying anyway. Either way, this seems to be the league approach to keeping a team there when the league could be served better someplace...
From the Phoenix Coyotes:

from Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times,
Against a backdrop of 100-degree temperatures, workers last month began implementing the latest changes for a hockey team once just a lone councilman’s vote from winding up in Seattle.
They spent a sweat-filled Saturday tearing down the outdoor facade at the Jobing.com Arena to replace it with the name of the venue’s new Native...
Just when it seemed like the Arizona Coyotes were out of the woods when it came to their ownership situation, they find themselves right back in the thick of it. The nightmare was apparently over last August, when the NHL approved the sale of the franchise to Ice Arizona. There’d be no more court cases, a stable ownership situation and a new age in Arizona hockey. Or so we thought...
