The Arizona Coyotes are on the verge of their longest losing streak in 20 seasons after picking up where they left off before the break.
They aren't likely to get much sympathy from the offensively challenged Toronto Maple Leafs, who are mired in a lengthy skid of their own.

The Flyers entered Tuesday night looking to build off their previous victory against the Penguins, six days ago. The All-Star break gave most Flyers a much needed rest while Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek saw themselves in Ohio to take part in the all-star festivities.
Tonight the Arizona Coyotes face the Philadelphia Flyers to kick off the second half of the season. Both teams will be well rested because they had the last couple of days off due to the all-star break. The Coyotes had success against Philly back in December when they beat them 4-2. 1st time all star Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a very good weekend as he scored two goals during the skills...
The Arizona Coyotes are a team in need of playmaking forwards and they have one prospect who should deliver that skill set for many years to come.
He is Max Domi of the London Knights, and on Friday night, the 19-year-old center scored one of the best hockey goals in any league in 2015.
Domi was on a breakaway and the Sarnia Sting goaltender came out to play the puck, but he was...
Arizona Coyotes prospect and London Knights forward Max Domi showed off his fantastic hand-eye coordination on this shorthanded goal. Rather than try to dangle around the Sarnia Sting goalie, he just flipped the puck in the air and deflected the puck into the net. [Next Impulse Sports]

Max Domi is considered one of the top prospects in hockey and, on Friday night, he gave us another spectacular highlight to remind us why. The Phoenix Coyotes prospect – drafted with the 12th overall pick in last year’s draft – scored an absolute beauty while playing for the London Knights in OHL action, and

Per Bob McKenzie on NHLN’s NHL Live yesterday (via Nichols on Hockey), the New York Rangers may have interest in Phoenix Arizona Coyotes center Antoine Vermette. Vermette is one of the few offensive bright spots on the ‘Yotes, but the 32 year old center is also a pending UFA primed to get a decent pay raise

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Forgive Devan Dubnyk if he was feeling a bit of confusion Saturday night.
The Minnesota Wild's new goaltender was set to make his first home start for his new team, but he's living out of a hotel room. In the same hotel was his former team, the Arizona Coyotes, and the players he'd be facing later that night.
In some ways, Dubnyk was thankful the experience wasn...
Do you miss the old days when the Phoenix Coyotes (now the Arizona Coyotes) wore crazy uniforms that had a Coyote holding a hockey stick surrounded by a ton of colors and designs? Of course you do. Who doesn’t?
Rejoice, original Coyotes fans. The team will return to their roots on March 5th and bring back the iconic (for better or worse) uniform they wore when they first entered...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes' roster overhaul has begun in earnest. Arizona shipped backup goalie Devan Dubnyk to Minnesota on Wednesday for a third-round draft pick in 2015.
Dubnyk will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He signed a one-year, $800,000 deal in the offseason, so the move made sense for the Coyotes. He wasn't going to be back anyway and the Coyotes...
While they’ve managed to demonstrate a bit of competence lately, going (technically) over .500 in their last ten games, the Arizona Coyotes have had a rough go of things this season. With the calendar having just turned over to 2015, don’t expect those struggles to come to an end anytime soon. In fact, as the weeks begin to wear on, the news coming out of the desert could relate...

Domi approached the decision made my Team Canada’s management and coaching staff in stride as made evident by comments prior to roster selections in the summer.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Finding a home for Sam Gagner has been one of the biggest challenges Coyotes coach Dave Tippett has faced this season. In training camp and early in the year, Tippett tried Gagner at center, where Gagner had played in Edmonton and where he admitted he felt most comfortable.
As the season approaches its midpoint, however, Tippett has come to the conclusion that...
The Arizona Coyotes are slipping further and further out of the playoff picture and that has fans and analysts wondering what the club will do when it comes to rebuilding for the future. One of the names you’ve probably seen discussed is Antoine Vermette and it’s appearing more likely that he’ll be dealt in the near future.

The Phoenix NHL Arizona Coyotes are not making the playoffs this year. That much is all but guaranteed. What waits to be seen is when they start shipping off players that are not in their future plans, and who they ship out. Rob Klinkhammer was already sent to Pittsburgh for prospect Philip Samuelsson.

Arizona Coyotes rookie Tobias Rieder earned his place in franchise history Monday night.
The forward became the first rookie and second player in Coyotes history to score two shorthanded goals in one game. But Rieder’s feat is made even more impressive by the fact that his tallies against the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night came on the same penalty kill.
