Antoine Vermette scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis Monday night.

Vermette has 16 goals and 37 points in 73 games in 2015-16. That's roughly on par with what he did last season in terms of offensive production. We suspect we'll also see more of the same from the 33-year-old forward again next season.
Apr 5 - 9:02 AM

Don't look now but Antoine Vermette now has six points in three games.

Vermette picked up the proverbial dagger during Thursday's 3-1 win over the Sharks. He's also popped four goals during the streak, bringing his season totals up to 15 goals and 34 points.
Mar 18 - 1:36 AM

Antoine Vermette tallied two goals and an assist in the Coyotes’ 4-0 shutout of the Oilers on Saturday night.

It looked as if Vermette was cooked during his regular-season time with the Blackhawks last season. Then he had a solid playoffs, and the momentum carried into this season. Don’t be fooled, though. Even with five points in his past two games, Vermette still only has 14 goals and 33 points on the year. Viktor Tikhonov and Alex Tanguay got the other markers. Michael Stone had two assists.

Antoine Vermette pushed the Coyotes past the Flames during Friday's 4-1 win.

Vermette collected the would-be game winner early on in the third period, and he also assisted on the later dagger. The wily veteran is now up to 12 goals and 30 points in 62 games this season.
Mar 12 - 2:43 AM

Antoine Vermette had a goal and four points in the Coyotes 5-1 win over Florida Saturday.

Vermette played on a line with Anthony Duclair and the newly-acquired Alex Tanguay and the trio combined for nine points on a big night in Phoenix. "He started really slow to the season and then had a pretty good burst, and this last little bit has been down again," coach Dave Tippett said of Vermette. "That’s a big night. Hopefully he can carry it on." Vermette now has 11 goals and 28 points this season, far below expectations.
Mar 6 - 6:51 AM

Antoine Vermette had an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday.

Vermette has 10 goals and 24 points in 55 contests this season. His pace is less than what we had hoped for him and something that needs to be kept in mind going forward. At the age of 33, he just might not be a great bet to reach the 40-point mark over the course of a full season anymore.

Antoine Vermette picked up a veteran's helper during Friday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim.

Vermette was along the right halfwall when he sent a low wrister to Frederik Andersen's right flipper. The shot was through a Shane Doan screen, who was there to slam home the rebound for the power play goal. Just as they drew it up. Vermette now has 13 assists and 21 points this season.
Feb 6 - 1:04 AM

Antoine Vermette saved the day for the Arizona Coyotes, scoring a shorthanded goal at 18:47 of the third period in Minnesota.

The Vermette goal tied the game at 1-1 and the Coyotes went on to defeat the Wild 2-1 in a shootout. Vermette's goal was his eighth of the season. Tobias Rieder assisted. Rieder now has 20 assists on the season.
Jan 25 - 11:41 PM

Antoine Vermette potted Arizona's only goal in a 2-1 loss to Buffalo on Monday night.

He cut the Sabres' lead in half before the midway mark of the third period, but that was as close as the Coyotes would come in the contest. Vermette's seventh goal of the season was assisted by Shane Doan and Tobias Rieder.
Jan 18 - 11:53 PM

Antoine Vermette had an assist in a 3-2 win against Vancouver Monday night.

Vermette got off to a sluggish start this season, but he's heated up by scoring two goals and seven points in his last nine games. Assuming he stays healthy for the rest of the season, he's now on pace to record 36 points and that seems like a fair estimate.
Jan 5 - 4:43 AM

Antoine Vermette will play against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup with them.

Arizona traded Vermette to the Blackhawks in February to assist in Chicago's playoff run. After Chicago successfully won the championship, Vermette returned to Arizona as an unrestricted free agent. "Every time you play a team that you played for, it’s always special," Vermette said. "There’s a special twist to it, that’s for sure, even more so when you have a chance to win it all. With some of these guys, you share something with them that’s going to last long." He has five goals and 14 points in 29 games this season.

Antoine Vermette recorded another couple of points, however the Coyotes fell to the Blue Jackets 7-5 on Thursday night.

It was just another quality game by the grizzled veteran who picked up both a goal and an assist plus a hit, all while winning 53% of his draws. He only has four goals and 11 points in 25 games this season, but it's good to see him still producing.

His goal gave Arizona a 4-3 lead with just under seven minutes to go in the game, a lead the Coyotes would eventually give up. He now totals three goals and eight points in 21 games. Vermette came into the contest with no points in three straight games.
