Antoine Vermette gave the Coyotes an early lead over the Predators on Thursday night, but it was short lived in the 5-1 loss.
While on the power play, Vermette one-timed a sweet Mikkel Boedker feed to give Arizona the 1-0 lead just 4:11 into the game. That would be all positives they'd be able to take from the game as Nashville ended the first period up 3-1. Vermette won half his faceoffs and had six shots over his 18:51 of ice time.

Antoine Vermette is one of the top remaining players scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Vermette is set to get a substantial raise over his current average annual salary of $3.75 million. The Coyotes have been leaning on him in all situations this season and he's consequently logged 19:46 minutes per game. "He's a good two-way player," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "Players like that, that play penalty kill, take key faceoffs in your own zone, play against the other team's top players; they're just good two-way players." He also has six goals and 16 points in 22 contests.
Nov 27 - 8:12 AM

Antoine Vermette had a goal and an assist in Arizona's 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado.

Vermette now has six goals and 16 points in 23 games this season. He's been fairly consistent so far in 2014-15 as he hasn't been held off the scoresheet for more than two consecutive games.
Nov 26 - 8:08 AM

Antoine Vermette had a goal and an assist in Arizona's 5-3 loss to Calgary on Thursday.

Vermette has three goals and seven points in seven contests this month. That's brought him up to 12 points in 16 games in 2014-15.
Nov 14 - 10:14 AM

Antoine Vermette registered an assist in a 3-2 shootout win against Anaheim Friday night.

Vermette is riding a three-game point streak. He has three goals and 10 points in 13 contests in 2014-15. He's not likely to maintain that pace, but he is a solid bet to surpass his 2013-14 mark of 45 points.
Nov 8 - 9:39 AM

Antoine Vermette was credited with the game-winning-goal as Arizona held on to win 3-2 over Toronto on Tuesday.

Vermette followed up a three point performance on Sunday with the game winning on this night. The slick two way forward logged just over 21 minutes of ice-time on the night as well. Vermette is officially heating up in desert and owns a solid three goals and five assists in 12 games now. Martin Erat and Sam Gagner each contributed first period goals in the win.
Nov 5 - 1:32 AM

Antoine Vermette had a goal and two assists in Arizona's 6-5 win over Washington on Sunday.

Vermette registered a point in each period tonight. The 32-year-old now has two goals and eight points in 11 games this season. He averages over 19:00 of ice-time, so he should be able to produce 40-50 points this season if he stays healthy.
Nov 2 - 10:17 PM

Antoine Vermette is an 'Iron Man' of sorts as he played in his 400th consecutive game on Saturday.

Vermette was the Coyotes best forward last season and the center is off to a bit of a slow start in 2014-15 with only one goal and three assists in seven games. He is minus-three over the last three games but look for Vermette to start turning things around shortly.
Oct 26 - 7:03 AM

Antoine Vermette is considered the Arizona Coyotes top center heading into the season.

Vermette had a good season in 2013-14 as he potted 24 goals and 45 points. The Coyotes brought in Sam Gagner and still have Martin Hanzal down the middle but coach Dave Tippett really likes Vermette. "He's going to be a solid player this year," Tippett said. "That's who he is — a solid player. He could be a 20-goal scorer and still have a good season, or he could be at 25 goals and have a good season, too. He does so many things other than score goals. It's wrong to assess him strictly on goal scoring." The Coyotes would like to extend Vermette's contract as he can become a UFA at the end of the season and negotiations are still ongoing. Look for a 20-25 goal and 50 point season from Vermette in 2014-15.
Sep 21 - 6:01 AM

The Arizona Coyotes would like to ink Antoine Vermette to an extension.

The value of top-two centers has gone up though and Vermette would be in for a big payday if he simply becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2015. The Coyotes might still be able to keep him, but he'll probably demand a substantial upgrade over his current five-year, $18.75 million deal.
Jul 23 - 10:03 AM

Antoine Vermette scored a team high 24 goals in 2013-14.

Vermette was originally slotted to be the third line center for the Coyotes at the start of the season but his scoring and ability at the face off dot changed all of that. "I'm pleased with the way I played," Vermette said. "I think if you look at the statistics, sometimes it doesn't show. It shows a little bit but not as much as you might think. I try to grow my game, different areas of the game. It was a successful year for me, but it's a bad taste. You want to do it and win and ultimately, you want to be successful as a team." Vermette also led all forwards playing an average of 19:21 minutes per game.
Apr 20 - 9:41 AM

Antoine Vermette had an assist in a 2-1 shootout defeat to Winnipeg.

With that, Vermette has reached the 45 point mark with six games remaining. He also has 24 goals, giving him an outside chance of reaching his career-high of 27 markers set in 2009-10.
Apr 2 - 9:54 AM

Antoine Vermette scored the game-winning goal in the Coyotes' 2-1 win on Thursday.

It was Vermette's fourth game-winning goal in 2013-14 and the 25th of his career. He now has 23 goals and 43 points in 70 games this season, which is nothing exciting by fantasy standards, but is more-or-less in line with his preseason expectations.
Mar 21 - 10:20 AM

Antoine Vermette had an assist in the Coyotes' 3-1 win on Tuesday.

That puts Vermette on a three-game point streak. He has 22 goals and 41 points in 66 contests this season.

Antoine Vermette scored his sixth goal in five games against the Canucks this season late in the first period, and it stood up to give the Phoenix Coyotes a 1-0 win at Arena Tuesday.
