The Coyotes may not ink Martin Hanzal to an extension before the start of the season.

"If there was something that made sense, we would probably take a closer look at that because Marty's been a good player for us," GM John Chayka said Thursday. "But maybe it's not a bad thing to get into the season and see how things play out." Former GM Don Maloney said he wanted to sign Hanzal to a contract extension before the upcoming campaign, but Chayka appears to be keeping his options open. Hanzal has had issues with injuries and his 30th birthday will come in February. The Coyotes will have prospects Dylan Strome, Christian Dvorak, Ryan MacInnis, Laurent Dauphin and Tyler Gaudet looking to make an impact. Hanzal can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Coyotes GM John Chayka spoke with Martin Hanzal's representatives last week.

"I talked to his representatives about his no-trade list but that's going to be our standard procedure going forward," Chayka said. "I don't want it to be seen as a leverage point or a bargaining chip. It's just to say, 'let's get it out in the open so we all know our options.' I wouldn't have been there if I wasn't willing to sign Marty to an extension. When he's playing well, he's one of our most, if not the most impactful forward." Hanzal has a modified no-trade clause and he's in the last year of his contract, so his name has surfaced in trade rumors.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, teams are asking the Arizona Coyotes about the availability of Martin Hanzal.

"Some teams have asked about [Hanzal]," said Friedman on his "Headlines" segment. "They're going to talk about a contract extension but they've also asked to find out his list of teams he would be willing to go to." The 29-year-old has one year remaining on his contract before he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The 6'6, 226 pounder had 13 goals and 41 points in 64 games in 2015-16.

Although Martin Hanzal was far from injury free in 2015-16, he didn't deal with any back issues following his 2015 surgery.

"I had some small injuries. With my style of game I play, it’s normal," Hanzal said. "But obviously, you want to stay healthy and play as many games as you can." Hanzal was limited to 64 games in 2015-16. While the fact that his back problems seem to be behind him is a nice silver lining, one can't help but wonder what might have been had Hanzal stayed healthy in 2015-16. As it is, he had 13 goals and a career-high 41 points.
