Coyotes coach Dave Tippett is hoping that the hot Mikkel Boedker can be consistent this season.
Boedker has started the season on a three-game point streak, scoring five goals and six points in that span. "He's had great stretches the last couple years and then gone quiet for a while," Tippett said. "His challenge is to keep his game – and I'm not just talking about goals and points – I'm talking about his competitive nature, like being a factor in the game and if he can continue to do that night-in, night-out, he's going to be a very good player for us." It's worth noting that Boedker is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, so a breakout campaign would benefit him immensely. Oct 16 - 7:43 AM

Mikkel Boedker recorded his first career hat-trick and added an assist in Arizona's 7-4 beat-down of Edmonton on Wednesday night.

Boedker iced the game with an empty netter in a massive four point outing where he was also a plus three with four hits. Boedker now has five goals, tied with Wayne Simmonds for second in the NHL at the end of Wednesday night's action. Boedker is a restricted free-agent next season so he has plenty of incentive to have a big year coming off last year's breakout season.

The Arizona Coyotes are counting on Mikkel Boedker to live up to his 2013-14 breakout performance.

Boedker had 19 goals and 51 points in 82 games last season. "As he continues to emerge or grow as a player, more opportunity comes his way and with more opportunity, we're hoping for more results," coach Dave Tippett said. "His skill set is excellent. I think he's just had to continue to mature into a good NHL player, and that's what you're seeing right now. He's going to be a valuable player on our team." We agree that he's a valuable player for Arizona, but we think his upside might be stunted given the lack of top-tier skilled forwards for him to play with. All the same, he might approach the 60-point mark this season.

Mikkel Boedker picked up two assists in Denmark's 4-1 World Hockey Championship win over Italy.

Mikkel Boedker is in line for a big contract if he can replicate his recent success.

Boedker took a step forward in the 2013 campaign, recording 26 points in 48 games, but the Coyotes didn't want to ink him to a long-term contract in the summer of 2013. Instead, the restricted free agent ended up with a two-year, $5.1 million contract. However, Boedker moved himself closer to a big contract by scoring 19 goals and 51 points in 82 games in 2013-14. "He took real positive steps," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "There's still steps for him to grow — his board work, his 200-foot game — there's areas of growth there. But he's gone from being a young player, a player who wasn't sure if he could do it, to a player who knows he can do it now, and he (has) good skill, committed, good teammate, all the things you like in a player."

Fantasy players may wish to pay attention to the Phoenix Coyotes' Mikkel Boedker.

His coach certainly is. Boedker scored his first two goals on home ice during Phoenix's 6-3 win on Thursday and Coyotes coach Dave Tippett thinks there be many more to come from the rigt winger. Boedker already has three goals and six points this month after a quiet November in which he had only six points. The jump in production could be attributed to more shots, a directive issued to Boedker by the coaching staff. "If he can get time and space to shoot it, he’s a dangerous player," Tippett said. A switch in position also has helped. "He’s our leading scorer five-on-five," Tippett said. "He’s around a lot of the play. He’s quietly chipping in some points. I think the move from left wing to right wing has been good for him. It just seems like he’s more comfortable over there and has the ability to do more things with the puck."
