Mikkel Boedker can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015-16 season.
It will be interesting to see if he stays with the Coyotes after he received a one-year, $3.75 million contract in July. Right now, he says he is "open for anything." Boedker is eager to live up to his potential after an injury-plagued 2014-15 campaign. He missed the last 37 games of the year because he had his spleen removed. "It obviously puts a lot of pressure on me this season but I think it's their turn to show what I mean to the team," said Boedker. "In some ways, it will be interesting to see, but I have to perform on the ice. It doesn't help if I'm just another guy on the ice. You have to prove that you are something important for the team. I'm hoping to come back stronger than ever and make an impact." Aug 20 - 5:16 PM

Mikkel Boedker has inked a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Boedker filed for salary arbitration, but that's obviously moot now. He had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 contests in 2014-15. He was a restricted free agent and previously came with a $2.55 million annual cap hit.

Mikkel Boedker's agent, Jarrett Bousquet, confirmed that his client will file for salary arbitration.

Boedker and the Coyotes have been working on a new contract for about three months, but they have been unable to come to terms just yet. "When two sides can't agree on something, there is a certain date by which you have to have a contract finished before you weigh other options," Bousquet said. "There have been a lot of changes in the Coyotes organization and this gives both sides some freedom to wait a little longer while we figure things out. We can still talk, but at this point we're looking to see if we can get a one-year deal done to avoid letting the system take care of it." The 25-year-old had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games with Arizona last season.
Jul 5 - 2:34 PM

The Arizona Coyotes and Mikkel Boedker met at the draft to discuss a new contract.

Boedker will become a restricted free agent on July 1 and it looks like both sides are trying to get a deal done. Boedker had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games until his season ended in January with surgery to remove his spleen. Boedker can become a UFA after next season if he inks a one-year contract during this off-season. He is expected to be 100 percent for training camp in September. Look for a 50-55 point season from Boedker.

Contract talks between the Coyotes and Mikkel Boedker are still ongoing.

"Hopefully we'll get that done in relatively short order because he's important to us," GM Don Maloney said. "He's a key guy for us." The negotiations have been "moving forward," which is good news for the Coyotes. Boedker, who becomes a restricted free agent in July, notched 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games this past season. In 2013-14, he tallied 19 goals and 51 points in 82 contests. He is only one season shy of potentially becoming an unrestricted free agent, so it's expected that he'll get a long-term deal.
Jun 11 - 6:01 PM

Mikkel Boedker's agent has been negotiating with Coyotes GM Don Maloney about a contract extension.

Boedker is set to become a restricted free agent after completing his two-year, $5.1 million deal. The negotiations have been described as positive, but slow, so a signing probably isn't imminent.

Mikkel Boedker was making great strides in his recovery from a removed spleen towards the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Boedker had become to skate without limitations and had regained 15 of the 20 pounds he lost following the surgery. He had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 contests in 2014-15. He's could be in line for a great season if he's ready by the start of training camp. The Arizona Coyotes need to re-sign the restricted free agent first though.
Apr 23 - 9:46 AM

Mikkel Boedker skated for the first time on Monday since having surgery to remove his spleen.

He was on the ice for about 15 minutes. Boedker hasn't played since Jan. 18 and he's not expected to play again this season. He had 14 goals and 14 assists in 45 games.
Mar 30 - 3:26 PM

The Arizona Coyotes and Mikkel Boedker should start hammering out a new deal in the not too distant future.

This is the final year of Boedker's contract and he is eligible to become a restricted free agent starting on July 1. He will not return this season to the ice as he underwent surgery to remove his spleen in mid-January, but he has been one of the few bright spots up front for Arizona the last couple of seasons. "He likes it there," said Jarrett Bousquet, Boedker's agent. "He's excited about what the team is doing and the direction and ... he's excited, and it's just a matter of nailing down a contract that works for both sides." Boedker should be able to ramp things up in the summer and be ready for the start of training camp. He is worth a late round pickup next season as most poolies will not notice him because of his injury plagued 2014-15 season.
Mar 8 - 7:14 AM

Mikkel Boedker has officially been ruled out for the rest of the regular season.

Boedker is suffering from an upper-body injury and has been out of the lineup since January 20th. The 25-year-old will finish the season with 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games this season.
Mar 1 - 6:31 PM

Mikkel Boedker and Connor Murphy have been talking about the recovery from surgery to remove a spleen.

Boedker underwent the surgery three weeks ago while Murphy had similar surgery as a teenager. Boedker is still at least a few weeks away from returning to action (it could be the remainder of the season) and has lost 20 pounds thus far, but thinks he'll regain the weight in the off-season. Boedker had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games before the surgery. Keep an eye on him next season, especially if he is unable to return in 2015.
Feb 8 - 7:45 AM

GM Don Maloney is looking to start contract negotiations with Mikkel Boedker shortly.

Boedker will become a restricted free agent at the end of the season if he is not signed. He is currently out of action as he had his spleen removed before the All-Star break but has been the Coyotes top goal scorer this season with 14 goals. He has 28 points in 45 games this season and would be a valuable commodity if he was traded or another team saw fit to offer him a contract.
Jan 31 - 6:43 AM

Mikkel Boedker (spleen) has been allowed to travel to Glendale.

Boedker will meet up with his teammates when they return home from their current road trip following their game on Feb. 3. He's not ready to resume skating yet, but he might be back in the lineup in around three-to-five weeks.
Jan 29 - 8:48 AM

Mikkel Boedker had successful surgery Sunday to remove his injured spleen.

Arizona GM Don Maloney said that Boedker may return from Winnipeg, where the procedure took place, in two-to-three days. Boedker is expected to need four-to-six week to recover. He is on the Coyotes' injured reserve list.
Jan 20 - 2:03 PM

Mikkel Boedker (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Boedker is regarded as week-to-week so this move isn't surprising. The timing of his injury is particularly unfortunate given how hot he was recently. He went on a four-game goal scoring streak from Jan. 8-15. When he misses Tuesday's contest, it will bring his streak of 257 consecutive games played to an end.
