Mikkel Boedker played in his 400th career game Saturday.

It was not a great game for the former first round pick as he was a minus-three in a 5-2 loss to Columbus. Boedker should be owned in most formats of fantasy hockey as he has five goals and 12 points in 17 games this season.

Mikkel Boedker scored on a breakaway in overtime to win the game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Boedker picked up an errant drop pass by Duck's captain Ryan Getzlaf, skated in all alone, and deked goalie Frederik Andersen to score the game winner in overtime on Monday night. Boedker finished with a goal and an assist in the contest, having assisted on Max Domi's first of two goals in the game, in the Coyotes 4-3 win. Boedker has five points in his last five games (one goal, four assists) giving him twelve points (five goals and seven assists) on the season in fourteen games. All of his goals have been scored at even strength.

Mikkel Boedker stayed hot with two more assists in Thursday's 4-2 win over Colorado.

Boedker now has points in four of his last five games totaling three goals and eight points. He has just four goals and 10 points on the season, though. He seems well on his way for setting new career highs in each category.

Mikkel Boedker netted a hat trick in the Coyotes’ 4-1 win against the Senators on Saturday night.

He scored the final goal with the net empty, but fantasy owners won’t care how he got it done. Boedker now has four goals and five points in eight games. His 2014-15 season was cut short, but there is a sneaky 20-goal, 50-point player here. Brad Richardson scored the other goal.

Mikkel Boedker scored a goal in a 3-2 overtime loss to New Jersey Tuesday night.

That gives Boedker a goal and two points in six games this season. If he can stay healthy, he might be able to record 45-55 points in 2015-16.

Mikkel Boedker has plenty of motivation going into this season.

Boedker signed a one-year, $3.75 million contract for the 2014-15 campaign and can become an unrestricted free agent for the first time this summer. How much he makes in his next deal will be influenced by his performance this season, especially after being limited to 45 games in 2014-15. "I want to help this team in the right direction, and I want to help myself in the right direction so those things go together," Boedker said. "Obviously with a contract year coming up again, it puts extra pressure on you and you want to improve and you want to prove that you’re worthy of your next contract. So it’s an important year for me and for this team, and I’ll do anything I can do to help us out."

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."

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.
Jul 7 - 1:32 PM

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.
Jun 28 - 6:38 AM

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.

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.
