Devan Dubnyk was unable to secure himself more playing time Tuesday night as he and the Coyotes were dumped by Nashville in a 4-3 shootout defeat.
Dubnyk was impressive in his winning performance against the Kings a week ago, but wasn't as sharp in Tuesday loss. As a result, it's very likely the team will revert back to incumbent Mike Smith for their next contest. Oct 22 - 12:06 AM

Devan Dubnyk will start in Tuesday's game against Nashville.

The Coyotes have a bit of a goalie controversy given Mike Smith's slow start to the season. Smith has a 5.33 GAA and .822 save percentage in three games. While his struggles might lead to Dubnyk getting more ice time in the short-term, Smith should get more opportunities to turn his season around before he's in any serious jeopardy of losing the starting gig. It's worth adding that Dubnyk did play for the Predators in 2013-14, but he only appeared in two games, so this isn't the biggest of reunions.

Devan Dubnyk kicked away 24 shots in the Coyotes’ 3-2 overtime win Saturday night against the Kings.

A comforting outing for Dubnyk in his Coyotes debut and for the Coyotes, who needed a better performance from their goalie after Mike Smith’s dreadful first game. Even more important, the Coyotes showed they could hang with the champions, and that should be a confidence-booster. Dubnyk is looking to bounce back from a season that saw him post a 3.43 goals-against average and .891 save percentage.

It appears as if Devan Dubnyk - not Mike Smith - will start for the Arizona Coyotes against the Los Angeles Kings.

Smith had a brutal season debut, so it's not that surprising, although his career work against the Kings has actually been quite impressive. Dubnyk is attempting to save his career after a nightmarish 2013-14 season.

Devan Dubnyk might do better now that he doesn't have to deal with the pressure of being a starter.

Dubnyk had a 3.43 GAA and .891 save percentage in 34 games last season. He started the campaign as Edmonton's number one goaltender, but fell apart. Now he's expected to spend the vast majority of the time on the bench as Mike Smith's understudy in Arizona. "You can tell he's having fun with it," goalie coach Sean Burke said. "That's what he needed to do — come into a situation where he doesn't have the pressure of the Canadian media. He's not trying to carry a team for 60 games. He can just get his game back, and I've liked what I've seen." We'll see if he can be a solid backup, but he obviously isn't likely to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Devan Dubnyk allowed three goals on 30 shots against his former club on Wednesday night.

Dubnyk was the Oilers starting goalie at the beginning of last year where he put up an unimpressive 3.36 GAA. He lasted only 32 games in Edmonton before he lost his job and ended up in Nashville later in the year. Arizona is hopeful that he can be a capable backup to starter Mike Smith this season.

Devan Dubnyk started Friday night's contest against San Jose, and gave a much improved effort. Allowing just one goal on 22 shots faced.

It helps when more of the real roster is playing in front of you this time. Either way, the backup gig is Dubnyk's to squander.

Devan Dubnyk was on the losing end of a 4-3 shootout decision against the Kings in Monday's preseason action.

Dubnyk played the entire contest and was beaten for three goals on 26 shots in the defeat. The Coyotes split-squad also received goals from Michael Stone, Justin Hodgman and Philip Lane in the preseason-openeing defeat.

Coyotes first-string goalie Mike Smith is confident new Arizona backup Devan Dubnyk will rebound next season after struggling last season with three different NHL teams.

Smith and Dubnyk were teammates with Canada's World Championship team last summer "It happened to me so why not other people?" Smith said. "He's a big guy. He moves fairly well and I think under the right guidance, I think he can definitely be a really good goaltender in this league for a long time still. . .I've been there. I know what that feels like, and I'm sure he just wants to come in and get his feet back under him and I think there's no better place to do that than Arizona."

Arizona feels they found a strong backup netminder in Devan Dubnyk.

"That's where we thought Dubnyk was ahead of the pack in terms of a guy that has faced that pressure of being a No. 1 goalie over some time," GM Don Maloney said. The Coyotes are confident that Dubnyk can get his career back on track after he struggled mightily in 2013-14. He's excited for the opportunity and perhaps a reduced role can help him get his confidence back.
Jul 3 - 1:52 PM

Devan Dubnyk has agreed to terms with the Arizona Coyotes.

Dubnyk will earn $800,000 over the course of the one-year deal. Unless the Coyotes sign another netminder, he'll be the favorite to serve as Mike Smith's understudy in 2014-15.
Jul 1 - 4:19 PM

Devan Dubnyk will be unrestricted free agent this summer.

He struggled with the Edmonton Oilers and ended up being relegated to backup duties with Nashville before he was acquired by Montreal. Dubnyk was sent to the minors by the Canadiens after the deal and has been working out with the Black Aces during the playoffs. "I'm not worried about being able to play in the NHL at all. I've played a lot of games (171)," said Dubnyk, who is trying to look on the bright side. "I have to be honest with myself. I can't be demanding a starting job, anywhere. Maybe if I could get into a 1 and 1B and have the opportunity to compete for ice time and for starts ... the most important thing is getting back into the NHL. I don't think I'd take a two-way contract. I hope that's not a decision I have to make." He'll probably have to take a job as a backup if he wants to be on an NHL squad next season.
May 5 - 5:55 PM

The Montreal Canadiens have sent Devan Dubnyk to the minors.

Well, that didn't take long. The Habs picked up Dubnyk from Nashville for future considerations earlier today and will keep Dustin Tokarski as the backup to Peter Budaj while Carey Price recovers from his lower-body injury. Dubnyk is getting half his salary paid by the Oilers and now the Predators are picking up half of the remaining contract so the Habs are only playing 25 percent against their cap.

The Montreal Canadiens acquired Devan Dubnyk from the Nashville Predators for future considerations.

The Predators will retain a portion of Dubnyk's remaining salary. Dubnyk will provide the Canadiens with some added insurance while Carey Price recovers from a lower-body injury. Dubnyk might end up getting into a game with Montreal, but we wouldn't count on him having any fantasy value going forward.
Mar 5 - 12:50 PM

Devan Dubnyk has been put on waivers by Nashville.

The Predators are getting ready to bring Pekka Rinne back into the fold and Dubnyk has appeared in just two games with Nashville since he was acquired from Edmonton. Carter Hutton seized the team's number one goalie position after Dubynk arrived. If he clears then he'll probably be assigned to the minors.
