Coyotes CEO Anthony LeBlanc and president of hockey operations Gary Drummond have stepped down from their posts.
Meanwhile Ahron Cohen, who had been serving as the team's general counsel is now also the Coyotes' new COO. The team is searching for a new CEO, but until then GM John Chayka and Cohen will be reporting directly to Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway. The team doesn't intend to hire a new president of hockey operations though. "For years, Anthony has been the front office face of our franchise, and we sincerely appreciate all of his hard work and commitment to the Club," said Barroway. "Anthony and Gary deserve a lot of credit for stabilizing the franchise. They did great things for hockey in Arizona and helped grow the game in the Valley. They have the lasting gratitude of every Coyotes fan and I want to wish them both the best of luck in the future." Jun 16 - 4:31 PM

The Arizona Coyotes will play an exhibition game in Tucson on Sept. 25.

Tucson, Arizona is the home of the Coyotes' AHL affiliates, the Roadrunners. Arizona's opponent for the preseason game will be the Anaheim Ducks. In total, Arizona has seven preseason games scheduled for 2017.

The Arizona Coyotes have added Jake Goldberg to their hockey operations department.

Goldberg spent the last three seasons working for the London Knights of the OHL, most recently as Assistant General Manager and Director of Analytics. The hiring of John Chayka as General Manager of the Coyotes was a push towards a more analytically driven team, and the latest hiring of Goldberg continues this movement.

The Arizona Coyotes have fired assistant coach Newell Brown and AHL Tucson GM Doug Soetaert.

In addition to that, pro scouts David MacLean and Jim Roque didn't have their contracts renewed. The Coyotes are making these organizational changes after failing to make the playoffs for a fifth straight campaign.

The Coyotes had a tremendously balanced attack against the Capitals Friday night.

In the team's 6-3 win, each line contributed at least one goal and seven different Coyote players registered at least one point. Against a powerhouse like the Capitals, that bodes well for the future of a very young Arizona squad.

The Arizona Coyotes and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman are saying the team will relocate if the State Legislator doesn't approve $225 million in public financing to build a new arena.

The Coyotes want to have an arena in Phoenix or the East Valley rather than their present home in Glendale. "The Arizona Coyotes must have a new arena location to succeed," Bettman said in a letter to the state Senate. "The Coyotes cannot and will not remain in Glendale." Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway said that the team has been losing tens of millions of dollars while in Gila River Arena, which isn't surprising given their troubled history. Due to contractual obligations, the Coyotes are expected to remain in Glendale for the 2017-18 season, but they can move after that.

Arizona Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc have gone on the record about whether or not the team with be leaving Arizona following their arena deal with Arizona State University falling through.

"There is absolutely no facts whatsoever in that story," Leblanc said. The story being that team officials had visited Seattle's KeyBank Arena and Portland's Moda Center as foreshadowing for a big move. At this point it's best to wait until the ink dries to take any report about the Coyotes' home seriously.

The Arizona Coyote's plan to move to Tempe, AZ has been iced as Arizona State University has pulled out of the plan.

On Friday, ASU stated clearly that the University "has no intention of proceeding to sign a development agreement or an option to lease or any other agreement with the Coyotes." Thus kills the master plan to build a state-of-the-art 330-acre athletic district south of Tempe Town Lake, which included a new home for the Coyotes. The journey for a permanent home continues.

GM John Chayka believes that the Arizona Coyotes are on the right track.

Chayka became the GM in the off-season at the tender age of 27 and made trades and free agent pickups trying to change the atmosphere of the dressing room to one that expects to win. While the results have been poor to date as Arizona is 29th in the league and 12 points behind the 28th place New Jersey Devils, Chayka is convinced the Coyotes are progressing. "Everyone wants to be in the playoffs and have some success," Chayka said. "Teams that fans enjoy and get involved in emotionally, go out and watch games, buy tickets, buy season tickets, get involved, are the teams that have sustained success, that build up, have a good run, have a chance to win a Stanley Cup, go through some long playoff runs, and we’re at the very beginning of that process." The Coyotes are on their first three game winning streak of the season so perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
Jan 30 - 8:14 AM

Including Tuesday's loss, Arizona has gone 3-9-3 in its last 15 games.

The Coyotes haven't been much of a threat offensively over that span as they scored just 27 goals. Arizona seemed to take a step forward in 2015-16 when they finished with a 35-39-8 record, but the young squad has been enduring more growing pains. The silver lining is that at this rate the Coyotes are going to get another great pick to bolster their rebuilding efforts. They currently rank 29th in the league with 27 points in 35 games, which is four points worse than the 28th place Vancouver Canucks.

The Arizona Coyotes have oddly found more success when their opponents get a lot of shots on goal.

Arizona has a 2-7-1 record when they've allowed 30 or fewer shots, but the Coyotes are 7-3-4 when they've faced at least 35 shots. "Every shot counts," coach Dave Tippett said. "Every shot. Every shot that goes on net, it can come from the other end and if it’s on net, it has a chance to go in. But is it a shot that I’m going to coach against when a guy shoots it down the ice? I don’t know if we have defense for that one." Tippett instead prefers to focus on whether or not the Coyotes are executing in a larger sense. For example, he wasn't happy with the Coyotes' performance on special teams against Calgary in their 4-2 loss to the Flames Monday night. Arizona will play Edmonton next, so we'll have to see if either of the Coyotes' odd shot trends continue.

The Arizona Coyotes are 20-0-4 in their last 24 games against Edmonton.

Wow!!! That includes a 3-2 shootout win on Friday as both squads get right back at it in the back-half of a home-and-home series against the Oilers Sunday. It would be a little more understandable if the Coyotes were the 1976-79 Canadiens but they certainly are not. We shall see if the streak continues tonight.

The Arizona Coyotes are off to the worst start in their franchise's history.

Arizona fell to 1-5-0 with a 5-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. "You’re learning about your team," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "But there’s lessons that are preventable, and that’s the thing that’s bothersome right now." Arizona does have a lot of young talent on its team and on top of that its missing starting goaltender Mike Smith. Arizona's prospects past the 2016-17 still look good, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Coyotes finish this season closer to the first overall pick than the playoffs.

Coyotes coach Dave Tippett sees the silver lining in Arizona's upcoming stint of six road games in 10 games.

It will kick off in Ottawa on Tuesday. "I think it’s phenomenal," Tippett said. "I think it’s great for our team to get on the road. Great test, and we’ll see what we’re made of early – especially with as many young guys as we got. It's throw them right in the fire. We’ll get a good read on our group." The Coyotes have only played one game so far, which was a 4-3 overtime win against Philadelphia.

The Arizona Coyotes cut their roster by 17 players on Sunday.

A few have been mentioned already but here's the rest: Adin Hill, Marek Langhamer, Justin Hache, Kyle Wood, Dysin Mayo, Eric Selleck, Conor Garland, Craig Cunningham, Tyler Gaudet, Brendan Perlini, and Michael Bunting have each been assigned to AHL Tuscon. With the Coyotes still in the midst of a rebuild, suffice it to say that if any of these players prove they're ready with the Roadrunners, they'll be up with the Coyotes quickly.
