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. Oct 18 - 4:29 AM

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.

Braid became the first full-time female assistant coach in NHL history on Wednesday afternoon. "I'm very excited about this opportunity with the Coyotes," Braid said. "I'm looking forward to working with Dave Tippett and his coaching staff and all the great players in the organization. "It’s something that I’ve wanted to see happen. The fact that they respect what I do enough to name me as a full-time coach, or to name me as the first female coach in the NHL, I take a ton of pride in that. I’ve worked very hard for this opportunity. It’s been going on for years and I just look forward to going even further with it."

He is well-respected throughout the league and we are confident that he is an ideal fit for our team."

Arizona has picks No. 7 and No. 20 in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

"If we do stay at seven and 20, then we'll get good players," GM John Chayka said. "If we make a decision to move, then we'll get good players that way, as well." He stated that the Coyotes received a "pretty impressive offer" last Wednesday to move down, but they also have been linked to rumors suggesting they could try to move up. Armed with two first rounders and two second rounders, Arizona could be interesting to watch this weekend.

The Arizona Coyotes' new AHL affiliate in Tucson have been named the Roadrunners.

The Coyotes had a contest to name the team and CEO Anthony LeBlanc said the Roadrunners were the overwhelming favorites. They're not the first Arizona team to use the name. In fact the first professional hockey team in Arizona was the Phoenix Roadrunners of the Western Hockey League.

The Arizona Coyotes' front office shakeup continued Thursday with Steve Sullivan being promoted to director of player development.

"Steve has done an excellent job monitoring and developing our top prospects the past two seasons," said Coyotes GM John Chayka. "We are pleased with his work and he is very deserving of this promotion." Sullivan also agreed to a multi-year contract extension. At the same time, the Coyotes announced that assistant coach Newell Brown has been re-signed.

Ari Segal has been hired as the Coyotes' new chief operating officer.

Segal was previously the president of business operations for AHL San Diego, which is the AHL-affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks. The Gulls ranked second in attendance in 2015-16. This is the latest in a series of front office changes for Arizona. Most notable among them was the appointment of John Chayka to the role of general manager.

The Tucson City Council has unanimously approved a lease agreement for the Tucson Convention Center, opening the door for the Coyotes' AHL affiliate to move there.

Arizona has been hoping to place its AHL team in Tucson for the 2016-17 so that the Coyotes would be in closer proximity to their farm team. "Tucson is obviously the second largest market here in Arizona," Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc said. "It's one that's a short two-hour drive from our NHL facility in Glendale. But most importantly, it's a market that we've been looking at since we bought the team three years ago. We've looked at the amount of hockey in this area. We've also looked at the number of people in the area that are buying Coyotes tickets and driving two hours, and it's tens of thousands of people every year. So we knew this was a market that can support hockey. So we're just beyond thrilled to finally get this approved." The team the Coyotes are moving are the Springfield Falcons, which they recently bought in order to accommodate this relocation.

The Arizona Coyotes have made it clear that they will be leaving the City of Glendale.

"Simply put, the Arizona Coyotes have every intention of leaving Glendale as soon as practicable," Coyotes president Anthony LeBlanc said. "For our business to continue to rely on the whims of a majority of seven elected Council members would be irresponsible of me to the point of risking financial ruin and the alienation of our most important assets — Arizona Coyotes fans and our sponsors." It appears very likely that the Coyotes will end up in Phoenix. The Coyotes expect to make an announcement prior to the 2016 draft on June 24.
May 13 - 1:06 PM

Coyotes GM John Chayka has identified the team's defense as an area that needs improvement.

"We have some really good fundamental pieces," Chayka said. "I think as you look at teams that are still playing today, that’s an area we can be better. It’s going to be a focus for us." That's not a surprising assessment, especially when you consider that Arizona has a lot of promising forwards that have either started their rise in the NHL, like Max Domi, or might establish themselves in the NHL soon, like Dylan Strome. Arizona isn't devoid of defensive prospects, but their prospect pool certainly looks far more encouraging in terms of forwards.
May 11 - 9:56 AM

The Arizona Coyotes are interested in hiring an experienced assistant general manager.

Such a person could help John Chayka, who has been named Arizona's GM at the age of 26. Stars assistant GM Les Jackson would have likely been a good fit for that role and Arizona did reach out to him, but the Coyotes' window to negotiate with him closed without a deal being agreed to.
