The two sides are working on a one-year deal for the 2016-17 campaign. "We’re hopeful that we can get something done here at some point," Coyotes GM John Chayka said. "It’s one of those things you can’t rush it. You go through it, and you make sure that you get it right for both parties." Doan had 28 goals and 47 points in 72 contests in 2015-16.

Shane Doan and the Coyotes are working on a one-year contract.

The two sides did talk about the possibility of a multi-year deal, but that's not the path they're pursuing now. That's to be expected given that Doan will turn 40 on Oct. 10. "The idea is after every year, he takes the chance to discuss it with his family," Coyotes GM John Chayka said. "It’s all positive and it’s just a matter of time before we get it done."

Coyotes GM John Chayka feels it's "just a matter of time" before Shane Doan has a new contract with the team.

"It's just a matter of going through that process to reach a deal because Shane wants to be back," said Chayka. "We want him to be back, and we're going to get something done." Doan doesn't want to end his career yet after finishing a four-year, $21.2 million contract. The 39-year-old veteran produced 28 goals and 47 points in 72 games last season.

Shane Doan intends to continue playing next season.

"There's still some things that we have to get over, but at the same time I think I'm capable of doing it," said Doan, who would like to return to the Coyotes if possible. "Whether or not it all works out is another thing but I'm capable of doing it; just talking with my family and seeing if it was something that was doable as a group, it was. So from there we'll try to figure out the details of it. It if all works out it'd be great. I enjoy playing. I'm going to play when I'm done playing in the NHL. I'll just play somewhere that no one else is watching. I love the game and it's fun to play." One of the first items on new GM John Chayka's to-do list is to speak with Doan.

New Coyotes GM John Chayka plans to meet with Shane Doan.

Doan is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and the 39-year-old hasn't decided what he wants to do going forward yet. "The sense is pretty positive overall, but certainly I want to talk to him and see where he’s at," Chayka said. "We’d be excited to have him back." Doan had 28 goals and 47 points in 72 contests in 2015-16.
May 6 - 10:25 AM

Shane Doan isn't sure if he'll retire or re-sign this summer.

Doan has completed his four-year, $21.2 million contract. The Coyotes have made it clear that they'd be happy to re-sign him if he wants to extend his career, so at this point it sounds like his fate is in his hands. "My family and I will discuss it," Doan said of his future. "…My (four) kids are getting older and they’ve got important things happening in their lives. I have the opportunity to be there and I’d love to be there for some of them. I don’t want to miss too much."
Apr 13 - 6:18 PM

With the Coyotes' campaign over, Shane Doan will need to decide what his plans are for the future.

Doan is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. There's a chance he'll retire, but Coyotes GM Don Maloney thinks he'll ultimately return on a one-year contract. "Hopefully we’ll do something relatively soon," Maloney said. "We’re not expecting him to come back at the league minimum, and we’re not expecting to pay him the league maximum either. He’s played well. He deserves a decent contract, and we’re going to give him a decent contract." Doan is coming off of a four-year, $21.2 million deal.

Shane Doan picked up 19 PIMs in Saturday's season finale 1-0 loss to San Jose.

All in one fell swoop Doan got all his minutes. He fought Roman Polak, collected an instigator, an unsportsmanlike conduct, and a game misconduct. The Coyotes captain saw just 14:06 of ice time before departing. He finished the season with 28 goals and 47 points in 72 games and 98 PIMs.
Apr 10 - 3:10 AM

Shane Doan scored his 27th goal of the season in the Coyotes' loss to Nashville Thursday night.

The 39-year-old veteran has been overshadowed by Jaromir Jagr's impressive season, but Doan has proven he can still compete with players more than 20 years younger than he is. Doan has 46 points this season.
Apr 7 - 10:55 PM

Shane Doan has an idea of how to give teams something to play for after they've lost all hope of making the playoffs.

"The day you’re mathematically eliminated, you start accumulating points," Doan said. "When you get to the end of the year, whoever’s accumulated the most points gets the first overall pick." The reason why it starts when the team is eliminated is to provide the league's worst teams with an advantage. The first squad eliminated would have the most opportunities to accumulate points towards the race to the first overall pick. It's a more complicated system, but it would throw a wrench in the idea of tanking for a better selection. It would also give fans a reason to root for their team even after they're out of the playoff race.
