Max Domi, taken with the 12th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Arizona Coyotes, looked good at the team's developmental camp in recent days.

The Coyotes are counting on big things in the not-too-distant future from the son of former NHLer Tie Domi. Max had 34 goals and 93 points in 61 OHL games for the London Knights in 2013-14. Domi was passed over for last year's squad that Canada took to the World Junior Championship but is back in the mix for a roster spot this year. "It's exciting," he said. "Anytime you get a chance to represent your country, it's pretty special and something every Canadian kid dreams of is playing in that World Junior tournament."

Winger Anton Karlsson, a 6-foot, 192-pound Swede drafted by the Arizona Coyotes in the third round of the recent NHL Entry Draft, watched countryman Mats Sundin star in the NHL a lot when he was a kid.

But Karlsson plays nothing like Sundin. He's a physical winger, not a finesse player as Sundin was. "I watched Mats Sundin, and he's not that player. So maybe I just have it in me," Karlsson said about his aggressive style at the recent Coyotes' developmental camp.

David Moss has agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Moss reportedly signed a two-year deal with a Swiss club, but it came with an out-clause if he could find an NHL suitor within a week of signing the contract. That's exactly what happened as he'll get to spend a third straight season with Arizona.

Brandon McMillan's new deal will be a two-way contract, according to Coyotes GM Don Maloney.

"It's just a little quibbling over how much we have to pay him in the minor league, so we expect that to get resolved," Maloney said. If not, they have an arbitration date set for July 29.

David Moss has reportedly signed a two-year deal with a Swiss club.

Moss still has a one-week window of opportunity to sign with an NHL team though, so nothing's for sure yet. He had eight goals and 22 points in 79 games with the Arizona Coyotes last season.

Max Domi is trying not to read into the growing belief that he will make the Coyotes' opening game roster.

"I just try to come to the rink and play hockey and have fun and usually let the rest take care of itself, and everything else is just a distraction," Domi said. Arizona doesn't have much in the way of skilled forwards, so they could certainly use Domi's talents. He had 34 goals, 93 points, and 90 penalty minutes in 61 OHL games in 2013-14.

Joe Vitale was pleased to get a three-year contract worth $3.35 million from the Coyotes for some increased stability, but he won't take it for granted.

"You can't get away from things," he said. "Things happen quick, and you have to be on your toes. If Pittsburgh taught me anything, it's about show up every day, show up every year with a job to lose. So you just gotta prepare accordingly. So with three years, my approach isn't going to be to sit back and relax. I'll continue to bring that not satisfied mentality throughout the three years." In 53 games with Pittsburgh last season, Vitale scored one goal and had 13 assists. He also added 89 hits and won 62.5 percent of his faceoffs.

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."

B.J. Crombeen was with the Dallas Stars from 2007-2009 when current Arizona bench boss Dave Tippett coached there.

"Going in knowing what the coach is looking for from you and from the team as a whole is obviously a nice thing to have on your side, and also having the coach know what you can bring to the team and what you can bring on a day-to-day basis is also a nice thing," Crombeen said. "So obviously it's up to me to go out and do my part and play my game and try to help the team. But it's obviously a nice thing to make you a little more comfortable coming into a new situation." He had 10 points and 79 penalty minutes in 55 games with Tampa Bay last season. He can also kill penalties and could serve as a solid energy player for the Coyotes.

Darcy Regier has joined the Arizona Coyotes on a multi-year contract to serve as the team's Senior Vice President and Assistant General Manager.

"We are very pleased Darcy has decided to join us in Arizona," said GM Don Maloney. "Darcy adds intelligence and experience to our management team. The wealth of knowledge he has garnered as a long time General Manager in the National Hockey League is invaluable to us. He is a great addition to our staff." He was the GM of the Buffalo Sabres for the last 17 years.

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

Sam Gagner is motivated to "prove some people wrong next season" as a member of the Coyotes.

He has seven NHL seasons under his belt and he's set to turn just 25 years old next month. Gagner recorded 49 points in his rookie campaign, but he hasn't been able to surpass that mark ever since. He should get plenty of opportunities to succeed in Arizona and the change of scenary could finally translate into a breakout season.
Jul 3 - 1:34 PM

The Arizona Coyotes have signed Mike McKenna to a one-year, two-way deal.

Mike McKenna had a 2.54 GAA and .910 save percentage in 36 AHL contests last season. Look for him to start the 2014-15 campaign in the minors.
