The Arizona Coyotes would like to ink Antoine Vermette to an extension.

The value of top-two centers has gone up though and Vermette would be in for a big payday if he simply becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2015. The Coyotes might still be able to keep him, but he'll probably demand a substantial upgrade over his current five-year, $18.75 million deal.

Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers has requested that the state attorney general look into a meeting between the Arizona Coyotes and City Council members that took place last June that was previously undisclosed.

The question is whether or not Arizona's Open Meeting Law was violated. "I think it's a clear violation," Weiers said. "That meeting is wrong on so many levels. It's like playing poker and showing your opponents all your cards." If the law was violated, it could lead to the Coyotes' arena deal with the city being rescinded. That would put the team's future back in immediate jeopardy. That being said, it's not clear if that scenario is plausible.

Brendan Perlini has inked a three-year, entry-level contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

The Coyotes took Perlini with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He had 34 goals and 71 points in 58 OHL games in 2013-14. "Brendan is a strong skater with great size and skill," Coyotes GM Don Maloney said. "He had an impressive prospect development camp and we look forward to watching his development."

Jordan Szwarz has signed a two-year, two-way deal with Arizona.

Szwarz had three goals and no assists in 26 games with Arizona in 2013-14. He was taken by the Coyotes in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Brandon McMillan has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

McMillan had an arbitration hearing set for July 29. He scored two goals and registered four assists in 22 contests with Arizona last season.

The Arizona Coyotes have inked associate coach Jim Playfair to a multi-year extension.

Playfair has already spent three seasons serving as a coach with the Coyotes. Arizona has also handed out an extension to director of pro scouting Frank Effinger. In a third management move on Monday, they promoted Chris O'Hearn, who has been working for the Coyotes for seven seasons, to the post of vice president of hockey operations.

David Moss' recently signed one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes is worth $800,000.

That's a major pay cut from the $2.1 million Moss earned in 2013-14. He came very close to heading to Switzerland on a two-year deal, but he agreed to an 11th hour deal with Arizona. "I'm really excited to be back with the team," Moss said. "I believe the team is headed in the right direction, and I just want to be a part of it. I'm very grateful that they wanted me back, and I'm looking forward to having a great season."

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.
Jul 11 - 5:20 PM

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.
Jul 11 - 9:37 AM

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.
Jul 10 - 6:59 PM

Brandon McMillan's arbitration date has been set for July 29.

McMillan is coming off of a two-way contract that paid him $709,500 annually at the NHL level. He had two goals and six points in 22 games with Arizona.

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.
Jul 9 - 9:17 AM

Brandon McMillan has elected for salary arbitration.

He made $709,500 last season and recorded six points in 22 outings with the Coyotes.
