Dubnyk makes 25 saves against former team in Wild win over Coyotes

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Forgive Devan Dubnyk if he was feeling a bit of confusion Saturday night. The Minnesota Wild's new goaltender was set to make his first home start for his new team, but he's living out of a hotel room. In the same hotel was his former team, the Arizona Coyotes, and the players he'd be facing later that night.  In some ways, Dubnyk was thankful the experience wasn...

Uncertainty will test Coyotes once again

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes are more experienced than most pro sports team at playing through uncertainty. Their four-year ownership odyssey taught them how to block out the most intrusive of distractions.

Devan Dubnyk Traded To The Wild, Worth A Look In Most Leagues

The Arizona Coyotoes did a strange thing yesterday when they traded their best goalie, Devan Dubnyk, to the Wild for a third round pick. On the surface this might sound like a fairly yawnstipating deal. The Wild are getting killed in goal this season and it’s one of the few parts that don’t work for them, but adding a guy who has a career GAA of 2.88 might seem like the wrong...

Coyotes will wear original jerseys on March 5th

Do you miss the old days when the Phoenix Coyotes (now the Arizona Coyotes) wore crazy uniforms that had a Coyote holding a hockey stick surrounded by a ton of colors and designs? Of course you do. Who doesn’t? Rejoice, original Coyotes fans. The team will return to their roots on March 5th and bring back the iconic (for better or worse) uniform they wore when they first entered...

Coyotes' roster overhaul begins in earnest with trade of Dubnyk

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes' roster overhaul has begun in earnest. Arizona shipped backup goalie Devan Dubnyk to Minnesota on Wednesday for a third-round draft pick in 2015. Dubnyk will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He signed a one-year, $800,000 deal in the offseason, so the move made sense for the Coyotes. He wasn't going to be back anyway and the Coyotes...

Is this the year the Arizona Coyotes finally trade Keith Yandle?

While they’ve managed to demonstrate a bit of competence lately, going (technically) over .500 in their last ten games, the Arizona Coyotes have had a rough go of things this season. With the calendar having just turned over to 2015, don’t expect those struggles to come to an end anytime soon. In fact, as the weeks begin to wear on, the news coming out of the desert could relate...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Finding a home for Sam Gagner has been one of the biggest challenges Coyotes coach Dave Tippett has faced this season.

Coyote Ugly: Vermette scores twice as Coyotes down Flyers
