Sharks acquire Kyle Wood from Coyotes

We’ve got Wood. In the first of potentially several off-season trades, the San Jose Sharks flipped forward Adam Helewka to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for defenseman Kyle Wood. The 6-foot-7 Wood was acquired by the Coyotes in the Mikkel Boedker trade, having originally been selected in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Avalanche. Wood’s professional career got off to a stellar start with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners in 2016. An AHL All-Star in his rookie season, the right-handed defenseman put up 43 points in 68 games and won the hardest-shot competition. However, his...

Draft prospect profile: Jesse Ylönen is fast and furious with dangles to spare

The Finnish prospect has lots of skill, but size issues sometimes prevent him from being able to use it. Born into the ice hockey world in October 1999 while his dad was playing with the Phoenix Coyotes, Jesse had the option to represent either USA or Finland, and the fast skilled winger choose Finland. He has also chosen to play in Finland to keep developing, even if he was drafted by the Muskegon Lumberjacks. With the Finnish development system success lately, you cannot blame Ylönen for that choice. While he is a raw talent, it is easy to spot what makes him an enticing prospect; he is...

Blackhawks & Hurricanes: Trade Winds Blowing

Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman made two huge moves prior to the 2017 NHL Entry Draft when he traded with the Arizona Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets, completely changing the look of his team. As we approach this year’s draft, Bowman could be working on another big deal with a familiar trading partner.

Who is Jacob Bernard-Docker, and why is he ranked 25th for the draft?

When an unfamiliar name shows up on a draft list right where the Leafs are picking, you need to at least ask who that is. Last year, Craig Button slotted Pierre-Olivier Joseph in for the Leafs in his mock draft. I found that unusual pick interesting, so I looked into the player no one else had ranked that high. Joseph, a defender, was ultimately drafted by the Arizona Coyotes at 23rd overall, and he returned to junior hockey where he was the captain of his team and doubled his goal total from the previous year (six to 13). Here we are one year later, and ISS Hockey has a player high on...


NHL Trade Rumors: Are the Penguins interested in Max Domi?

With free agency and the NHL Draft looming nearly a month away, we’re creeping in on silly season, but I guess it really is that season all year long. The latest buzz surrounding the Penguins came from Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek’s 31 Thoughts podcast and involved Arizona Coyotes forward Max Domi. Specifically when mentioning teams interested, two named were the Canadiens and the Penguins. The ties between Tie Domi and Mario Lemieux are nothing to ignore in this case, in my opinion. Two people with a lot of connections and contacts in the hockey circles that could...

2018 Mock Draft: Arizona Coyotes pick Quinn Hughes, American Hero, 5th overall

Oh say can you see, reinforcements for Arizona’s d-corps? Arizona’s 2018 season started about as strong as a wet spaghetti noodle, but it finished with a strong final third of the season and the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The Coyotes are a struggling young team looking to turn youthful potential into on-ice success. Hopefully, maybe they can find some help, but from whence would it come? What’s that I hear? “Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies” Can it be? “for amber waves of Quinn” It is! It is America here to provide elite hockey talent in the form of Quinn...

Who is Laurence Gilman?

I dig around in his radio archive and Full 60 interview to get to know the Leafs new AGM. The official bio for Laurence Gilman, the Toronto Maple Leafs new AGM, lists all the stats, just like for a player. He even has an Elite Prospects page. He’s from Winnipeg, graduated law school in North Dakota, started his NHL career with the Jets (original recipe) soon after that. He first shows up in a management job with the Phoenix Coyotes in 1998. He was with the Vancouver Canucks from 2008 to 2015, and he helped the NHL design and implement the expansion draft process that brought the Vegas...
