When Cole Brady looks back on his hockey playing career 20-some years from now, he probably won’t list the 12-month period between October 2020 and October 2021 as a highlight. While Brady posted a 2.55 goals against average and .929 save percentage in his final six starts to finish last season — including a 41-save shutout of Ohio State in…...

I had about 50 minutes to get from the Coyotes’ preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks at Gila River Arena in Glendale, to Arizona State’s season opener against UMass Lowell in Tempe on Saturday. The drive took only about 25 minutes, but I didn’t account for another factor: the Oceanside factor. As I approached the arena, cars stretched north and...

Training camp cuts are coming. It’s an undeniable reality of the NHL calendar. The Tucson Roadrunners open their training camp on Friday and they will need enough bodies to run that camp effectively.

It may seem too soon to throw NHL players into preseason games. The Coyotes have only had four days on the ice at training camp, plus today’s morning skate, but historically, that has been the approach that the league has taken.

Jeremy Roenick will never forget his reaction when he saw the Coyotes’ Kachina logo for the first time after the team acquired him in a trade with Chicago in August 1996. “They were so ugly they were pretty,” Roenick said. “You know me.

Johnny Walker announced a career shift in an exclusive interview with PHNX Sports at Oceanside Ice Arena on Tuesday. “I’m going back to being a stick boy,” Walker quipped as he climbed the stands with a stick in hand to chat with a reporter while the Sun Devils practiced. “That’s where it all started for me so I’ll just find...
