The league’s most famous rookie tournament in Traverse City, Michigan has featured as many as eight teams in past years, making it a destination for staff both north and south of the border. The tournaments present an opportunity for executives, coaches and scouts to hobnob with their peers, to…

Throughout his first year on the job, Coyotes GM Bill Armstrong put a brave face on the lack of confidants to whom he could turn. While he has jokingly compared his first months in the big chair to driving a Tesla 200 miles per hour in the fog, Armstrong has always pivoted quickly away from that pity-me approach, reminding everyone...
