I don’t need to be reminded that I have been covering the Coyotes for a long while. It happens all the time. A player or coach from another era will text me. I’ll find a media guide or another piece of paraphernalia from the early 2000s. A fan will recount some almost forgotten moment. Or I’ll have another birthday like…...

Alex Ovechkin calls the goal he scored in Glendale during his rookie season his favorite.

Alex Ovechkin has scored a lot of big goals. That will happen when you play 18 NHL seasons and put 882 pucks in the net between the regular season and the postseason.  There was this ridiculous goal that he scored against the New Jersey Devils on Dec. 20, 2014. There was the OT winner that he scored on May 1, 2018 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. That goal eventually helped the Capitals eliminate the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, shed the label of a team that could not escape the second round of the playoffs, and ignite a run to the franchise’s only Stanley Cup.  There have been electrifying individual efforts, 294 power-play goals — many of them scored from Ovi’s…

Jakob Chychrun changed his sticks for the Coyotes’ last game against the San José Sharks. He wasn’t happy with the accuracy and velocity of his shots.  “I’ve had so many looks that I usually capitalize on that I haven’t been this year, which has been a bit frustrating,” Chychrun said of his switch to the CCM Pro stock Jetspeed. “I...

His Coyotes teammates call Nick Bjugstad “Byoogie,” a nod to that troublesome J in his Norwegian surname.  Coach André Tourigny drops the J and calls him “Boogie” because it rolls a little more easily off his French-Canadian tongue.  Bjugstad’s Florida Panthers teammates used to call him “Rotisserie Chicken” because he couldn’t find parking one night when he was meeting them...

I have long believed that the entire period between Christmas Eve Day and New Year’s Day should be a national holiday. Business leaders probably don’t agree. The US is so hyper focused on productivity and work ethic that it fails to consider the benefits that more balance might be create. An entire week off probably sounds like blasphemy. Some smaller...

As colleague Steve Peters has noted, the November edition of the PHNX Coyotes prospect report felt like the Euro edition — and a mouthful for readers, who had to memorize the pronunciations of EHC Red Bull München defenseman Maksymilian Szuber, IK Oskarshamn defenseman Emil Martinsen Lilleberg and Madison Capitols forward Miko Matikka. It’s the holiday season so I kept it...

André Tourigny’s conversations with Karel Vejmelka can feel a bit one-sided. “He talks as much as your bag,” the Coyotes coach quipped. That doesn’t mean that Vejmelka is sullen or detached, however. Quite the opposite. “He’s not low maintenance; he’s zero maintenance,” Tourigny said. “There is no day when he arrives and he’s moody or whatever. Every day is a...

Rick Zombo and his Lindenwood University hockey staff have been leaning on Greg Powers for advice over the past couple of seasons. The Lions, who joined the NCAA Division I ranks this season, are walking the same path that the Sun Devils walked eight seasons ago when ASU made the leap from club team to Division I. Zombo has something...
