On Jan. 5, the Coyotes were 11 points ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks, seven points ahead of the Columbus Blue Jackets, five points ahead of the Anaheim Ducks, tied with the San José Sharks, and two points behind the Montréal Canadiens in the NHL standings. The odds of landing Connor Bedard — or even Adam Fantilli or Leo Carlsson —…

Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel celebrates after scoring a goal during the second period against the Coyotes.

Jake Guentzel doesn’t need approval from his dad, Mike, who is a pro scout for the Coyotes. Over the past five seasons, only 10 players in the NHL have scored more goals than the Pittsburgh Penguins’ vastly underappreciated wing. With his dad in town for the Coyotes pro scout meetings, and in attendance at Mullett Arena for Sunday’s Coyotes-Penguins game, however, Jake put on a show. Guentzel scored two, second-period goals and the Penguins snapped a six-game losing streak with a 4-1 win against the Coyotes. The loss was the fifth straight for the Coyotes, who have been outscored 22-9 during the skid. The loss also snapped the Coyotes’ three-game winning streak at home. https://youtu.be/iFEPLKsujyk “I saw a really good…

As PHNX Sports speculated would likely happen, the Coyotes have officially loaned forward Dylan Guenther to Hockey Canada for the IIHF World Junior Championship, the team announced on Thursday. Guenther left the team right after playing against the Oilers in his hometown of Edmonton on Wednesday; a game that concluded the Coyotes’ NHL record-tying 14-game road trip. “You like to see your prospects under the fire, whether that’s playing for a national championship in college, or playing for a Memorial Cup in juniors, or playing in international competitions,” Coyotes GM Bill Armstrong said. “You like to see them in those pressure situations because you find out a lot about them and they really tend to grow from them. “We had…

It’s rare to see a Coyotes draft pick play in Arizona in the same season in which he was drafted.  Jakob Chychrun made the NHL roster in his draft year of 2016 and Clayton Keller played three games for the Coyotes late that same season; games in which former coach Dave Tippett humorously noted that he looked like a child on the ice.  Mikkel Boedker and Viktor Tikhonov made the NHL roster in their draft year of 2008, Kyle Turris did it in 2007, and JJ Moser did it last season.That’s it. Until the past two years.  Sort of. Which is another way of saying just how much hockey has grown in Arizona since the Coyotes’ arrival in 1996. It…

Dylan Guenther isn’t going anywhere, unless you count the Coyotes’ current Eastern road trip. GM Bill Armstrong said that Arizona’s 2021 first-round pick will be staying with the team past his nine-game trial. “He has earned it with his play,” Armstrong said. https://twitter.com/ArizonaCoyotes/status/1588924385280159744 Dylan Guenther’s parents, Russ and Nadine, delivered the news. Guenther played his ninth NHL game on Thursday when the Coyotes faced the Dallas Stars. In those nine games, he had two goals and six points. He entered Friday’s game tied for fifth among NHL rookies in points despite averaging less ice time (12:42) per game than any of the top-14 rookie points leaders. “He does a lot of things,” coach André Tourigny said. “First of all, he…

Dylan Guenther will play in his eighth NHL game tonight against the Florida Panthers at Mullett Arena. On Thursday, he will face the Dallas Stars in his ninth game. The timing works out perfectly for the Coyotes, who depart Friday on a five-game Eastern road trip against the Capitals, Sabres, Islanders, Devils and Rangers. If Guenther boards that plane with...

BOSTON — Dylan Guenther had a pretty good idea that he’d be playing at some point on this season-opening, six-game road trip. Coyotes coach André Tourigny had spoken to him before the team took off for Pittsburgh on Wednesday. When Nick Schmaltz went down with an upper-body injury in the first period at PPG Paints Arena on Thursday, however, it...

PITTSBURGH — We’ve told you about TD Garden’s inhospitably, but PPG Paints Arena has been the Coyotes’ true house of horrors. In 10 previous games at Pittsburgh’s 12-year-old arena, the Coyotes were 1-9 and had been outscored 41-11, so when the schedule makers added insult to injury this season by launching the Coyotes’ stretch of 20 road games in their...

The Coyotes opening night roster wasn’t officially released until after practice and media availability had ended on Monday at the Ice Den Scottsdale, but GM Bill Armstrong tipped his hand over the weekend with a flurry of moves that brought the roster to 27 players, with five of them expected to land on IR. When the Coyotes claimed goalie Connor...

André Tourigny faced myriad challenges in his first year as an NHL coach. Year two behind the Coyotes bench will only add to his trials. The Arizona roster has been remade again, robbing the team of much of its previous leadership group, and this season’s roster is built for yet another season of languishing at the bottom of the standings. On top of that, the Coyotes will play in a 5,000-seat (less for NHL games) college arena, their practice facility is a makeshift amalgam of spaces, the team won’t play a single home game in the preseason and it will play 20 of its first 24 regular-season games on the road. None of this phases Tourigny. “I’m not a guy…
