Coyotes Sign Kuemper

October 2, 2019 - 3:53 PM ET

The Arizona Coyotes have signed Darcey Kuemper to a two year contract extension worth $4.5 million dollars annually. Kuemper deserved some Vezina votes last year when he single handedly kept the Coyotes in the playoff race until the Final week. Had they made it, it wouldn't have been wron...

Coyotes Scratch Hayton for Season Opener

October 3, 2019 - 4:33 PM ET

The Arizona Coyotes will open the 2019-20 season tonight against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Darcey Kuemper gets the start, Raanta isn't even backing up. The Coyotes and Ducks are two teams that will be relying on their goalies almost exclusively if they end up competing for the playoffs....

Well, That was Certainly Predictable

October 4, 2019 - 9:30 AM ET

Stop me if you've heard this one before: The Coyotes played a half-decent game, their goalie was awesome, they limited their opponent to two goals or less and still lost. Someone call Denzel, cause I'm having Deja Vu. Why is this team dressing Bard Richardson (he loves Hamlet), Crouse...

Coyotes Need to be Less Conservative With Rookies

October 5, 2019 - 12:29 PM ET

The Arizona Coyotes are a team that is working hard to get out of the basement. They've missed the Playoffs for seven straight seasons. They've finally got a new owner (just kidding they get a new one every year) but this one seems different (so they say), and if that's true then maybe some...

Coyotes score once in 2 games: Is it too early to fire the coach?

No it really isn't.

Coyotes After 2 Games

October 7, 2019 - 12:54 PM ET

The NHL Season is two games old, and the Coyotes are 0-2. Last season, the Coyotes had Vezina worthy goaltending, but wasted it because they couldn't score any goals. Over the summer, the only way they addressed this was by swapping Alex Galchenyuk for Phil Kessel. I am a huge Kessel fa...

Coyotes Looking for Second Goal in Third Game

October 10, 2019 - 11:12 AM ET

The NHL season is over a week old, and while the Leafs started the season with four games in six nights, the Coyotes had a second off-season and will play just their third game tonight. Besides keeping the team on the sidelines for half a week, the schedule maker was even more of a jerk by givin...

Coyotes Score and Even Win!

October 11, 2019 - 2:23 PM ET

The Coyotes played their best game of the season last night, got their first win, and even picked up four goals, which is brings them to a whopping five on the season. The lack of scoring is unfortunate, because it obscures what has been an excellent start to the season for the Coyotes. Da...

Hjalmarsson Injured

October 13, 2019 - 1:58 PM ET

The Coyotes lost last night, 3-2 to the Colorado Avalanche. It was a pretty good game, typical of the Coyotes - their goalie had a shut-out for most of the game, and they scored two goals. (Which is like any other team scoring eight). Honestly, it was a good comeback, and getting a poin...
