Beside the play of top-line defensemen Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, it has been a relatively forgettable year for the Arizona Coyotes. The team is firmly out of a playoff position and well off-pace to match last season’s total of 89 points, which landed them ninth in the Western Conference. Arizona’s AHL team, the Portland Pirates, is middle-of-the-pack but holding on to a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

Entering the 2014-15 season, many Arizona Coyotes fans were quietly wondering if Max Domi would bring any scoring punch to the desert as an NHL rookie in 2014-15. They were blindsided when he was unceremoniously returned to the OHL’s London Knights without even a sniff of regular season NHL action.

The Arizona Coyotes have actively addressed the composition of their prospect pool since the 2013-14 trade deadline. A year ago, there was a logjam of talented defensemen throughout their pipeline. At the deadline, general manager Dave Maloney traded David Rundblad to the Chicago Blackhawks. At the 2014 NHL Draft, the Coyotes grabbed seven forwards while only selecting two defensemen, both in the late rounds.

The Arizona Coyotes head into training camp with some key roster spots available. With Mike Ribeiro having left town, Max Domi, Henrik Samuelsson and Lucas Lessio will all vie for the vacancy in Arizona’s top nine forwards. Also, Brandon Gormley appears ready to finally wrestle away an NHL roster spot from the fading veterans at the bottom of Arizona’s depth chart like David Schlemko.
