The Arizona Coyotes have typically drafted out of the junior ranks early in drafts, then used picks later in the draft to add depth. Notable NCAA prospects Connor Clifton, Hunter Fejes, Rhett Holland, and Zac Larraza will finish off their campaigns with playoff appearances. Meanwhile, Jared Fiegl closed out his season with a murmur and Jedd Soleway has at least one weekend of hockey left to develop.

In this week’s Prospect Faceoff, two sets of draft-eligible players go to head-to-head in critical games for their respective teams. In the OHL, two of the most improved players will see game action against each other. In addition, polar opposite defensemen lead their teams in a pair of NCAA games this weekend.

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.
