NHL Season Preview 2016-17: Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes had a surprisingly solid offseason, but can they turn that into progress this season?

The Arizona Coyotes surprised a lot of people last season by contending for most of the year. In many ways, their season was a success despite missing the playoffs. Young players stepped up for them; Michael Stone, Connor Murphy, Max Domi, and Anthony Duclair each made huge strides in their development. With a core of young players and a newly formed cache of veterans, the Coyotes will be a team to watch this offseason.
