The Coyote

(Click image to enlarge)

The Coyote is a drifter and he is happiest when wandering the desert country he calls home. The Coyote is human in appearance with a noticeably feral attitude. He has extremely long retractable claws on his hands and a set of teeth with unusually sharp canines. His outfit is reminiscent of a mysterious plains drifter complete with a huge duster that flows behind him as he moves.  He possesses the power of summoning in that he can bring forth a pack of coyotes from the void in his coat.  He can also fire cactus quills from inside his coat as well. He has the power to conjure up the spirits of the earth and his ancestors in order to get advice as well as to get help when needed.

The Coyote is very adaptable; he easily survives and even thrives in 130-degree heat as well as -60 degree cold. He's a mysterious multifaceted character that, although he doesn't always show it, is as dependable as the Phoenix heat.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
