The Coyotes made their big move before the start of the free-agency period, trading a draft pick to Tampa Bay for centre Sam Gagner and right wing B.J. Crombeen on Sunday. Arizona also initiated a buyout of centre Mike Ribeiro's contract after last season's top signee didn't pan out.
The Coyotes beefed up their depth at centre by picking up Vitale, who spent his first four seasons with Pittsburgh. He has eight goals and 27 assists in 163 career games.
Dubnyk was the starter in Edmonton last season before struggling and being traded to Nashville. He replaces backup goalie Thomas Greiss, who signed with Pittsburgh.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
