Coyotes looking to future after busy week of trades

Monday, 03.02.2015 / 11:03 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- When the Arizona Coyotes traded center Antoine Vermette and defenseman Zbynek Michalek leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline, there was little surprise. Each can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and the Coyotes needed to get what they could before losing them.

But in between, Coyotes general manager Don Maloney pulled the trigger on a trade that sent shockwaves through the dressing room and signaled that a retool had become a total rebuild.

Coyotes leading scorer Keith Yandle, who spent his entire eight-season career in Arizona, most of it in the locker next to captain Shane Doan, was traded to the New York Rangers, with Maloney content that the promise of young center Anthony Duclair and a first- and second-round draft pick would be a big part of a future that needed to begin as soon as possible.
