Strome's Next Step: Play Full Season in NHL

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

GLENDALE -- Dylan Strome knows this is a critical season for him as he attempts to establish himself as an NHL player. His goal is to make Arizona's Opening Night roster and play all 82 games.

Strome, whom the Coyotes selected third overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, already has proven he can produce points in junior hockey and in the American Hockey League. And he showed flashes of production for Arizona during the final 10 games of last season. 

The question is, can Strome, now 21, contribute consistently at both ends of the ice in the NHL?

'Yotes Notes: Galchenyuk's Skills Impress Chayka

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

GLENDALE - Alex Galchenyuk is making quite a positive impression during his first week on the job with the Coyotes.

Galchenyuk is transitioning from winger back to center at training camp and his enthusiasm is palpable. On Tuesday, he centered Arizona's top line in a preseason game vs. Los Angeles and scored two goals in a 4-2 victory.  

"He's a special player, one of the most talented guys," General Manager John Chayka told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, the team's flagship radio station, on Wednesday. "Now that I see him every day in practice, day in and day out, you really recognize the quality of his shot and plays he makes. He's a better playmaker than I gave him credit for. Last night, you see him with a one-timer and he just blows it by a goalie. I mean if you have that weapon on your power play it kind of changes that whole dynamic."

Hinostroza Poised for Breakout Season

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

GLENDALE - Even though Vinnie Hinostroza was born and raised in the Chicago area, the young Coyotes forward has embraced an off-season trade that jettisoned him from his hometown Blackhawks.
