Name to Know: Merrick Madsen

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

GLENDALE -- Coyotes prospect Merrick Madsen turned heads in his first week as a goalie in the American Hockey League. Madsen, who has been filling in for injured starter Adin Hill for the Tucson Roadrunners, posted a 3-0-0 record in three starts and notched back-to-back shutouts vs. the San Jose Barracuda. 

"You can't get shutouts by yourself," Madsen told reporters after his second shutout on Saturday. "It's everyone out there blocking shots and helping me out where they can. Obviously I feel like I'm in a flow where things are going right, but it's a team effort."

Madsen stopped 66 of 69 shots in his first three AHL starts, including all 47 he faced in the two games vs. San Jose. He has not allowed a goal in his last 123:05 minutes of play.

Recap: Coyotes Can't Solve DeSmith, Lose to Penguins

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

PITTSBURGH -- Seeking their first victory in more than a week, the Coyotes launched 39 shots on Penguins goalie Casey DeSmith on Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena. The undrafted netminder, who is subbing for struggling Matt Murray these days, stopped them all.

"We had some chances to score, but DeSmith made some good plays," Coyotes Head Coach Rick Tocchet said. "And obviously Sidney Crosby is Sidney Crosby. He was the difference maker. He dominated tonight and we didn't have an answer."

'Yotes Notes: PK Unit Scoring Goals, Turning Heads

What's Behind ARI's Stellar PK?

What's Behind ARI's Stellar PK?

An inside look at the Coyotes' record-breaking penalty kill this season, which has scored nine goals and allowed very few thus far in 2018-19

  • 02:05 •

PITTSBURGH -- The Coyotes are scoring short-handed goals at a remarkable rate so far this season. It's been fun to watch, but it's likely just a temporary trend. Or is it?

"We'll take it while it lasts," said forward Michael Grabner, who has produced three of Arizona's nine shorties through 14 games. "The big thing is we're still killing the penalties at the same time. That's the biggest objective when you go out there - to try to get the two minutes killed off. We've been talking so much (about scoring shorties) the last week to 10 days ... but it still hasn't changed. We're still trying to keep the same mind-set and just go out there and do our thing."
