/ Arizona Coyotes
The Coyotes will receive the Calgary Flames' first-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Calgary sent a first-round pick in either 2009 or 2010 to the Coyotes, along with forwards Matthew Lombardi and Brandon Prust, for center Olli Jokinen in a deal at last season's trade deadline. The Flames on Monday opted to keep their first-round pick in 2009.
Phoenix also sent its third-round pick in the 2009 draft to the Flames in the Jokinen deal.
The 2009 NHL Entry Draft will be held June 26-27 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The Coyotes have the sixth overall pick and six total picks in the draft. Besides the sixth overall pick, the Coyotes have picks in the second, fourth (two picks), sixth and seventh rounds.
