NEW YORK -- Several Coyotes players spent a few hours visiting NHL headquarters in Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon.

Max Domi, Anthony Duclair, Clayton Keller and Derek Stepan practiced with teammates at Madison Square Garden then traveled together to the League office. While there, the players met privately with Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly for about 20 minutes to discuss the hot topics around the League.

The players also did interviews for NHL Network and NHL.com, and took part in some fun social media endeavors. On several occasions the players interviewed each other. 

"How do you get your hair like that every morning?" Duclair asked Keller, using a water bottle as a microphone.

The Coyotes are in New York as part of a five-game road trip. They next play on Thursday vs. the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

The game is a homecoming for Stepan, who played seven seasons for the Rangers before being traded to Arizona in June. He was, by far, the most popular interviewee requested by the New York media on Wednesday. 

"I am completely invested into Arizona hockey," Stepan told reporters. "That's the way I am. I'm going to bleed Coyote colors now. That's how I carry myself and that's what I'm going to do for this organization."
