Allen Brings Coaching Experience to Coyotes

Scott Allen has coached pro hockey for more than 20 years

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

GLENDALE - Scott Allen is a seasoned hockey coach eager for the next challenge. 

The Coyotes named Allen, and John MacLean, as assistant coaches to Head Coach Rick Tocchet on Wednesday. 

"I am extremely excited about being a member of the staff with Rich and John MacLean," said Allen, who has coached pro hockey since 1996. "I think the biggest reason (Allen and Tocchet) clicked is because we feel very similar with how the game needs to be played with the young nucleus of up-and-coming NHL stars we have in our lineup. I spent a good part of my coaching career in the American Hockey League and both teams I've been with in the NHL, the New York Islanders and Florida this past year, the nucleus at the time I was there was young guys … It seems to me they are really trying to get things going in the right direction, and that young nucleus and young core is very appealing to me."

Allen, 51, will work primarily with Arizona's defensemen and the penalty-killing unit. In that role with Florida last season, Allen guided the Panthers to an 85.3 percent success rate on the PK that ranked second-best in the League.

'Yotes Notes: Martinook Happy to Avoid Arbitration

Forward Jordan Martinook signed a two-year contract on Saturday

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

GLENDALE -- Forward Jordan Martinook will celebrate his 25th birthday on Tuesday without worrying about his next contract. That's because the restricted free agent and the Coyotes agreed to a two-year deal on Saturday. 

Martinook filed for salary arbitration earlier this off-season and his case was scheduled to be heard on Wednesday in Toronto.  

"I definitely did not want to go to arbitration," Martinook said. "It's just a process that RFAs take when you have it. I was definitely happy to get something done before Wednesday. It's my 25th birthday on Tuesday, and then I found out it's my agent's anniversary on the 26th, so the stars aligned and it's nice that we don't have to come to Toronto ... I'm happy I get to stay in Arizona for two more years. We've got a young team and we're trending in the right direction."
