'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.

"When I got the call (about the trade), it was kind of a relief actually because growing up in Chicago and playing there, there's a lot of pressure," Hinostroza said. "I was happy to come down here (to Arizona) with a younger group and just try to be myself and make a name for myself."
