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

GLENDALE - Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun raised a few eyebrows at the 2016 NHL Draft when he confidently declared he was ready to make an immediate jump from junior hockey to the NHL as the 16th overall pick.

The 18-year-old talked the talk. Then he walked the walk.

"Going into camp, I would have said he wasn't going to play on our team (this season)," Head Coach Dave Tippett said at his recent season-ending press conference. "He basically willed himself on our team."

Perlini Displayed 'Bona Fide' Scoring Touch in Rookie Season

Rookie Brendan Perlini notched 14 goals in 57 games with Coyotes

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

GLENDALE - Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett spoke highly of several of the team's rookies at his recent season-ending press conference.

His powerful comments about forward Brendan Perlini, however, stood out.

"Perlini is something that this organization has been missing for a long time," Tippett said. "He's a bona fide goal scorer. He has the ability to score and plays the game fast. He's a pretty driven player, too. He's kind of a happy-go-lucky guy, but he really is a driven player. He's going to be a good player for a long time."

Perlini notched 14 goals in 57 NHL games in his first pro season, which he began playing for Tucson in the American Hockey League. He scored 14 goals there, too, in just 17 games, giving him 28 in his first 74 pro games.

Domi Produced Before, After Injury

Forward Max Domi finished third on Coyotes in points despite missing eight weeks

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

GLENDALE - Coyotes forward Max Domi avoided a sophomore slump in 2016-17, but what he didn't avoid was a lengthy stint on the sideline because of injury.

Domi, 22, fractured a hand bone during a fight with Calgary's Garnet Hathaway on Dec. 8 and missed 23 games over the next eight weeks. But he finished the season strong, and ranked third on the team with 38 points in 59 games.

"It was a tough year," Domi said. "It wasn't fun, that's for sure … I learned a lot about myself and about how you've got to really respect and appreciate being in the lineup every single night in the NHL. It's almost a good thing going down the road, I think. I'm looking forward to a good summer. Hopefully next year is a different story."

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

GLENDALE - Forward Radim Vrbata knew his NHL career wasn't over after a mediocre 2015-16 season with the Vancouver Canucks.

He proved that this season while playing for the Coyotes, for the third time. Vrbata, 35, led Arizona in goals (20), assists (35) and points (55), and was voted the team's Most Valuable Player by media members who regularly cover the team.

"It was a good season for me," Vrbata said in his final interview before leaving for the off-season. "I didn't set any goals for myself before the season, I was just happy to be coming back here. I knew I'd be put in a good situation with (Head Coach Dave Tippett). He knows how to use me. And playing with Marty (Hanzal) before he got traded helped."
