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

GLENDALE -- Max Domi is closely watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That's because he senses he and his Coyotes teammates soon will be participants.

"I watch pretty much every game," Domi said, not too long ago on 'Exit Day' inside Gila River Arena. "I haven't played a playoff game yet in my career, but that's the best hockey and what we all play for. You pick up something in every game. You're watching the best players compete on every shift, and that's how you learn."

Perlini Says Consistency is Key to Next Season, Beyond

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

GLENDALE -- Brendan Perlini is known for his powerful skating and accurate shot on the ice. Off the ice, he's known as a deep thinker. That was clear on "Exit Day" as Perlini discussed how the Coyotes would have to work hard to mimic what the Colorado Avalanche accomplished in 2017-18, and make the playoffs next season after not making it this season.

"You look at Colorado last year, they were last in the League," Perlini said. "I mean it's definitely a positive thing, but anything can happen. We can't just say 'Oh yeah, they were last and now they made playoffs.' We have to go do it. That's one of the main things I learned this year. Talk is cheap, and you have to go do it on the ice."

GLENDALE -- This Sunday, the three finalists for the Calder Trophy, the award given annually to the NHL's best rookie, will be announced. Playing in all 82 games this season, Coyotes forward Clayton Keller built a strong case to be included in that exclusive club.
