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

GLENDALE -- The Coyotes added a much-needed right-shot forward and a depth defenseman on Thursday as part of a complex, seven-player trade with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Vinnie Hinostroza, who has notched 13 goals in 106 NHL games, is a winger Arizona General Manager John Chayka believes will fit in well on the roster. 

"Hinostroza is a right shot with speed and skill," Chayka said. "He's rated as one of the top undervalued players in the league … We think very highly of Vinnie Hinostroza. His future is excellent and he'll be a big part of what we do here."

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

GLENDALE - The Coyotes continued to stockpile centers this off-season by re-signing Brad Richardson to a two-year contract on Tuesday. 

Richardson, 33, became an unrestricted free agent on Sunday. He tested the market for a few days but decided the best fit was back with the Coyotes, for whom he's played 174 games since first signing with Arizona as a UFA in 2015.

"It was always a priority of ours to bring him back in the fold and a priority of his to stay in Arizona," General Manager John Chayka said.

Coyotes Banking on Grabner's Speed, Shot

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

GLENDALE -- The Coyotes added scoring winger Michael Grabner to their offensive attack on Sunday by signing the unrestricted free agent to a three-year contract.

"He's a proven even-strength scorer," General Manager John Chayka said. "Those are difficult to find. He's a top-10 scorer in the last two years in terms of even-strength goals. The game is trending toward speed and skill and he's got it in spades, and he's an elite penalty killer. He's got these special attributes that are typically very difficult to find in free agency, and if you ever do find them you end up paying an arm and a leg. I thought it was a good value play. We got someone who's motivated, who's in great shape and had an interest in playing for the Coyotes. We wanted to address our wing position and add some goal scoring, and we felt we addressed that with Michael."
