Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson is glad Doan will play in Arizona for another season.
Doan, the longest-tenured Coyote in franchise history, has also been a mentor to second-year forward Max Domi.
Sen. John McCain, who represents Arizona, was glad to keep Doan in-state.
Retired forward Tyson Nash, who played two seasons with the Coyotes, thought they took a big step forward to keep their leadership intact.
Coyotes play-by-play announcer Matthew McConnell holds Doan in very high regard.
