Arizona Coyotes 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

The last time the Arizona Coyotes made the Stanley Cup Playoffs in a full season was in 2012. Last spring, the voters of Tempe, AZ, rejected a new arena district. So the Coyotes play in a college arena with an uncertain future in the desert. However, all is not lost. The Coyotes look ready to start the next phase of their rebuild, which means filling out a thin roster. The goal difference added may seem meager, but just adding a stable of average skaters is a big deal for a team with many below-average skaters. While there may not be much to write home about regarding Sean Durzi, Jason Zucker and Alex Kerfoot (plus the returns of Nick Bjugstad and Troy Stecher after a post-deadline Alberta vacation), they’re all guys who can actually play. That helps a team in Arizona’s position begin the grueling climb back to relevancy.

The 2022-23 Arizona Coyotes were 28-40-14 straight up and 41-37 over/under the total. Also, Arizona was 7th in the Central Division playoff standings. Arizona was 39 points behind the Colorado Avalanche in the Central Division race. Arizona had NHL rankings of 27th for goals scored and 24th for power play efficiency. In comparison, on defense, Arizona had NHL rankings of 24th for goals against and 27th for penalty killing.

First among Arizona scorers was Clayton Keller with 37 goals, 49 assists, 86 points, and a -2. Goaltender Karel Vejmelka had a .899 save percentage and 3.43 goals against average. His record was 18-24-6 with three shutouts.

Part of the reason the Coyotes hired Andre Tourigny was his ability to teach the game and help players refine their game. So far, Tourigny and his staff have seen a production surge from Lawson Crouse, Clayton Keller, Matias Maccelli, Jack McBain, and JJ Moser.

How the Coyotes navigated the draft and free agency has put them in a strong position. Their draft class featured a pair of top-12 picks and 12 players total. They added Sean Durzi via trade to give them another young player on the back end while signing Bjugstad, Kerfoot, and Zucker in free agency. Altogether, it looks like a formula that could set the Coyotes up well into the future. Either they elect to keep some of their free-agent signings, trade them, or do a mix of both to bolster their young group.

Considering the progress made by some of that current young core, the Coyotes can go in several different directions. Arizona was often a tough out in 2023. And that effort has become a hallmark of their brand.

Arizona Coyotes History

Born in 1972 as a World Hockey Association charter member as the Winnipeg Jets, the Coyotes moved to the metro Phoenix area in 1996. Their best season was in 2012, when they made the Western Conference Final. Ironically enough, that is when they were an orphan owned by the NHL.

From the start, it has been a struggle for Arizona in the desert. Originally the Coyotes shared an arena with the NBA Phoenix Suns. But many of the seats in one end zone were obstructed. When the Coyotes finally got their own home, it was in remote Glendale. The theory was that there would be major land development with a shopping mall, homes, and entertainment complexes. The project never worked despite a football stadium for the NFL Arizona Cardinals being next door. Coyote fans hated the long drive from downtown and affluent Scottsdale. Especially for weeknight games.

Now the Coyotes have left Glendale to play at the home of the NCAA Arizona State Sun Devils program in an arena that seats around 6,000 fans. The plan is to play there for a couple of years until a new arena can be built in Tempe. The project is yet to see a shovel penetrate the ground.
