Report: Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun was 'disappointed' he wasn't traded

  Report: Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun was 'disappointed' he wasn't traded Chychrun reportedly “welcomed” the idea of being traded to another club at the deadline and was “disappointed” that no deal was eventually reached. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun While that may come as a surprise to some observers, just one look at the NHL’s standings could explain his reported stance more clearly. With the Montreal Canadiens’ win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Coyotes now sit last in the NHL with a 20-40-4 record.

“We had good sticks tonight I thought,” Blues coach Craig Berube said. “I thought our D-zone coverage other than the one goal was pretty solid all around. You know, we didn’t give them a whole lot around our net.”

Tarasenko has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in his last 13 games and has a team-high six game-winning goals.

“For me, Vlady’s work ethic was the biggest key,” Berube said. “He was working without the puck, you know, back checking and those types of things and then offensively he finds ways to get open. That’s what he does best. He finished two tonight, could have probably three, but it’s good to see.”

  Scheifele scores in final seconds of OT, Jets beat Coyotes WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mark Scheifele scored his second goal of the game with 9.7 seconds left in overtime, giving the Winnipeg Jets a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday night. Scheifele went in alone and beat Arizona goalie Karel Vejmelka to send the Coyotes to their fifth straight loss. Arizona is 0-4-1 during the skid. Scheifele also scored in the first period as the Jets closed out a four-game homestand with a 3-1-0 record. Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves.

Nick Schmaltz scored in the third period and Ivan Prosvetov made 24 saves for the Coyotes, who lost for the eighth time in 10 games.

“That was a big-boy game tonight,” Coyotes coach André Tourigny said. “They were big, fast, on us, they hit, and we had no answer.”

St. Louis took control with three goals in a four-minute span early in the second period.

Barbashev gave the Blues the lead at the 2:17 mark. He started the sequence by getting his glove on a Coyotes’ clearing attempt and keeping it in the zone before scoring off the rebound of a shot by Calle Rosen.

“I think we’re playing well,” Thomas said. “We’re finding each other. I think we’re working hard for each other, not trying to do too much with it, you know, when it’s not there. We’re finding ways to create turnovers and create chances off those.”

Coyotes' Clayton Keller hospitalized, out for season with leg injury

  Coyotes' Clayton Keller hospitalized, out for season with leg injury Arizona forward Clayton Keller went down with a scary-looking leg injury with 5:15 remaining in the contest and was ultimately removed from the ice on a stretcher. Clayton Keller leaves the game on a stretcher after an awkward wipe-out into the boards. Have a thumbs up on his way off but clearly in a ton of pain. Hoping for the best, he’s had a terrific season. #Yotes pic.twitter.com/pgQFhrGuO9— NHL News (@PuckReportNHL) March 31, 2022 Keller was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, and the 23-year-old confirmed on Thursday morning he was still at the medical facility and won't play again this spring.

Husso capped the dominant period with a glove save on Michael Carcone’s breakaway in the final seconds of the second.

“He has stood on his head for us and even when we’re not playing well in front of them, he’s found a way to keep us in games,” Thomas said.

Prosvetov, playing in just his third game this season and first since January 14, stopped all 10 shots in a scoreless first period including a pair of nifty pad saves on point-blank chances by Colton Parayko and Schenn.

“It was a tough night for him in the sense of the workload and the opponent and quality of shot and the goal he gave and all of it,” Tourigny said. “I don’t think he’s by any stretch to blame. The reverse I think, he made a key save in the first, he kept us right there and there’s a lot of positives.”
