When I was asked what one person I would save in an expansion draft, I had a hard time deciding. Like every team, there are many players that make the Coyotes who they are. However, there is one player that I feel hasn’t reached his peak yet- and has so much more to offer the team in years to come.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson.
