Rebuilding a franchise is a delicate process, and the Coyotes are making an effort to put the team in a position for a Stanley Cup run in the next few years. General Manager Don Maloney hit the ground running with an active trade deadline, that sent players to multiple teams. He then began integrating new faces into the line-ups in hopes of giving some players experience on NHL ice.
The next step for the team was selecting a core group of skillful, young players at the 2015 NHL Draft. In what experts say has been a very successful draft for the Coyotes, the team drafted raw talent that will be beneficial to the franchise in the future. The team is currently signing veteran players to compliment the young guys on the ice.
Aside from the off-ice roster moves, the Coyotes had many highlights from this past year as well. This team may not have had the best performance this year, but they certainly gave fans something to cheer about on multiple occasions.
