Which Arizona Coyotes rookie has impressed you the most thus far?

Drew WaltersBrendan Perlini has really impressed me with his shot, speed, and creativity. He gives you the feeling that a goal can come at any minute, much like the Killer D’s did last year.

However, the most impressive rookie has to be Jakob Chychrun. He has been in and out of the lineup some, but he’s also the only defenseman from his draft class to stick in the NHL this year.

Not to mention his CF% is close to 50% on the worst possession team in the league.

Jason Harrison — I never thought I’d be saying this before the season began, but Brendan Perlini has to be the pick.

He’s providing offense when no one else can score. He’s exciting to watch. It’s almost a throwback to the Killer D’s of last year.

His rise from being considered a bust to budding star has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Perlini is like when a supporting character in a TV show takes over every scene they are in and eventually joins the main cast. Sometimes that character gets his own show. Maybe Perlini is Ari on Entourage. Maybe he’ll become Saul Goodman and get his own spin-off.

However far he goes, right now he’s the most exciting player wearing a Coyote head on his chest.

Marcus Velasco — Brendan Perlini is the rookie that has impressed me the most so far.

Every time he touches the puck I feel like he can make something happen. He has an elite shot and brings some energy to this stagnant offense.

I am a big believer in Brendan Perlini and to me he has been a bright spot in this dismal season.
