At the age of 23 Alex Goligoski won a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009. Goligoski only played in 2 playoff games during 2009. However he brings a different side of experience to the room.

Alex Goligoski is now 34 years old. It has been 11 years since he played in the Stanley Cup playoffs and won the Stanley Cup. Since then he has played in 32 playoff games, and has not made it to the Final.

Goligoski is an example of how fleeting the opportunity it is to win a Stanley Cup. You do not get unlimited opportunities to win, so Goligoski can help spark the Coyotes.
