LAST SEASON: 35-39-8, 78 points. 10th in Western Conference and fourth in Pacific Division.

COACH: Dave Tippett (seventh season, 13th NHL season).

ADDED: D Alex Goligoski, D Anthony DeAngelo, D Luke Schenn, F Jamie McGinn, F Radim Vrbata, F Ryan White.

LOST: Antoine Vermette, F Kyle Chipchura, F Boyd Gordon, D Nicklas Grossman.

PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Max Domi. The son of former NHL player Tie Domi starred as a rookie last season. Playing on a line with fellow rookie Anthony Duclair last season, he was a dynamic force, scoring 18 goals with 34 assists. A year under his belt, he should only be better this season.

OUTLOOK: The Coyotes have an interesting mix of talented young players and veteran presence. Domi and Duclair should only continue to develop and Arizona has one of the deepest minor-league systems in the league. If G Mike Smith plays well, Arizona could be a playoff team. Even if they don’t, the Coyotes should be in good shape for years to come.
