Coyotes Still Scoreless At Home; Lose 3-0 To Sabres

GLENDALE, AZ- The Arizona Coyotes returned home after a home-and-home series against the Anaheim Ducks, where they split the series 1-1.  They finally got the lid off the net for the season in Anaheim after big goals by Dylan Strome and Brad Richardson.

The Sabres would open up the scoring early in the first period (2:45) with his first goal of the season, upper right corner of the net.  It was assisted by Jeff Skinner and Even Rodrigues.

Rieder Contract Negotiations Have Reached a Resolution

Rieder Contract Negotiations Have Reached a Resolution

By Bri Wagner

Reider’s return has arrived. Monday evening brought more than a Coyotes game in Vancouver against the Canucks. In the middle of the game, apparently talks were still ongoing between Arizona and Tobias Rieder’s camp for the chance at a deal right as training camp is coming to a close. With 12 days left before the puck drops on the regular season for the Desert Dogs, a decision on whether or not Rieder would be staying in Arizona was still very uncertain as both parties seemed reluctant to budge.
