Trevor Murphy has accepted the Arizona Coyotes' qualifying offer.

The actual amount of money that the Arizona Coyotes will pay Marian Hossa annually is just $200,000.

Hossa, who Arizona acquired from Chicago on Thursday, has three years left on his contract with a $5,275,000 cap hit. Because the contract was heavily frontloaded, Hossa's actual salary over the next three seasons is just $1 million annually. However, the Coyotes are paying even less than that because most of his remaining contract is covered by insurance. This all makes it easier for the Coyotes to stay above the salary floor while expending less money.

Jordan Oesterle will likely be battling for the seventh defenseman slot during training camp.

Arizona acquired Oesterle from Chicago Thursday afternoon. He had five goals and 15 points in 55 games with the Blackhawks in 2017-18. Coyotes GM John Chayka feels that Oesterle adds some defensive depth to the team that they lacked last season. "I think one thing we realized last year is that we really liked our (defense)," Chayka said. "When we were healthy last year, they could go toe-to-toe with any group in the league. What we found was, in the event of an injury, we didn’t have the depth to sustain and really keep that as the heartbeat of our team."

Vinnie Hinostroza might end up playing a bigger role with Arizona than he had in Chicago.

The Coyotes acquired Hinostroza from Chicago on Thursday. He averaged just 13:49 minutes per game with the Blackhawks last season. He finished with seven goals and 25 points in 50 contests, which is respectable given his playing time and it's something he has the potential to build on this season. "I think, in Chicago, so many of those guys are already established in the city and in the organization," Hinostroza said. "From talking to (Chayka), I’m really excited about the opportunity I’m going to be given and going to keep earning with hard work. I’m not going there thinking anything is going to be given to me. I’m going there with my hard work ethic and I just want to use my skill and speed and be a great teammate."

The Arizona Coyotes have dealt Jordan Maletta to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Arizona previously acquired Maletta from Columbus back in February. He had four assists in 29 AHL games last season.
Jul 12 - 3:21 PM

Jordan Oesterle has been acquired by the Arizona Coyotes.

Oesterle had five goals and 15 points in 55 games last season. He'll come with a $650,000 cap hit next season and can become an unrestricted free agent after that.
Jul 12 - 3:15 PM

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Vinnie Hinostroza from the Chicago Blackhawks.

Hinostroza, who could have become a restricted free agent this summer, signed a two-year, $3 million extension on June 15. He had seven goals and 25 points in 50 games with Chicago last season.
Jul 12 - 3:13 PM

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Marian Hossa, Vinnie Hinostroza, Jordan Oesterle and a 2019 third-round pick from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Marcus Kruger, MacKenzie Entwistle, Jordan Maletta, Andrew Campbell and a 2019 fifth-round draft pick.

Hossa isn't expected to ever play again, so this part of the trade is about moving his cap hit. He comes with a $5,275,000 cap hit for each of the next three seasons, but is only owed $1 million annually in salary, so this is a cheap way for Arizona to make sure that they remain above the salary floor.
Jul 12 - 3:12 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks are reportedly close to a trade with Arizona involving Marian Hossa's contract.

Chicago is likely to also include Vince Hinostroza in the trade. Hossa's cap hit for each of the next three seasons is $5,275,000, but his actual salary is only $1 million annually at this point, so for a smaller market team like the Coyotes, Hossa might actually provide them with some flexibility when it comes to staying over the salary floor. That's all he provides though as unfortunately Hossa isn't expected to resume his NHL career.
Jul 12 - 2:22 PM

Barrett Hayton has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Hayton had 21 goals and 60 points in 63 OHL games last season. The Coyotes surprised many when they selected Hayton with the fifth overall pick over Filip Zadina. "We are very pleased to sign Barrett to an entry-level contract," said Coyotes GM John Chayka. "Barrett is a very talented player with a great work ethic. He had a strong development camp and we look forward to his progress this season."

The Arizona Coyotes have confirmed Brad Richardson's two-year contract.

The Coyotes didn't specify Richardson's cap hit, but it's reportedly $1.25 million per year. He scored three goals and 15 points in 76 games with Arizona in 2017-18. "He wears a letter for us," Coyotes GM John Chayka said. "He's a great leader, a great person, and works extremely hard. The coach doesn't have to worry about what he's getting with Brad, night in and night out. He's a competitive player who loves to win and hates to lose. That's a big part of why we brought him back."
