Visits to the Valley helped Arizona Coyotes sign Alex Goligoski, Jamie McGinn — It's been four years since the Coyotes have made the playoffs, an outbreak of losses escalating into a rebuild that is still in progress. They've reorganized their management structure by dismissing a tenured veteran and replacing him with the youngest general manager in league history.

Arizona Coyotes sign Jakob Chychrun to entry-level contract — A month after trading for another first-round pick to draft defenseman Jakob Chychrun, the Coyotes signed the prospect to a three-year, entry-level contract Saturday to solidify a future option on the blue line. "We are very pleased to sign Jakob to an entry-level contract," General Manager John Chayka said in a statement released by the team.

Arizona Coyotes' Michael Stone continues to improve after knee surgery — Having never navigated the rehab from ACL and MCL surgery before, Coyotes defenseman Michael Stone isn't exactly sure when he'll be able to return to game action. But he does feel his knee is healing properly. "I'm doing really good actually," Stone said. "I think my knee is coming along nicely."

Arizona Coyotes' defense becoming clearer with Connor Murphy, Michael Stone signings — Despite the additions the Coyotes have made to their defense this offseason, a few holes - two to be exact - still lingered in the lineup. But after re-signing restricted free agents Connor Murphy and Michael Stone on Thursday, the unit seems set - or at least very close to being NHL-ready.

Arizona Diamondbacks receiving multiple calls on pitchers ahead of trade deadline — Diamondbacks General Manager Dave Stewart has been fielding multiple calls leading up to Monday's non-waiver trade deadline with inquiries appearing to focus on the team's pitching staff - from up-and-coming arms to established veterans.

Robbie Ray's strong start derailed by Arizona Diamondbacks' bullpen — The Diamondbacks concluded their four-game tour of Milwaukee with a 6-4 loss that - for the second time in the series - put an unflattering spotlight on the bullpen.

Arizona Coyotes sign Connor Murphy to six-year contract — After weeks of negotiating, the Coyotes finally reached a resolution with restricted free agent Connor Murphy, locking up the defenseman Thursday with a six-year contract. "We are extremely pleased to sign Connor to a long-term contract," General Manager John Chayka said in a statement released by the team.

Arizona Diamondbacks have things bounce their way in win over Milwaukee Brewers — An opportunistic offense, shaky Brewers defense and strong performance by right-hander Archie Bradley were key in an 8-1 rout at Miller Park to secure only the Diamondbacks' second win in their last eight games.

Arizona Diamondbacks' Daniel Hudson 'at a loss of words' over recent struggles — MILWAUKEE - In the month-plus since he tripped into this funk, Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson has searched for solutions and experimented with adjustments - at times even meriting praise for how his stuff has looked while clearly still struggling to find his form.

Arizona Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke scheduled to make rehab start Friday in Arizona League — MILWAUKEE - Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Greinke is scheduled to make a rehab start Friday in the Arizona League at Salt River Fields, the next step in his recovery from a left oblique strain. Greinke will throw 60 pitches in the game and if all goes well, he could rejoin the Diamondbacks.
