While both the Coyotes and Blue Jackets made significant changes from head coaches to positions all over the ice, neither team sees this as a ticket to the draft lottery.
Columbus revamped its roster while head coach Brad Larsen took over the helm. Right-winger Jakub Voracek, who returned to Columbus on a trade after a 10-year absence, is hoping to help the team get back on track after missing the playoffs.
“Everyone says it’s rebuilding,” said Voracek Brian Hedger of Columbus Dispatch. “Well, if it’s a remodel, why would Jarmo (Kealainen) swap for a 32-year-old gamer worth $ 8.25 million, you know? I feel like they want me to be the type of guy to lead the guys through for the next couple of years. And I take it as a great opportunity. “
The Blue Jackets begin with a redesigned Arizona team coming to Columbus with two new goalkeepers. The Coyotes traded Darcy Kuemper and let Antti Raanta go free. It will fall on Carter Hutton and Josef Korrenar to stop for the Coyotes.
Arizona made many changes elsewhere in the roster, hiring Andre Tourigny to coach the team. He has veteran Phil Kessel and a variety of young players to work with. The Coyotes got off to a promising start with a 5-1 mark in the preseason.
“We practice hard; We don’t take any shifts or any part of the drill, “Coyotes General Manager Bill Armstrong said on Field Level Media on WGN Radio 720.” That was one of the reasons I liked (Tourigny) a lot, and I said so a couple of times: where there is a lot of responsibility, but when he pushes it, there is a certain sympathy on the other side. “
The Coyotes also brought in players who were on the other side in the NHL – they played for Stanley Cups with their previous teams. The new coyotes Anton Stralman, Andrew Ladd, Liam O’Brien, Jay Beagle and Travis Boyd have all made or won the Stanley Cup final.
“If you bring a championship pedigree or a player who has played against a lot of really good teams in his career, I think it sends a message to the whole team and our younger players,” said Tourigny, according to Jose Romero of the Arizona Republic.
Tourigny served as an assistant coach in the NHL, followed by coaches in the national team program of Hockey Canada. Larsen left the Blue Jackets bank as head coach after serving as an assistant since the 2014-2015 season.
“He was the guy you would turn to for videos, for help, for a variety of things,” Blue Jackets center Jack Roslovic said of Larsen on Field Level Media. “Now to have him head coach, it’s great because that connection is there and that comfort is there.”
