It seems like this deal is going to happen but has not been made official yet. If you remember earlier in the week, I wrote a story about how Boedker and the Coyotes were trying to get a deal done. Boedker is a young player at 23 years old and played well last season. He had seven goals and 26 points in 48 games.
According to Capgeek.com, Mikkel Boedker made $1.2 million last season and had an annual cap hit of $1.1 million. With Boedker most likely coming back, the Coyotes are pretty much set going into training camp. Phoenix is looking to have a big year and can with the new division realignment across the NHL. Can they make the playoffs? Possibly but the games are played on the ice and not on paper.
