The Arizona Coyotes under General Manager Bill Armstrong have shown that they are willing to make a trade to get what they want.

They did it yesterday when they sent Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Conor Garland to Vancouver for the ninth overall pick at the 2021 draft, a second-round pick in 2022, a seventh-round pick in 2023, and veterans Loui Eriksson, Jay Beagle, and Antoine Roussel. And there is a very real chance the Coyotes can do it again today.

Current Coyotes Picks:

Round 2: 37 (Ottawa's through Columbus from Derek Stepan trade), 43, and 60 (from New York Islanders from Andrew Ladd trade)

Round 3: N/a

Round 4: 107 and 122 (Pittsburgh's through Alex Galchenyuk trade)

Round 5: 139

Round 6: 171

The Yotes having three second-round picks gives the Coyotes plenty of room to make moves if they come up. They could be added as a part of a package to acquire players, or they can get three prospects.

A prospect to watch in the second round is Josh Doan, son of former Captain Coyote Shane Doan. Josh Doan is a forward set to play with the ASU Sun Devils in the NCAA next season. Bob McKenzie ranked Doan at 80th overall, so expect him to fall in the late second, early third round.

Another prospect for Coyotes fans to be interested in is Finish forward Aatu Räty. Räty is the brother of Coyotes prospect Aku Räty, and he was once one of the top prospects last season. His stock has dropped after a rough 2020-21 season and he has dropped to the second round at least, but he would be an interesting gamble for the Desert Dogs.
