I hope everyone is having a great summer and welcome to another installment of 30 in 30 with the Arizona Coyotes: August version. A solid argument could be made the Coyotes have the best group of prospects in the NHL, a crop especially deep at forward. Defense was their weakest position but that was improved upon this past draft as the team picked up some excellent pieces, mainly Jakob Chychrun and Cam Dineen and trading for Anthony DeAngelo along with acquiring Kyle Wood at the 2016 trade deadline. Goalie would seem to be their weak spot now but Adin Hill shows potential and Marek Langhamer put up good stats in the ECHL during his rookie pro season. Center would be the Coyotes deepest position with Dylan Strome, Christian Dvorak and Clayton Keller three of the best prospects in the league. There is a good chance Dvorak plays LW for the Coyotes during 2016-17 since there is no doubt in my mind he makes the big club, but with Antoine Vermette recently getting bought out that could change. Here is a depth chart of the Coyotes prospects by position.
