Fantasy Summary

An intelligent defenseman, Mayo is good in his own zone and despite scoring during his first NHL game, does not provide much offense.

July 2022- Behind only Karel Vejmelka, Mayo was the second biggest surprise for the Coyotes last year. Looking like a possible career minor leaguer, when injuries hit Arizona’s blueline, Mayo was recalled after just two games with Tucson and never looked back. He would go on to play 67 games in his rookie NHL season, recording four goals and eight assists. Mayo would play significant minutes for the Coyotes with only Jakob Chychurn, Shayne Gostisbehere and Anton Stralman having a higher TOI/GP. Throw in Chychurn was hurt most of the year and Mayo served as the team’s third defenseman for much of the season. He also got to suit up for Team Canada at the IIHF World Championship, contributing a goal and assist in 10 games. Armed now with a three-year, one-way deal signed last February, Mayo looks to be a part of the Coyotes defense corps for the future. Keith Duggan

March 2022- Mayo has established himself as an NHL defenseman. While he’ll never put up huge offensive numbers, Mayo has been a key player on Arizona’s penalty kill and leads the team in blocked shots with 95. The Coyotes rewarded him with a three-year contract. Keith Duggan

October 2021- With the Coyotes looking for some depth on their blue line, Mayo was recalled from Tucson. It’s been a long journey for Mayo to get here. Seven years after being drafted by Arizona and 258 AHL games to go along with 25 ECHL contests, he found out in first practice with the Coyotes he would be playing the next day. While Mayo has never shown much offense in the AHL, to make the feel-good story even better, he scored in his first game with the team, an eventual 5-1 loss to Edmonton. The goal was great to see but don’t look for big offensive numbers from Mayo. Expect more peripheral stats like blocked shots and hits than goals. Keith Duggan

September 2021- Mayo has signed another one-year, two-way contract with Arizona. While he doesn’t provide much offense, Mayo is an excellent leader and team player who’s good in his own zone for Tucson. He’s eligible for Group Six unrestricted free agency next summer. Keith Duggan

October 2020- The Coyotes have signed Mayo to another one-year, two-way contract. While an excellent leader and team player for Tucson it’s hard to see him possibly getting a chance called up and contributing offensively in the NHL. He has just 38 points in four years of AHL action and shouldn’t be a player you target in dynasty fantasy leagues. Keith Duggan

August 2019- Mayo is a solid team guy and important player for Tucson but his status as a top defensemen prospect for the Coyotes seems to have dissolved. He played tough minutes and was a leader for Tucson, offensively though he didn’t offer much, scoring two goals and six points in 67 games. The Coyotes re-signed him to a one-year, two-way contract this summer and he’s a leading candidate to be named team captain for Tucson but at this point he’s pretty far down the depth chart to be considered a solid NHL prospect anymore. Keith Duggan

June 2018- Mayo took a big leap last year from the previous season where he mostly played in the ECHL. He took on a big role with Tucson and provided solid offense from the back-end with five goals and 16 points in 66 games along with a healthy 45 PIM’s. Mayo played over some AHL vets and even once Coyote top prospect Kyle Wood. He still seems to be a long shot to make the NHL though and offers little fantasy hope if Mayo does make it to the big show.  Keith Duggan

April 2017- Mayo spent most of his first pro season in the ECHL as Tucson played with several veterans, and when he did suit up in the AHL it was bottom pairing minutes. His numbers were good in the ECHL for the Rapid City Rush (1-15-16 in 25 games) but not surprisingly Mayo’s totals with Tucson weren’t as good (1-2-3 in 25 games). Expect him to see a expanded role in the AHL for 2017-18 but as of now seems like a long shot to make the NHL. Keith Duggan

April 2016- With the Edmonton Oil Kings being knocked out of the WHL playoff’s by Brandon, Dysin Mayo’s junior career is most likely over and he will report to the Springfield Falcons to finish off the 2015-16 season. He finished second on Edmonton with 37 assists and third on the team in points (6-37-43). The Coyotes fifth round pick in 2014, leaves the Edmonton Oil Kings posting 28-106-134 in 248 games for the team. Keith Duggan

December 2015- The Coyotes have signed their 2014 fifth round pick Dysin Mayo, to a three-year entry-level contract. Mayo currently ranks second on his Edmonton Oil Kings in assists and third on the team in points (1-21-22). With a solid all-around game, Mayo is looking like he could be possibly a late round gem for the Coyotes. Keith Duggan

April 2015- Dysin Mayo had a very impressive 2014-15 season for the Edmonton Oil Kings. He was counted on as one of the teams top defencemen, playing a solid all-around game for the Oil Kings. He took on a increased role in the offense, bringing his point totals up from 35 in 2013-14, to 51 this past year, good for 11th in the WHL for defenceman. Mayo’s going to need a few more years of development but he could be a potential sleeper pick. Keith Duggan

June 2014- The Arizona Coyotes drafted Dysin Mayo with their fifth round choice, 133rd overall in the 2014 NHL entry draft. Keith Duggan

June 2014 – Few players in the 2014 NHL Draft class capitalized and shone as bright as Edmonton Oil Kings defenseman Dysin Mayo did when presented with opportunity. Mayo helped propel his Oil Kings to a WHL and CHL Memorial Cup Championships with him solidifying a strong blue line. As the season unfolded, Edmonton leaned on Dysin Mayo and gave him more responsibility on both sides of the puck and the 17-year-old defenseman didn’t disappoint. Blessed with strong mobility and impressive creativity, Mayo’s offensive skill set has been intriguing for a while but it was his dedication to defending and showing that he can be an effective two-way defenseman that has him considered a potential second round prospect for the upcoming draft. Teams looking for a toolsy defender with big upside, should have Dysin Mayo on their radar. Brendan Ross
