Fantasy Summary

Josh Doan plays very similar to his dad, Coyote legend Shane. His overall game and footspeed need some work but is definitely a prospect to watch as he was impressive in college.

April 2024- While many Coyote fans were excited to see Doan recalled, no one saw the absolute amazing start he has gotten off to happening. From scoring two goals in his first NHL game, to becoming the fifth active player to post multiple points in their first two NHL games, to becoming the first Coyote player to record a point in his first three NHL games, Doan has so far exceeded expectations by a mile. Keith Duggan

March 2024- News that all Coyote fans have been waiting for, Doan has been recalled to Arizona and will make his NHL debut on 3/26 against Columbus Blue Jackets. Doan was leading Tucson with 26 goals and 46 points in 62 games. He ranked first among first year skaters in goals and third in points behind Logan Stankoven and Brad Lambert. Doan will become the first player born and raised in Arizona to play for his home-state team. “He had a good camp with us, then he went down there and worked very hard, and he earned the right to be here. He deserved it,” Coyotes coach Andre Tourigny said. “I’m happy he can feel really good about himself knowing full well he earned everything he got.” Josh will be following the same path as his father, Coyotes legend Shane Doan, who spent his entire 21-season career with Arizona/Winnipeg organization. Keith Duggan

January 2024- Currently leading Tucson in goals with 15 in 38 games, Doan is in the middle of an excellent rookie pro campaign. Those 15 tallies are also tied for second with Shane Wright in rookie AHL scoring. Possessing an NHL quality shot, Doan is quickly establishing his power game in the pro ranks. Not surprising the young forward even as a rookie is a leader on Tucson and is heavily involved in the community. Keith Duggan

October 2023- Doan had a strong training camp with Arizona, including a hat trick in an early preseason contest with the team. The Coyotes still made the right development choice and assigned him to Tucson. He’s expected to have a big role with the AHL club. So far, he has one goal in two games with Tucson. Keith Duggan

March 2023- While the original plan was to play at least three years at ASU, Doan decided this past Tuesday (March 14th) to leave and sign his entry-level contract with Arizona. The Coyotes and their 2021 second-round pick agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract on Thursday (March 16th) and Doan will join Tucson as they push for a playoff spot in the AHL’s Pacific Division. His contract will not kick in until next season. Doan is on an amateur tryout contract in Tucson for the remainder of this campaign and will be eligible to compete if the Roadrunners make the AHL playoffs. He finished the ASU season with 16 goals and 38 points in 39 games, second on the team in points. Doan started the year slowly offensively but came on as the campaign progressed. He had six goals and 10 points in his last five contests, 16 the last 10 games. He’ll need to still improve his skating, but Josh plays a very similar style to that of his dad, Coyote legend Shane Doan. Keep an eye on him, this could be a prospect who makes some noise soon, especially on a rebuilding club like Arizona. Keith Duggan

November 2022- While not racking up the points like last year, Doan is still playing well and is one of ASU’s best players. His four goals and 12 points are tied for tops in scoring on Arizona State University. The whole ASU team has struggled scoring but is starting to come around, led by their captain Doan, who has six points in his last five contests. Keith Duggan

June 2022- Doan finished 2021-22 as not only one of ASU’s top players but one of NCAA’s best rookies. His 37 points in 34 contests were good for second among rookie NCAA players, with his 25 assists as the best. Throw in 54 penalty minutes and you have yourself a potential future NHL power forward. Keith Duggan

March 2022- Doan has kept up his strong play all year, still contributing consistent offensive numbers. His 35 points in 33 games is good for 30th in NCAA scoring, fifth among under-20 players. For good measure throw in his 54 penalty minutes placing him 24th in the league. The Coyotes are pleased with Doan’s play so far but have no plans on signing him yet, letting him develop at least one more year at Arizona State University. Keith Duggan

October 2021- Doan has started this campaign on fire, racking up four goals and 12 points in eight games. That is good for fourth in NCAA scoring. He’s proving last year in the USHL was no fluke. What also looked like a maybe a few months ago seems more real now as Doan has a legit chance to play for Team USA at the 2022 World Junior Championship. Keith Duggan

September 2021- While there was some buzz going into the 2021 NHL Draft about Josh Doan, son of Coyotes legend Shane, most thought he was picked too high (second-round, 37th overall). Arizona though insisted this was no marketing ploy. “I think if it was a favor it would have been done last year” said director of amateur scouting Darryl Plandowski. “In the end, we just said ‘Josh is too good to pass up.” Doan is a classic late bloomer. He went undrafted in 2020 after Doan played limited minutes and didn’t put up many points for the Chicago Steel. It was a different story last season though, as he was one of the Steel’s and USHL’s best players, exploding for 31 goals and 70 points. That was good for third in USHL scoring. Josh plays very similar to his dad: he displays good offensive creativity, generating chances for himself and others. He works hard, goes to the to the net, wins battles along the boards and is solid defensively. The biggest drawback is his skating, but Shane wasn’t a great skater either and it didn’t hold him back. He’ll stay close to home this coming year, playing for Arizona State University. Keith Duggan
