Report: Coyotes plan to woo Alex Goligoski over 2-day visit
General manager John Chayka sent a fifth-round pick to the Dallas Stars for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent's negotiating rights, and the club plans to make the most of the opportunity to sign Goligoski to a new deal.
From ESPN's Pierre LeBrun:
Having traded for his rights on Thursday, the Arizona Coyotes are going to host pending UFA blueliner Alex Goligoski and his wife, Amanda, on Monday and Tuesday, hoping to woo and sell him on the merits of their market and improving squad.
Goligoski, 30, recorded five goals and 32 assists in 82 games for the Stars in 2015-16.
The Coyotes, meanwhile, have over $18 million to spend just to get to the salary cap floor.
