Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports / Reuters

theScore is previewing each team leading up to the 2016-17 season.

The next steps in the Arizona Coyotes' rebuild will likely see another pair of rookies, Dylan Strome and Christian Dvorak, kick off their NHL careers, following in the footsteps of Max Domi and Anthony Duclair last season.

Here's what the Coyotes' lineup looks like going into the 2016-17 season:

Forwards

LW C RW
Max Domi Martin Hanzal Anthony Duclair
Jamie McGinn Dylan Strome Radim Vrbata
Tobias Rieder Christian Dvorak Shane Doan
Jordan Martinook Brad Richardson Ryan White
  • It's a mix of young and old up front, with Strome and Dvorak set to join last year's rookie crop. Left winger Tobias Rieder remains a restricted free agent. If he does not come to terms, Arizona could insert young winger Lawson Crouse. Captain Shane Doan returns for his 21st season with the franchise.

Defense

LD RD
Oliver Ekman-Larsson Connor Murphy
Alex Goligoski Michael Stone
Kevin Connauton Luke Schenn
Zbynek Michalek
  • New GM John Chayka made a bold move adding Alex Goligoski, who should provide puck-moving support behind Oliver Ekman-Larsson. On the right, Michael Stone continues to recovery from knee surgery, aiming to be ready for the season opener. Depth blue-liner Klas Dahlbeck could also draw into the lineup.

Goalies

G
Mike Smith
Louis Domingue
  • Mike Smith remains the undisputed starter, and should expect a heavy workload from head coach Dave Tippett. Still, Louis Domingue proved his worth last season, posting 15 wins in his rookie campaign.
