from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,
Phoenix Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said he wants to sit down and discuss a new contract with captain Shane Doan before training camp begins.
“I would like to start dialogue to see where he is at, and what he is thinking,” Maloney said. “He is certainly a guy we would like to re-sign, and I would rather do it now and not next June 30.”
Doan, 34, has played his entire career with the Coyotes organization, dating to when the team was still located in Winnipeg. He moved with the team to Phoenix in 1996-97.
“He lives and dies with the Coyotes as much anyone,” Maloney said. “He’s important to us.”
