The Arizona Coyotes have been trying to successfully build through the draft and young players for a few seasons now. The Coyotes have built a good prospect pool in spite of all of the chaos with their arena and outside circumstances. Now one of these prospects is reportedly unhappy.

Since being drafted in the 3rd round of the 2018 NHL Draft Jan Jenik has been working his way through the ranks trying to get his shot in the NHL. After 2 successful seasons in the OHL with the Hamilton Bulldogs Jenik would get his first chance with the Arizona Coyotes. In his first two games with the Coyotes Jenik would get two goals.


In the following 2 seasons, Jenik would only get 15 more appearances in the NHL. In his time developing in the AHL, he had 84 points in 110 games. Jenik was developing nicely for a prospect that was drafted so late. Unfortunately for him, the Coyotes just did not want to give him consistent NHL playing time. Now Jenik is reportedly looking for a change of scenery.

Jenik Requests A Trade



According to a new report Jenik who is a restricted free agent has demanded a trade.


With Jenik being just 22 years old and showing improvement every season there will likely be teams calling to acquire him. This deal getting done will depend on how high of a price the Coyotes put on Jenik. One thing is clear Jenik is hoping for a fresh start somewhere that is willing to give him a chance to play in the NHL.
