The summer of hockey is always an exciting one, with plenty of twists, turns, shocking moves and blockbuster deals, and while this one may not seem like a big deal, it could be a franchise changer for an NHL team.

No to the desert

According to a recent report, John Farinacci, who was one of the Arizona Coyotes top prospects is rejecting a deal with Arizona to become a free agent after he was a third round pick of the team back in 2019.


After a solid career at Harvard where Farinacci was the teams captain and scored 61 points in 79 career games with the team, and now, he will hit the open market as the top college free agent out there.

Contrary to previous information, John Farinacci had indicated to #Yotes       that he will turn pro with another team.

He will become a free agent on August 15 unless Arizona trades his rights.

Two parties very interested



With plenty of experience, leadership and a great shot (25 goals in under a full NHL season's worth of games), Farinacci is now reportedly drawing interest from both the Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins.

Both teams would be appealing to him, as former teammate Matt Coronato is expected to be a huge part of the Flames future, while Boston is close to where he played at Harvard, so expect plenty of interest around him in the coming weeks.
