Coyotes re-sign Shane Doan to a one-year deal.

 THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC: Sources indicate the Arizona Coyotes re-signed right wing and long-time captain Shane Doan to a one-year, bonus-laden contract. “The deal contains a base salary of $2.5 million, a source said, a deferred signing bonus and incentives that essentially amount to $5 million”

 

SPECTOR’S NOTE: That’s a reasonable deal for Doan, who turns 40 this fall and is coming off a 28-goal, 47-point performance in 2015-16. There was never any doubt he and the Coyotes would reach an agreement on a new deal. 

 

THE BUFFALO NEWS: Charges against Sabres center Ryan O’Reilly of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident were dismissed yesterday after the only witness to the event claimed she didn’t see anyone in O’Reilly’s truck after it slammed into a London, On. Tim Horton’s restaurant last July.
