A sub-par power play has plagued the Phoenix Coyotes for many years. As discussed earlier today, the Coyotes have only been able to crack the top 20 in power play percentage twice since moving to Glendale. They were in the top half of the league only once when they ranked 11th during the 2007-2008 season. This article will discuss the future of the Coyotes power play as well as offer possible solutions to cure its ineptitude.
The future for the power play looks bright as help could be on the way. Oliver Ekman-Larsson is already one of the bets young defensemen in the NHL and can quarterback a top line power play. Ekman-Larsson has eight power play points last season which was 25 percent of his offensive production; an improvement from 18 percent the previous season.
