Doan, Coyotes to meet this week
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Arizona Coyotes are scheduled to meet with captain Shane Doan this week to discuss his future with the organization.

Doan's agent, Terry Bross, confirmed the upcoming meeting when reached by TFP Editor-in-Chief David Pagnotta.

Doan, 39, registered 28 goals and 19 assists for 47 points in 72 games with the Coyotes this season. He's in the final year of his contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

While he told NHL.com on Monday that he plans on playing next season, one league source told TFP that it is not guaranteed that he'll be back in Arizona -- though many still believe that to be the case.

"There's still some things that we have to get over, but at the same time I think I'm capable of doing (playing)," Doan told NHL.com. "Whether or not it all works out is another thing but I'm capable of doing it; just talking with my family and seeing if it was something that was doable as a group, it was. So from there we'll try to figure out the details of it. If it all works out it'd be great."

Doan made $4.55 million this season, though his salary cap hit was $5.3 million. He could earn around $4 million on his next deal.

"I enjoy playing," he said. "I'm going to play when I'm done playing in the NHL. I'll just play somewhere that no one else is watching. I love the game and it's fun to play."
