Doan's agent, Terry Bross, confirmed to the Arizona Republic that a total of 11 teams have inquired about the veteran forward, who could in fact delay negotiations with other clubs due to a recent change in the ownership situation.
While Monday was set to be the deadline for signatures for a petition to make potential owner Greg Jamison's lease agreement a referendum in November, organizers have now stated that they have until next Monday July 16 to submit the signatures.
Beyond the potential of a changing date is a shifting target in the number of signatures required. Organizers hinted that the total number of signatures required is now lower than what was previously announced.
Neither announcement is an encouraging sign for Doan's future in Phoenix. The 35-year-old is reportedly upset about possibly leaving the organization, who selected him in the first round, 17th overall more than 17 years ago.
"It's heartbreaking for him. Heartbreaking," Bross said.
"He's such a loyal guy. He views the team like it's his own franchise, from the equipment manager to the trainer to the people taking tickets."
Doan is seeking a multi-year contract to avoid any inflexible changes a new CBA might include, but is reluctant to do so with the Coyotes, who could potentially relocate after next season due to unresolved ownership.
His leadership abilities are a high selling point across the league, though his agent has made it clear the captain's heart is in Phoenix and that he will stay there if a deal can be settled.
In 79 games with the Coyotes this past season, Doan recorded 22 goals and 28 assists for 50 points.
