Boedker, Coyotes still talking contract
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Phoenix Coyotes are still hoping to get restricted free agent forward Mikkel Boedker before players report to training camp on Sept. 11.

Boedker, 23, registered seven goals and a career-high 19 assists for 26 points in 48 games with the Coyotes last season.

"There's still time before camp starts," Coyotes Assistant GM Brad Treliving told the Arizona Republic last week. "There's still time before we play games that count for points. We'd like to get it done. It's not done, but we'll continue to sort of grind away at it here."

Boedker is coming off a two-year, $2.2 million contract, and is believed to be looking for a long-term deal.

"We want Mikkel here, and Mikkel wants to be here," Treliving said. "There's always urgency on both sides. On the same token, you have to do something that makes sense. We'll continue to work at it."

Meanwhile, the Coyotes are reportedly inviting unrestricted free agent Guillaume Latendresse to training camp.

Latendresse, 26, spent last season with the Ottawa Senators, where he earned a base salary of $1.25 million, along with an additional $750,000 in bonuses.
