Coyotes: 3 Top Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024

Christmas is over, and now the new year is less than one week away. Thus, over these next few days, we here at NHL Trade Rumors will discuss the three top trade candidates from each team heading into 2024.

In this latest edition of the series, let's focus on the Arizona Coyotes. 

Karel Vejmelka: There has been a lot of trade buzz surrounding Karel Vejmelka since last season, and it has not quieted down this campaign. In fact, it has only increased with the emergence of Conor Ingram. Vejmelka would be a solid 1B netminder for a playoff team to add, so there should be interest in him. 

Matt Dumba: Matt Dumba has struggled as a Coyote thus far. Due to this and the fact that he is on a one-year deal, it would not be surprising if the Coyotes move him before the deadline, especially if they are out of the playoff race by then.

Jason Zucker: Jason Zucker is another offseason addition who could be dealt before the deadline passes. He is on a one-year deal, and he has been fairly underwhelming this season, posting just 10 points in 26 games.
