The rumors have been swirling the past few days (and were confirmed by GMDM) that the Phoenix Coyotes were looking to add some help up front. Although many fans thought the team might make a run at a high prized scoring threat that would cost the team some of its defensive depth, Maloney once again showed some impressive savvy in reacquiring Matthew Lombardi from Toronto in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in the 2014 NHL entry draft. Yes, you read that correctly, GMDM landed Lombardi for a 4th round pick next year.

Lombardi had a career year with the Coyotes in the 2009-10 campaign with the Coyotes registering 19 goals, 34 assists and 53 points in 78 games. This quote from Maloney says it well:

We are very pleased to bring a player like Matthew back to our team. Matthew is a very strong skater who will add quickness and skill to our lineup. He is an intelligent center who will be a great addition to our team and provides us with added depth at the center position.

Lets hope he's 100%.

We loved him when he was here before.

Always nice when a fan favourite returns to the fold. Normally I'd say something like "but I hope it doesn't help your team beat mine!" except this season I'm fairly confident that help won't be necessary for the Coyotes to do that this season so I'll just leave it "I'm glad you guys got someone you like back" and then I'll stop rambling.


So yeah, I'm glad you guys got someone you like back.

Drop and I were talking about that too. Lombardi has such speed...somebody needs to be able to keep up with him so it can be utilized to he fullest.
