Penguins trade Kessel to Coyotes for Galchenyuk

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Coyotes were one of the NHL's best defensive teams last season while just missing their first playoff appearance in six years.

The biggest reason they came up short: Lack of scoring.

The Coyotes took a step toward shoring up their long-standing scoring woes on Saturday, acquiring productive winger Phil Kessel from the Pittsburgh Penguins for center Alex Galchenyuk.
