Keeping Karlsson: 31 Beats – Arizona Coyotes ft. Richard Morin

Elan Dubrofsky


In the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast’s 31 Beats series, Elan and Brian are on a league-wide odyssey to explore the fantasy present and future landscapes of each of the NHL’s 31 teams, gathering info by interviewing the people who know them best: beat writers!  


Today, AZCentral’s Richard Morin takes a break from enjoying beautiful Arizona weather to discuss what knocked the wind out of the Coyote’s sails after a promising start to the year, and whether the haters are right or wrong to blame it all on Taylor Hall. We also talk Kessel’s difficult desert debut, the chances of Hall staying a Yote, how long before we see Barrett Hayton make his mark, Keller’s ups and down, the pressures of being captain, the moment when the crease imploded, and more.  

Follow Richard on Twitter @ramorin_azc, and check out his work at The Arizona Republic.  

Players discussed on this episode include Taylor Hall, Phil Kessel, Barrett Hayton, Nick Schmaltz, Conor Garland, Lawson Crouse, Christian Dvorak, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Jakob Chychrun, Adin Hill, Antti Raanta, Darcy Kuemper and more.
