The Arizona Coyotes had a very nice start to the season. They were consistently in or close to a playoff spot for the first half of the year.

Since then, they have fallen off a little bit. They are certainly not a bottom-feeder anymore but at 25-31-5 (55 points), they are not looking like a playoff team.

With the March 8th trade deadline fast approaching, they are going to be sellers. They have a lot of players that contenders might consider taking a look at.

If they are to move some of their players for future assets, these three are the most likely to go:

Jason Zucker might be great for someone looking for forward depth

Jason Zucker has been around the NHL a little bit now. He has had great tenures with the Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh Penguins, and now the Arizona Coyotes.

On Tuesday night, we learned that he was being held out of their game against the Chicago Blackhawks for trade-related reasons. He is as good as gone now.

Zucker will provide depth and a scoring touch to someone's middle six. He is fast and can defend too so there is no reason not to consider him.

This is a player with a lot of experience in the league and he is hungry to win. You can tell by the way that he works so hard on every one of his shifts.

In 51 games played this season, he has 9 goals and 16 assists for 25 points. You can expect that production to increase if he goes to a team that puts better players around him regularly. A player with his type of motor will also pay dividends in the postseason.
