Coyotes Acquire Nemeth & Two Draft Picks from Rangers

The Arizona Coyotes are nowhere close to being finished with their offseason histrionics.

Arizona acquired defenseman Patrik Nemeth, a 2025 second-round draft pick, and a conditional 2026 second-round draft pick from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Ty Emberson on Thursday, general manager Bill Armstrong announced.

The 30-year-old Nemeth comes to the Arizona Coyotes with some heat, which means playoff experience. He appeared in five games during the Rangers’ surprising run to the Eastern Conference final this past season, falling in six games to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Nemeth, of Stockholm, Sweden, was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the second round (41st overall) in the 2010 NHL Draft and notched two goals and five assists in 63 regular-season games in 2021-22. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound defenseman enters the upcoming season with 65 points (10 goals, 55 assists) in 429 career games with the Dallas Stars, Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, and New York Rangers.

Emberson, a career minor leaguer, was the Coyotes’ No. 73 pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The defenseman has appeared in 63 AHL games with the Tucson Roadrunners from 2020-22, scoring 12 points (five goals, seven assists).

While the Coyotes have spent a considerable amount of time adding players this offseason, one has decided to take his efforts back to where the original Yotes were founded.

Defenceman Kyle Capobianco agreed to a two-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night. The deal is worth $1.525 million and carries an average annual value of $762,500.
