-Vintage Canuck- Posted June 14, 2017 Share Posted June 14, 2017 Quote Shane Doan has officially played for just one organization in his 21-year career, making him one of nine players in NHL history to do so. A free agent on July 1, Doan could be interested in extending his run. "He hasn't made a final decision, but I think he's leaning toward playing one more year; I think he's going to play," Doan's agent Terry Bross said, according to Craig Morgan of ArizonaSports.com. "His body feels good, he loves the game, and he loves the players." Doan spent his rookie season with the original rendition of the Winnipeg Jets in 1995-96 and has since spent 20 years with the Phoenix and Arizona Coyotes. He has served as the team's captain since 2003, making him the current longest-tenured taker of ceremonial faceoffs in the league. His seven franchise records include goals, assists, and points. In many ways, the 2016-17 season was the worst of Doan's career. He scored just six goals in 74 games, after potting 28 in 72 games a year ago. He finished the season with 27 points, his lowest full-season total since 1998-99. His average 15:03 of ice time per game was his lowest since the '98-'99 season. Doan plans on speaking more with his family before making a decision, according to Bross. The free-agent-to-be would then need to meet with Coyotes general manager John Chayka in order to see if he still fits in with the team's plans. Doan's decision is expected prior to the NHL Draft over the weekend of June 23-24, when Arizona will look to inject even more young talent into their roster. https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1318639 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
