Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Heading to Winnipeg

Capobianco signed a two-year, $1.525 million contract with the Jets on Thursday. Capobianco's deal is two-way in 2022-23 and one-way in 2023-24. The 24-year-old defenseman had nine points in 45 games with the Coyotes last season, finally earning a semi-regular spot in the lineup. Given the structure of his deal, he'll likely see time at AHL Manitoba in the upcoming season.

Kyle Capobianco: Omitted from qualifying offer list

Capobianco was not among the players given qualifying offers by the Coyotes, meaning he'll become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday. Capobianco played in more than 10 NHL games this season for the first time in his five-year career, appearing in 45 contests in which he set new personal bests in goals (two), assists (seven) and shots (40). Still, the 24-year-old blueliner shouldn't be expected to suddenly become an offensive powerhouse and figures to offer no more than mid-range fantasy value, at best, regardless of where he signs.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Helpers in back-to-back games

Capobianco notched an assist and two hits in Friday's 5-4 win over the Predators. Capobianco closed out the season on a positive note with four helpers in his last seven outings. The 24-year-old defenseman has yet to take enough of a step forward to be more than a third-pairing option, and he was seemingly surpassed by Janis Moser and Dysin Mayo (upper body) during the season. Capobianco ended the campaign with nine points, 46 blocked shots, 43 hits, 40 shots on net, 38 PIM and a minus-12 rating through a career-high 45 contests.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Logs helper

Capobianco produced an assist and four PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars. Capobianco has three assists in his last six games after a months-long drought on offense. The 24-year-old defenseman is up to eight points, 46 blocked shots, 41 hits, 40 shots on net and 38 PIM through 44 outings.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Two assists in loss

Capobianco registered two assists in Monday's 5-3 loss to Carolina. Capobianco picked up his first point since Nov. 27, logging an assist on a Loui Eriksson goal. He wouldn't wait nearly as long for his next one, setting up Alex Galchenyuk less than three minutes later. In his first full NHL season, the 24-year-old Capobianco has averaged 15:52 in 38 games, recording two goals and five assists.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Lacking offense in regular role

Capobianco has not earned a point in his last 17 games. Capobianco has played in the Coyotes' last three contests due to the absences of Janis Moser (upper body) and Jakob Chychrun (ankle). It hasn't led to more offense for Capobianco, who hasn't gotten on the scoresheet since he posted an assist Nov. 27 versus the Stars. His place in the lineup could be in jeopardy again once the Coyotes get their injured blueliners back, but most fantasy managers won't notice if Capobianco makes the trek to the press box more regularly. He's stuck on five points with 21 shots on net, 26 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 25 outings.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Set for increased role

Capobianco played 13:45 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Kings. Capobianco had been competing with Ilya Lyubushkin for one spot in the lineup, but the latter was traded to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Capobianco should at least see a short-term bump in playing time, though the Coyotes may eventually recall Victor Soderstrom from AHL Tucson to get more top-level experience. Through 21 contests, Capobianco has five points, 17 shots on net, 21 blocked shots, 16 hits and a minus-5 rating in a bottom-four role.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Clears protocols

Capobianco (COVID-19 protocols) was activated from the non-roster list Tuesday, per CapFriendly. Capobianco is likely to return to a depth role for the Coyotes, as he'll have to compete for playing time on the third pairing. The 24-year-old is at five points and a minus-8 rating through 15 contests.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Added to protocols list

Capobianco entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday. Capobianco will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before returning to action, so he'll miss Saturday's game versus Nashville at a minimum. Capobianco's only picked up five points while posting a minus-8 rating through 15 contests this campaign, so his absence will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Plucks apple in loss

Capobianco registered an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Stars. It was a solid game for the Coyotes' third defense pairing, as both Capobianco and Anton Stralman were on the ice for the team's two goals. It was a Capobianco shot that Travis Boyd tipped in it at 4:24 of the second period. Through seven contests, Capobianco has five points, seven shots on net, a plus-4 rating and six hits. He's seeing power-play time on the second unit despite limited usage overall -- the Ontario native could be helpful defensive depth in deeper fantasy formats.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Overtime hero Sunday

Capobianco scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Kings. Play continued as the referee didn't signal a goal on Capobianco's shot at 3:24 of overtime, but a review later confirmed the tally. The 24-year-old has looked solid on offense since he returned from a lower-body injury. Capobianco has two goals, two assists, six shots on net, a plus-1 rating and four blocked shots through five appearances.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Notches assist

Capobianco posted an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets. Capobianco has collected a point in all three of his games this season (one goal, two helpers). The 24-year-old blueliner has added four shots on net, three blocked shots and two hits despite a very limited role on the third pairing. If he continues to produce, head coach Andre Tourigny will likely give him more responsibility, though Jakob Chychrun and Shayne Gostisbehere are the top-two left-shot blueliners on the roster.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Buries power-play goal

Capobianco scored a power-play goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Blues. Capobianco got things started at 7:37 of the first period in what became a surprising win for the Coyotes. The 24-year-old defenseman now has a goal and an assist through two appearances this year. He began the year with a lower-body injury that cost him nearly a month, but he will likely play more often than not going forward, even if he's limited to third-pairing work.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Collects assist Friday

Capobianco logged a power-play assist and two hits in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks. It was a solid season debut for the oft-injured defenseman, who set up Andrew Ladd's tally in the third period. Capobianco had just one goal in 14 contests across small portions of the last four seasons. The 24-year-old will begin in a limited role this year and may still have to fend off Cam Dineen for playing time.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Making NHL debut Friday

Capobianco will make his NHL debut Friday in Chicago, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports. It's a long-awaited debut for the blueliner, who's definitely earned his stripes in the AHL with 112 points in 151 games with AHL Tucson since 2017-18. Most recently, Capobianco had two goals and 11 assists in 20 games with the Roadrunners last season.

Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Clear of injury, hits waivers

Capobianco (lower body) was activated from injured reserve then placed on waivers Sunday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports. Capobianco is about as irrelevant as it gets from a fantasy standpoint. He's only played in 14 NHL games since the start of 2017, posting a single goal on 14 shots to go with 14 hits.
