Keith Yandle D PHO 8 Days

Yandle picked up an assist on a power-play goal Thursday in a loss to Nashville. He took six shots and added two hits, but was also minus-3 on the night.

The 28 year-old is playing well right now with four points in his past five games and despite Thursday's performance he is a respectable minus-6 on the season while leading the Coyotes in points with 20, which also ties him for seventh among NHL defensemen. Yandle has one year left on his contract and should the Coyotes continue to flounder on the outside of the playoff race he could be a trade target later in the year.

Yandle factored into the scoring three times Friday, scoring a goal and adding a pair of assists in a 5-0 win over Vancouver.

This was the second three-point outing of the season for the American rearguard, who is now up to 14 points in 17 games -- good for fourth overall among league defensemen. Perhaps even more impressive is his knack for getting rubber on net, as his 62 shots put him eighth in the NHL among offensive studs like Steven Stamkos, Tyler Seguin and Phil Kessel. The 28-year-old just seems to get better and better.

Coach Dave Tippett has been experimenting with using Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson on the same defensive pairing during training camp, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Yandle worked on the left side and Ekman-Larsson handled the right in Saturday's team scrimmage, after the duo had spent the previous couple of days paired up during practices. The coaching staff is still in assessing whether or not the two can cut it defensively while working in tandem, but there's no disputing the offensive fireworks that could be harvested if the arrangement ends up panning out during the regular season. Both Yandle and Ekman-Larsson ranked in the top five among defensemen in shots on goals last season, and together, their creativity with the puck would provide a needed jolt to an attack that lacks top-flight forward talent. Yandle is probably set for a bump in scoring regardless after he posted a fluky 3.3 shooting percentage a season earlier, and a partnership with Ekman-Larsson at even strength and on the power-play could potentially push him toward a new career high.

While Keith Yandle has been a standout offensively, he really needs to work on the defensive side of his game.

Yandle led the Coyotes in points this season with 53 and was tied for the NHL lead amongst blueliners with 31 power play points as the Coyotes had the fourth most goals (tied) and the fourth best efficiency rating in the NHL on the pp. But defensively it was a different story as Yandle was a minus-23 this season. here's always that risk-reward factor in it," coach Dave Tippett said. "With Yands, his power-play play this year went to another level, went to a level we hadn't seen before. He took a responsibility for improving our power play and a leadership role and did a very good job. That being said, his defensive play is still - it's inconsistent."
