Doan has been informed by the Coyotes that they will not be re-signing him this offseason, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The writing was likely on the wall for Doan after Arizona did not include him on its protected players list. If the 40-year-old decides to continue his career, the Golden Knights could sign him, thereby designating Doan as their selection from the Coyotes. The winger has been with the Yotes since their inception, having played his first NHL season with the original Winnipeg Jets. At this point, one would imagine Doan would like the chance to suit up for a contender after playing in a mere 55 playoffs contests -- compared to 1540 regular-season outings.

Doan remains without a contract heading into 2017-18, thus making him eligible for the Vegas expansion draft on June 21, theScore reports.

EDGE Analysis

The long-time Coyotes captain had the worst showing of his career last year, managing just six goals and 27 points. Last week, Doan reportedly told his agent that he's leaning toward playing another season, and since he's set to become an unrestricted free agent in July, the Golden Knights would earn three days of exclusive negotiation rights with him should they make him their selection in the draft. At any rate, if the Alberta native decides to stick around for one more year, it'll be interesting to see where he ends up.

According to his agent Terry Bross, Doan is leaning toward playing one more year before retiring, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Doan has spent his entire 21-year career with the same organization, making him one of just nine players in NHL history to do so. It's hard to imagine the 40-year-old forward donning a different sweater in 2017-18 if he does decide to play one final season, but it remains to be seen if he still fits into the Coyotes' plans going forward, as Arizona is a team that's more focused on developing its young talent than competing for a Stanley Cup in the immediate future. Doan is expected to make a final decision by the conclusion of the NHL draft, so his status for next season should be clear by the end of June. Either way, the aging winger only tallied 27 points in 74 games last season, so he's not a viable option in most season-long fantasy formats at this stage in his career.

Doan (lower body) will play Thursday with the Canucks in town, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Doan, who may be contemplating retirement, certainly wouldn't want to cap off an illustrious career with an injury. Look for him to slot back into a top-six role for this next contest, while doing everything in his power to finish strong.

Doan will not play in Tuesday's game against the Stars due to a lower-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

Doan is limping to the finish line in what might be his final NHL season. He was able to return last Friday against the Capitals, but apparently he either aggravated his previous injury, suffered a new ailment, or he experienced enough soreness to put him back on the shelf. He has two more chances to return to game action before the curtain closes on the 2016-17 season.

Doan (lower body) will suit up for Friday's game against the Capitals, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Doan -- who last saw action on March 16 -- has just six goals and 25 points in 70 games to date, but on the plus side, the veteran forward did record helpers in each of the last two games he played in.

Doan (lower body) will not be available against the Blues on Wednesday but could return to action against the Capitals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It has to be a disappoint year for Doan as injuries and the lack of talent around him likely will result in the winger tallying the second lowest point total for a season in his career -- his lowest having been the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign. Once the year wraps up, questions will no doubt start circulating about whether the 40-year-old wants to suit up for another year.

Doan (lower body) has not played since March 16 and he remains frustrated by his late-season injury, Sarah McClellan of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 40-year-old might be playing in his final NHL season, adding to the sting of the injury. He has recently been able to take part in the team's group skate, but a timetable on a game return is uncertain. It would be a shame to see the venerable right winger go out like this, so hopefully he'll be able to get out on the ice for a game or two before the curtains falls on the 2016-17 season, and perhaps his career.

Doan (lower body) will not be ready to go for Monday's game in St. Louis, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Coyotes have elected to keep Doan off the ice for a couple days in hope that it will help his lower-body injury heal. Either way, the veteran winger does not present enough fantasy value even when healthy, so he can be safely ignored in most formats.

Doan (lower body) won't play Saturday against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The Coyotes have already been eliminated from playoff contention, so there's no reason for them to rush Doan back into the lineup. The 40-year-old forward's next chance to return to game action will come Monday against the Blues.
