Coyotes keeping Mueller; Looking for a top 6 forward and depth Dman before deadline?

Coyotes likely to hold on to Mueller
Coyotes forward Peter Mueller has been the subject of many trade rumors this season, but management appears set on sticking with him.

Various reports suggested earlier this season that the Coyotes were actively shopping Mueller in an attempt to acquire some additional fire power up front.

However, Coyotes GM Don Maloney, who has been shopping for help on the blueline, seems set on keeping his rising star.

"He's had his trials and tribulations, as do most players, but I still believe in him," Maloney told the Arizona Republic. "We need him to score, he has it in him. It's just like all young players, bringing it every night on a consistent basis whether you get 10 minutes or 20 minutes.

"I'm really encouraged by Peter's game of late. It's trending to where we need it to be, and especially these important games in the second half, he could be a very important part."

The Coyotes remain in the hunt for a depth defenseman and a top-six forward, with a move or two expected closer to the trade deadline.
