Coyotes believed to have fitness tested at least 20 draft eligible players
Dreger revealed some new information Saturday morning.
"Sources say it's believed there are at least 20 incidents of the Arizona Coyotes fitness testing draft eligible players. NHL deputy commissioner, Bill Daly and NHL lawyers are now managing the case," Dreger wrote on Twitter.
He added that each violation can carry a fine of $250,000 or more as club management and amateur scouts around the league await the league's ruling. There is no timeline for when a decision may be reached.
"We are aware of the reports," the Coyotes said in a statement last month. "We have discussed the matter with the NHL and we will have no further comment at this time.”
The Coyotes have one pick in the first three rounds of this year's draft after trading their first-rounder to the New Jersey Devils to acquire Taylor Hall last month and their third-rounder to Colorado for Carl Soderberg last summer.
