BREAKING: The Coyotes will forfeit two draft picks as penalty for violating the NHL's combine testing policy.

will forfeit two draft picks after the NHL found the team violated the combine testing policy during the 2019-20 season.

In a statement, the NHL said the Coyotes will forfeit their 2020 second-round pick and their 2021 first-round pick. No discipline will be handed down on any specific individuals involved in the case. The decision to punish the Coyotes this way was made by commissioner Gary Bettman after a hearing on Aug. 6. In that hearing, which included testimony from representatives of the NHL and Coyotes, the team “acknowledged that it had violated the Policy by conducting physical testing on 2020 draft-eligible players prior to the Combine,” the NHL’s statement said.

“While the Combine Testing Policy Memoranda reference a fine of ‘no less than $250,000 for each violation’ of the Policy, I exercise my discretion to impose the aforementioned discipline — which I consider to be more appropriate given the specific circumstances of this case,” Bettman said in his ruling.

“As for the Club personnel who participated in, or may have contributed to, the Club’s violation of the Policy, I have decided that no discipline shall be imposed on these individuals.

They had it coming. This wasn't an accident comment in the media that could be fined for tampering, this was very organized and premeditated. Just get one with it and move this dumpster fire to Indianapolis or almost anywhere else.

Ouch, heavy penalty

Givem to the Kracken!

Tough times for an organization that is just starting to get its feet on the ground. I feel bad for our new owner who has been dealt a very bad hand since acquiring the team.

What New York team is receiving both of them? Or will it be Chicago or LA?

Move them to Hartford

Nice ! Major League Baseball could learn some thing from the NHL. On-ice infractions and suspensions not so much!

Move them to Quebec City

Big punishment. I like it

Lol, damn. That's a huge penalty. What placement of draft picks would they be?

What a bunch of idiots.

There is no way Chayka didn't know this was happening. He should be fined himself being that he's left the organization

Howl yeah

This entire organization is a joke from the top to the bottom. Besides cheating, they let a top GM walk and shame him on his way out. They’ve been bailed out time and time again by Bettman. They mortgage the future of the team thinking Hall would actually sign there long term

dmwatkins9 ouch

Ouch 😆 Won't make that mistake twice...

What happens if its a lottery pick?

So who gets the picks?


So this is why Chyka took his ball and ran... makes sense now.
