Shane Doan’s contributions to the Arizona Coyotes and the Valley go well beyond his on-ice achievements. He is the greatest captain in franchise history — a player whose relentless drive helped galvanize a less talented group of players into the greatest run in franchise history. He is an ambassador who helped end an NHL lockout and save the franchise from relocation on multiple occasions. He is an impossibly good soul whose humanity, generosity and genuine engagement with everyone he met helped him transcend a lesser-appreciated sport and somehow become a Valley icon.

On today’s PHNX Coyotes Podcast, Craig, Petey and Leah reflect on Doan’s impact in Arizona.
