Craig Cunningham has agreed to a two-year contract to serve as a pro scout for the Arizona Coyotes.

"We're thrilled to have Craig join our hockey operations department as a pro scout," said GM John Chayka. "Craig was a smart, hard-working player with an incredible passion for the game. We're confident that he will bring those same qualities to the Coyotes in his new role and that he will be an invaluable asset to our organization. We look forward to Craig helping us in several areas and are excited that he is staying with the club." Cunningham went into cardiac arrest on the ice before an AHL game in November. He had part of his leg removed in the procedure to save his life and he has made a remarkable recovery. We wish him the best in his new role with the Coyotes.

The Florida Panthers will interview Bob Boughner for the team's vacant head coaching job this week.

The Panthers got permission from San Jose to speak to Boughner earlier this month. Boughner may be Buffalo's radar as well, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, but it's believed that the Sabres have not reached out to the Sharks yet to talk to him. Other candidates for Florida and Buffalo include Jim Montgomery, Michel Therrien and Phil Housley. Housley can't be interviewed until after the Stanley Cup Final because he is still with the Predators.

Ethan Bear and the Seattle Thunderbirds struggled in the Memorial Cup, but he is looking forward to turning pro next year.

"It has been a really exciting couple of years, but I know I still have a lot of work in front of me," Bear said. "I loved watching Edmonton play this season and I want to be a part of that. That's my goal." Bear, who will turn 20 next month, tallied 28 goals and 70 points in 67 games during the 2016-17 campaign. The talented defender also had 26 points in 17 matches during the WHL playoffs. He will probably play in the AHL if he doesn't crack Edmonton's roster.

John Klingberg wants to be a leader on the Dallas back end and his gold-medal winning performance at the World Hockey Championship should help him accomplish that goal.

He registered two goals, six points and a plus-7 rating in 10 games for Sweden at the tournament, while averaging 19:33 of ice time per contest. "When you have an opportunity to play for your country, that's an opportunity you should take," Klingberg said. "It's a high level of hockey."

John Hayden is completely focused on hockey now that he has earned a degree in political science.

He had to juggle his studies and playing for the Blackhawks after he signed a two-year deal in March. "Now that everything is officially settled down it's a relief not to have any summer classes," Hayden said. "Now it's the first time in my life I officially have just hockey on my menu." He skated in 12 games with Chicago in 2016-17 and posted four points. Hayden also dressed in one playoff match. The 22-year-old forward is hungry for more NHL action in 2017-18, but he will have to earn his spot at training camp.
