The Arizona Coyotes will have a decision to make on defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

There is no shortage of suitors with the National Hockey League trade deadline set for Feb. 26 at 3 p.m. ET, and the Coyotes have to determine if now is the time to deal the 26-year-old blueliner, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2019.

While the Coyotes could hang onto Ekman-Larsson for the rest of this season and make a deal in the summer, when teams may be more willing to offer want general manager John Chayka wants in return, some teams are going to want the blueliner for two playoff runs, so Arizona will receive calls.
