Dzingel, who played 26 games and recorded 7 points in his first stint with the Coyotes in the 2021-22 season, was cut short of making his return to the desert hockey club. His last team that he played for was the Chicago Wolves in the American Hockey League.

As for Harper, he has yet to suit up in an NHL jersey with him splitting time in the AHL, East Coast Hockey League and in Sweden.

Former 2016 first-round draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks, Juolevi, will not be with the Coyotes this season. He was a Florida Panther for 10 games and a Detroit Red Wing for 8 in the 2021-22 season before playing last season in the AHL with Anaheim Ducks minor league affiliate, the San Diego Gulls.

Strand was a teammate with Juolevi on the Gulls last year as he had 8 points in 46 games.

All four are free agents and can choose to sign with whichever team that offers a contract, whether in North America or overseas.
