The result wasn't a victory, but defenseman Dysin Mayo enjoyed a moment he'll never forget. A former fifth-round draft pick (133rd overall) in 2014, Mayo made his NHL debut on Thursday night and potted the lone Coyotes goal.

The blueliner joined the Coyotes earlier this week having 258 AHL games and 25 ECHL games to his name. He made the most of his first crack in the National Hockey League by becoming just the eighth defenseman in franchise history to light the lamp in his inaugural game at the highest level.

"He is a really nice young man who works really hard and is a warrior," said Head Coach André Tourigny. "Everybody cheers for him. He is the kind of guy that you want to have success. He had a scoring chance early in the game and obviously had his goal in the third period, so I'm happy for him."

However, the Oilers edged the Coyotes in aggregate, and leave the Valley one of two eight-point teams in the NHL. Warren Foegele tallied first with under two minutes to play in the opening frame that gave the Oilers a lead they'd never look back from.

Zach Hyman and Connor McDavid each notched a goal in the second period that widened the Coyotes deficit to 3-0 after 40 minutes of play.

"We're happy about the way that we defended [McDavid and Draisaitl], the pride we have to play the right way against them," said Tourigny. "That was cool to see the boys really tuned in and work really hard at it. There's a lot of good things we did in that game. It was more consistent, it was more structured. We need to find a way to score goals and to make the little things that will make a difference. But I thought we did a lot of good things."

Mayo's goal just 1:25 into the third period gave Arizona a spark, but it would not ignite a rally. Edmonton took advantage of two power-play opportunities and extended its lead to 5-1 before the final buzzer. 

"Obviously it's a tough pill to swallow but I think today we didn't play that bad," said Dmitrij Jaskin. "I think we played pretty well, and we deserve a little more. We should've capitalized on those scoring chances, and I think we would be in better shape but that didn't happen, so we just have to keep working on it."

Tourigny's Take: "I think we had a really good first period. They were opportunistic on their chance, and in the second period the short-handed goal was a big swing. Our power play was confident and we've played well on our power play so far this year, but instead of getting back in the game, you give them a bigger lead, so that was a big swing. But I liked the way the guys responded in the third. We came back and were two shots away from tying the game, but unfortunately when our penalty killing was counted upon, we couldn't get it done."

Dysin Mayo said: "I think when you get that many power plays in a row, and you can't get a goal off of them, it kills the momentum. Overall, we did a good job of sticking with it and we were confident going into the third period. In the end, it was their power play that killed us."

Notable: 

•    Dysin Mayo is the first Coyotes defenseman to score in his NHL debut since Tony DeAngelo (Nov. 8, 2016), and the eighth defenseman in franchise history to do so. Mayo is the first Coyotes/Jets skater to score in his NHL debut since Jan Jenik (May 7, 2021), and 27th overall.

•   Per NHL PR, only 10 defensemen have scored in their NHL debut (regular season or postseason) since the start of 2017-18.

•   Mayo is one of three rookie defensemen to score so far this season (Jamie Drysdale, Bowen Byram).

•    Ryan Dzingel and Andrew Ladd assisted on Mayo's marker. The assist was Dzingel's 100th in his career, while Ladd's 290th (first with Arizona).
