Only 54 players are left in the Arizona Coyotes training camp. Only 23 players will remain at the end of pre-season, meaning that the race is on for those who hope to make the team for the first time, or even just keep their spot on the roster.  After an arduous week of training, the first cuts had to be made. The following 8 players will be moved down to the Coyotes AHL team, the Portland Pirates:

Dan O’Donoghue, Forward – Portland (AHL)

Dyson Stevenson, Forward – Portland (AHL)

Ryan MacInnis, Forward – Kitchener (OHL)

Christian Dvorak, Forward – London (OHL)

Edgars Kulda, Forward – Edmonton (WHL)

Laurent Dauphin, Forward – Chicoutimi (QMJHL)

Pavel LaPlante, Forward – Victoriaville (QMJHL)

Colin Suellentrop, Defense – Released

On top of the training camp roster cut, first round draft pick Brendan Perlini is suffering from a hand injury. Perlini, 18, has an apparent broken bone in his hand that was possibly sustained during prospect camp. He will be staying around for a couple more days so that they can determine the severity of the injury. No further reports have been released.


Sports and fashion are Allison's true passions. She grew up in the household of a professional athlete, and a family blessed with true athletic talent. She, on the other hand, must have been absent on the day that sport skills were passed out! Although, she does possess a zeal that most girls do not have for sports of all kinds, hockey has consumed her life in the most unexplainable way. Sports are such an integral part of who she is, and she is on journey of becoming a part of a professional sports organization. Growing up minutes from the Las Vegas Strip didn't leave Allison with many options for being a sports fan.Spending the majority of her summers on the East Coast, Allison became a fan of all things Boston, and her heart will always have a special place for the city (especially the Bruins). Allison currently is an employee of the Arizona Coyotes and falls more in love with the game each and every day.
