The next round of Coyotes training camp cuts have been made, and this time, some of the names on the list came as a shock. Two of the men have been some of the biggest talk around training camp, so the motives behind the decision to move them down to the AHL are a mystery to many. Those two men are Henrik Samuelsson and Tyler Gaudet, some of the most talked about Coyotes’ hopefuls at training camp. Samuelsson was especially an asset in camp, having a phenomenal pre-season game Monday night against the L.A. Kings, where he was put on a line that produced 3 goals, with Max Domi and veteran Martin Hanzel. Coach Tippett has been outspoken about young players developing more before coming up to the big league, so the fact that some young guys were moved down isn’t a surprise, just who was moved was the bombshell. Only time will tell, but below is a list of the rest of the Coyotes’ cuts. 32 players remain in camp, still.

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.
