Doan leaves scrimmage early

Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan left Wednesday's intrasquad scrimmage, but coach Dave Tippett reportedly isn't too worried

"He just had a muscle pull or something," Tippett said, according to azcentral.com's Sarah McLellan. "I don't think it's too serious."

Doan, 36, left halfway through the scrimmage and might not participate in Thursday's practice. He had offseason surgery to repair sports hernias on each side of his abdomen, which limited his mobility last season.

The scrimmage at Jobing.com Arena was held to benefit the 19 firefighters who lost their lives fighting a forest fire while trying to save the town of Yarnell, Ariz.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
