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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
