Coyotes strike again, nab Nokelainen
The Phoenix Coyotes acquired fifth-year center Petteri Nokelainen from the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2010 Entry Draft. Nokelainen, 24, was the New York Islanders' first-round pick, 16th overall, in the 2004 Draft. He played only 15 games for the Islanders before a knee injury sidelined him for most of the 2005-06 season.

The Islanders traded him to Boston in 2007 and he played 90 games over parts of two seasons before he was traded to Anaheim for Steve Montador on March 4, 2009. Nokelainen had four goals and 11 points with 21 penalty minutes and was minus-7 in 50 games this season. He has 16 goals and 32 points with 60 penalty minutes and is minus-6 in 172 NHL games.
Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
