Phoenix Coyotes recall forwards Chris Brown, Rob Klinkhammer from AHL affiliate in Portland

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes on Friday recalled forwards Chris Brown and Rob Klinkhammer from their AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine.

The 22-year-old Brown has 18 goals and 11 assists in 51 games for Portland this season.

Brown was a second-round draft pick of the Coyotes in 2009. He didn't sign with Phoenix until last year after he finished his college career at Michigan, where he had 34 goals and 46 assists in 125 games.

Klinkhammer leads the Pirates this season with 44 points in 52 games. He's tied for eighth in the AHL in points and leads Portland with 30 assists while ranking third on the team with 14 goals.

The 26-year-old Klinkhammer was signed by the Coyotes as a free agent last July after NHL stops in Chicago and Ottawa.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
