Latendresse to attend Coyotes training camp
Free-agent forward Guillaume Latendresse, who spent last season with the Senators, has been invited to Coyotes' training camp.

Free-agent forward Guillaume Latendresse, who spent last season with the Ottawa Senators, has been invited to Phoenix Coyotes training camp, according to assistant general manager Brad Treliving.

Latendresse, 26, had six goals and 10 points in 27 games with the Senators in 2012-13. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound forward scored 73 goals in his first 287 NHL games, including 25 in 55 games for the Minnesota Wild in 2009-10. But his career was derailed by hip, hernia and concussion issues from 2010-12; he played 27 of a possible 164 games in those two seasons.

He was the Montreal Canadiens' second-round pick (No. 45) in the 2005 NHL Draft and made the team as a 19-year-old in 2006-07. He was traded to Minnesota on Nov. 23, 2009.

Gilbert Brule, the sixth player chosen in the 2005 draft, also will get a tryout with the Coyotes.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
