Coyotes send Yip to AHL
The Phoenix Coyotes on Monday assigned forward Brandon Yip to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Portland Pirates. The Arizona Republic reports the move creates room on the active roster for veteran center Jeff Halpern, who agreed to a one-year, two-way contract Saturday.

The Phoenix Coyotes on Monday assigned forward Brandon Yip to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Portland Pirates. The Arizona Republic reports the move creates room on the active roster for veteran center Jeff Halpern, who agreed to a one-year, two-way contract Saturday.

Yip had been called up Friday, but was a healthy scratch Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers and Sunday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The 28-year-old forward signed with the Coyotes as a free agent, but has yet to get into a game with them. He also has yet to play in the AHL this season.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
