The Phoenix Coyotes recalled defenseman Brandon Gormley from the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League on Thursday and assigned forward Tim Kennedy to Portland.

The Coyotes selected Gormley with the 13th pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Kennedy, 27, had three assists in six games with Phoenix and has 13 goals, 34 points and 56 penalty minutes in 131 career NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers, San Jose Sharks and the Coyotes. He was originally drafted by the Washington Capitals in the sixth round (No. 181) of the 2005 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
