Coyotes captain Shane Doan feeling better, but still not sure what made him sick

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan still doesn't know what made him so sick for the past 10 days, but he's responding to medicine and starting to feel better.

Doan missed his fourth straight game Saturday night against Carolina, but joined the team in meetings and was in the arena for the game.

He started feeling sick after the Coyotes played Edmonton on Dec. 3 and went to see a doctor in Vancouver three days later when his symptoms wouldn't subside.

Doan said he had a fever and headaches while he was sick, but has returned to normal activities away from the ice and rode a bike for 10 minutes on Saturday without any trouble.

Doctors have yet to determine what caused his illness.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
