Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan practiced with his teammates for a full hour Monday at Jobing.com Arena.

Doan last played Dec. 4 and has been out of the lineup with an illness that was diagnosed as Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

There is currently no timetable for his return to the lineup.

When the diagnosis was first announced earlier this month, Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said Doan was taking medication and considered week-to-week.

Doan, in his 18th NHL season, has 12 goals and 23 points in 27 games.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
