Doan practices with Coyotes, no timetable on return
Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan practiced with his teammates for a full hour Monday at Jobing.com Arena.

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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
