SCOTTSDALE -- It has been two decades since a dozen members of the original Phoenix Coyotes had all been together, but it took only a few minutes for the one-liners and locker room nicknames to start flying like slap shots on Friday night.
"Yeah, Keith Tkachuk started in on everyone right away," center Cliff Ronning said, loud enough for his former captain to hear. "I knew it was going to be like this. We had a good team back then, but we had great guys. That's why getting this team together was such a great idea."
