Suspension Served, Rinaldo Eligible to Play vs. Stars

Forward Zac Rinaldo likely will make his debut with the Coyotes on Tuesday at Dallas

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

DALLAS - Zac Rinaldo's five-game NHL suspension is over and he likely will make his Coyotes debut on Tuesday when Arizona skates vs. the Stars at American Airlines Center.

"We've worked him in practice and he looks good in practice," Head Coach Rick Tocchet said Monday. "He's an energy guy. He's the type of guy that can get some life on the bench and he doesn't hurt you on the ice. He's got an underrated shot."

The League suspended Rinaldo for five games after he delivered an illegal check to the head of Tampa Bay's Cedric Paquette in a game played Feb. 28, 2016. Rinaldo has not played in the NHL since that hit. He signed with the Coyotes last summer.

Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson will reach milestone in Dallas on Tuesday

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

DALLAS - Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson will skate in his 500th NHL game on Tuesday when the Coyotes battle the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.

"It feels like I've been in the league for a long time, but time flies," Ekman-Larsson said after Monday's practice. "Not everybody gets to play 500 games in this league and that means a lot to me. I want to stay in this league for another 500 games if I can."

Ekman-Larsson, whom Arizona drafted sixth overall in 2009, will become the sixth defenseman in franchise history to skate in 500 games. He broke into the NHL with the Coyotes in 2010-11. He says he could speak for an hour about memorable NHL games in which he's played, but, like many players, his first stands out the most.
