Keller Eager to Play vs. Kane for First Time

Coyotes rookie Clayton Keller says Chicago's Patrick Kane is a role model

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

GLENDALE -- Coyotes rookie Clayton Keller lists Chicago's Patrick Kane as the NHL player he most admired growing up. In fact, Keller, who like Kane stands 5-foot-10, has tried to model his game after Kane's.

The two will skate together on NHL ice for the first time on Saturday night when Arizona hosts Chicago at Gila River Arena. 

"It's cool," Keller said. "He was probably my favorite player growing up. (He's) a small guy, a lot of skill, hockey IQ. So it'll be cool to play against him. At the same time, we've got to focus on our goal and just playing the right way."

Ekman-Larsson Approaches 500th NHL Game

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.
