COYOTES PLACE ADAMS & SCATCHARD
ON INJURED RESERVE LIST
Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Michael Barnett announced that the Coyotes have placed centers Kevyn Adams and Dave Scatchard on the club's injured reserve list. Adams had wrist surgery last week and will be out of the lineup indefinitely. Scatchard suffered a concussion in the third period of last Saturday's game versus the Pittsburgh Penguins and will also be out of the lineup indefinitely.

The 6-foot-2, 224-pound Scatchard has played 42 games with the Coyotes this season, collecting 3-5-8 and 66 PIM.
