GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Michael Barnett announced today that the Coyotes have reassigned right wing Tim Jackman to the San Antonio Rampage, the Coyotes' top minor league affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Jackman, 24, has played eight games with the Coyotes this season.

The Coyotes acquired the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Jackman along with Geoff Sanderson from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jason Chimera, Cale Hulse, and Mike Rupp on Oct. 8, 2005.
Nash Activated from I.R.: Barnett also announced that left wing Tyson Nash has been activated from Injured Reserve by the Coyotes and will be available to play in tonight's game at Buffalo.

The Coyotes and Sabres will face off tonight at 5:00 p.m. Arizona time. The game will be broadcast on KDUS (1060 AM).
