-- Phoenix Coyotes Captain Shane Doan
won the NHL Elimination Shoot Out at the 2009 Honda NHL SuperSkills Competition in Montreal on Saturday.
The competition was the final event of the SuperSkills Competition and began with 36 shooters and four goalies. Shooters who scored remained in the competition and moved into the next round while those who did not were eliminated. Rounds continued until only one player scored and the others did not. Doan advanced through each round and was the last player to score, winning the competition.
Coyotes rookie Mikkel Boedker
played in the YoungStars Game on Saturday and helped lead the Rookie Team to a win over the Sophomore Team.
Doan, who leads the Coyotes in scoring this season with 18-28-46 in 48 games, will appear in his second career All-Star Game tomorrow when he plays for the Western Conference. The Game begins at 4 p.m. and will be televised on VERSUS Network. In addition, Coyotes television broadcaster Dave Strader will call the game for NHL International.
