TUCSON -- The Coyotes will play their fourth preseason game on Monday night vs. the Anaheim Ducks at the Tucson Arena, home of the Tucson Roadrunners, Arizona's American Hockey League affiliate. The puck drops at 7 p.m. Arizona time.

Fans can listen to the Coyotes Radio broadcast of the game on KTAR News 92.3 FM.  

Arizona has posted a 1-1-1 record thus far in the preseason.

Defenseman Kyle Wood played 68 games for Tucson last season, his first as a pro.

"It's definitely huge," Wood said of Monday's game coming to Tucson. "It's going to be awesome for the fans there. They were great for us last year, they battled through some rough patches at the end of the year, but they kept showing up."

He added: "I'm obviously used to the building, I played there last year, so it's going to be cool to go back there. It's going to be interesting to be wearing a different jersey and see the different kinds of fans that show up. It's going to be cool to wear that Coyotes jersey and play in Tucson where I did last year."

Here's Arizona's roster for Monday's game (subject to change):

FORWARDS: Nick Cousins, Lawson Crouse, Anthony Duclair, Emerson Etem, Mario Kempe, Ryan MacInnis, Nick Merkley, Brendan Perlini, Brad Richardson, Tobias Rieder, Zac Rinaldo, Dylan Strome. 

DEFENSEMEN: Andrew Campbell, Adam Clendening, Kevin Connauton, Kevin Ekman-Larsson, Dakota Mermis, Kyle Wood.

GOALIES: Louis Domingue, Marek Langhamer 

Head Coach Rick Tocchet said Louis Domingue, who has stopped 36 of 40 shots this preseason, will start in goal and likely play the entire game.

The Coyotes trimmed their roster to 34 before tonight's game. That means 11 more must be cut by Oct. 3.

Tonight's game will be a key audition for many players in Arizona's lineup.

"There might be a guy ahead of certain people right now, but there's still three exhibition games left," Tocchet said. "There's a couple guys I haven't seen separate themselves from anybody, but I saw some guys really playing well. We've got to try to figure out quickly who wants to be on this team. For sure, there's no guarantees on this team."
