On Monday, the Coyotes training camp resumed with Team A posting a 3-0 win over Team C in the morning scrimmage.

Phoenix forward Josh Gratton put Team A on the scoreboard in the first half when he took a pass from rookie Kyle Wilson, spun around and released a shot that wobbled over the glove hand of Curtis Joseph for the 1-0 lead.

Team C would try to even the score in the first half, but were unable to get the puck past Mike Morrison, who left the game after 20-minutes of play with the shutout intact.

In the second half, Team A would increase their lead to 3-0 after Yanick Lehoux scored two goals on the same shift, less than a minute apart.

Lehoux's first goal came from the top of the crease as he flipped the puck over the arm of Pier-Olivier Pelltier to make it 2-0.

Just seconds later, Lehoux struck again when he crashed the net and tapped in a loose puck at the right side of the net, putting Team A up by three-goals.

Despite their efforts, Team C was still unable to find the back of the net in the second half as rookie Josh Tordjman preserved Morrison's first half shutout for a 3-0 win.

SJOSTROM OUT 3-4 WEEKS
During Sunday's pre-season opener, Coyotes left wing Fredrik Sjostrom suffered a bruised shoulder.

The injury is likely to keep Sjostrom out of the line-up 3-4 weeks.

"It's a little bit of a blow, because we had "Freddy" penciled in to play on a line with (Dave) Scatchard and give us a line that can fly around," said Head Coach Wayne Gretzky. "Now with Freddy down for possibly up to five or six (regular season) games, it open up a sport for someone else."
