GLENDALE -- Coyotes rookie Clayton Keller lists Chicago's Patrick Kane as the NHL player he most admired growing up. In fact, Keller, who like Kane stands 5-foot-10, has tried to model his game after Kane's.
The two will skate together on NHL ice for the first time on Saturday night when Arizona hosts Chicago at Gila River Arena.
"It's cool," Keller said. "He was probably my favorite player growing up. (He's) a small guy, a lot of skill, hockey IQ. So it'll be cool to play against him. At the same time, we've got to focus on our goal and just playing the right way."
