PHOENIX -- The Coyotes, working in conjunction with KaBOOM!, helped to construct a playground at Larry C. Kennedy School in Phoenix on Tuesday.
Volunteers began work on the project just after dawn and completed it approximately six hours later. The new playground, which was designed based on drawings by children submitted back in October, will provide a place to recreate for more than 900 kids.
All of the Coyotes coaches and players raced to the playground construction after practice on Tuesday morning and helped with the build. Other volunteers from the team included team President and CEO Steve Patterson, TV and radio broadcasters, office staffers, the Paw Patrol and team mascot Howler.
