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.

'Yotes Notes: Capobianco Makes NHL Debut in Boston

Defenseman Kyle Capobianco played his first game for the Coyotes on Thursday vs. Bruins

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

BOSTON - Rookie defenseman Kyle Capobianco made his NHL debut on Thursday night at TD Garden. He skated 13:33, delivered three hits and blocked one shot in his first League game, which Arizona lost, 6-1.

"It was a great experience and I think the guys were really helpful with me," Capobianco said. "They were really friendly throughout the day and showed me the ropes."

The Coyotes recalled Capobianco from the American Hockey League on Monday and he practiced with the team on Tuesday and Wednesday. That helped him get acclimated to life in the NHL. Still, once the puck dropped, Capobianco quickly recognized the NHL is different than other league.
