The Phoenix Coyotes announced that the team will play the Toronto Maple Leafs at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Wednesday, September 19 at 5:30 p.m. in a preseason game.
The game will mark the Coyotes’ second visit to Winnipeg since moving to Phoenix in 1996. The Coyotes played the Edmonton Oilers in a preseason game at the MTS Centre last year in the team’s first return to Winnipeg.
Coyotes’ captain Shane Doan
played the 1995-96 season in a Winnipeg Jets’ uniform after being selected by the organization in the first round (7th overall) in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. Coyotes’ Head Equipment Manager Stan Wilson and Massage Therapist Jukka Nieminen have also been members of the organization since the team played in Winnipeg.
The Coyotes’ complete 2007-08 preseason schedule will be released at a later date.
