GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes have acquired left wing Wojtek Wolski (VOY-teck VOHL-skee) from the Colorado Avalanche for forwards Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter.

The 24-year-old Wolski has 17 goals and 30 assists this season in 62 games. The 21-year-old Mueller has had a disappointing follow-up to his outstanding rookie season. He has four goals and 13 assists in 54 games. A year ago he had 22 goals and 32 assists for Phoenix in 82 games. Porter has spent most of the season with the Coyotes' minor league affiliate in San Antonio.

Both Wolski and Mueller were first-round draft picks.

Earlier Wednesday, Phoenix acquired defenseman Derek Morris from Boston for a conditional 2011 draft pick.
