Coyotes' Morris to return Friday

NHL.com @NHL
OTTAWA - Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris practiced with the team on Thursday, and Head Coach Wayne Gretzky said Morris would play Friday vs. the Senators despite a cut on his hand suffered early in Wednesday's game at Chicago.

"The ref stepped on my finger by accident and cut it pretty good," said Morris, who suffered the slice while wrestling with Chicago's Adam Burish on the ice after they'd swapped a few punches.

Morris has not missed a game because of injury since the 2005-06 season.
