Clayton Keller probably saw it coming, but he wasn't left much of a choice.

The much-heralded Arizona Coyotes rookie made his debut in his hometown of St. Louis. And you know what that means.

Just like the Canucks did to Chad Boeser in Minnesota recently and theIslanders did to Anthony Beauvillier in Montreal earlier this season, Keller was taking the ice alone.

While the rest of the team eventually joined him on the ice, the Coyotes are certainly hoping the prospect will become a standout star.
