Chad Kolarik is having an excellent training camp and has given himself a chance for the final roster spot in Phoenix.

Koralik has already scored once in the pre-season, but is a gritty player. "I'm just an energy guy that can chip in here and there," Koralik said. "It's the only way I'm going to make this team. I know I'm not going to be a top six forward in the NHL, I know that. It's going to be an uphill battle." He has no fantasy value.
