The Coyotes are still searching for a left winger to play with Martin Hanzal and Radim Vrbata, but coach Dave Tippett was impressed with how Rob Klinkhammer did in that role during Thursday's game.
"I thought Klink was really good, really solid, big heavy guy on the forecheck," Tippett said. "He came to play hard (Thursday), and that’s what our group has to do — feed off each line. They go out there and make sure we compete our hardest, make sure they’re on the right side of the puck, little things right and we’ll find a way to get points." The Coyotes lost the Thursday game in a shootout to the Colorado Avalanche. On the season, Klinkhammer has nine goals and nine assists in 56 games. Mar 1 - 11:00 AM

Rob Klinkhammer has only two goals and three points in the Coyotes last 27 games.

That includes being a healthy scratch for four games but he got off to a great start with seven goals and 14 points in his first 31 contests so he does have some scoring ability at the NHL level. "I think I really needed it just to get away and reflect," Klinkhammer said. "I thought a lot a about my game and what I need to change and stuff. I think it was a good break for me, and I think I'll turn things around in the second half here."

Rob Klinkhammer will get married during the Olympic break.

His best man will be Blackhawks forward Kris Versteeg. "You don't get a couple weeks off in the middle of the season often, so we (he and fiancée Jessica) just thought it'd be a good idea," Klinkhammer said. "We love it down here. It's kind of like home now. Just thought it'd be a cool wedding to have in the desert." Congratulations to both on the upcoming nuptials. Klinkhammer has nine goals and 17 points with a plus-seven rating this season.

Rob Klinkhammer scored twice to lead the Phoenix Coyotes to a 5-3 win over Carolina Sunday.

Klinkhammer now has three goals in his last two games. He is a bottom-six forward so it's a nice streak for the 27-year-old who now has four points this season. He had 11 points in 22 games for the Coyotes in 2013 and finally signed a one-way contract in the off-season. He has little fantasy value but games like Sunday give his possible fantasy owners some food for thought.

Rob Klinkhammer signed a two-year, $1.25 million contract with the Coyotes.

Rob Klinkhammer returned to action Friday night for the Coyotes' 5-4 loss to the Avalanche.

He scored a goal and took for shots on Colorado's goalies in 14:52 of playing time. Klinkhammer has obviously recovered from his concussion. He should be fine for Saturday's season finale against the Ducks.

Rob Klinkhammer registered an assist in Phoenix's 3-1 win Wednesday.

Klinkhammer has four goals and nine points in 15 games this season. The 26-year-old might prove to be a diamond in the rough and is worth keeping an eye on in the early portion of the 2013-14 campaign.

Rob Klinkhammer scored a goal and an assist in the Phoenix Coyotes' 4-3 OT loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Klinkhammer has a two-game goal streak (plus an assist) going now. He's done so in just 19 minutes of ice time over the last two games, so it might be a little flukey. Great last name, though.

Rob Klinkhammer scored his first career goal in his first game with the Coyotes Saturday, a 2-1 win over Dallas.

Klinkhammer drew into the lineup when Matthew Lombardi was unable to go and the entire day was an adventure for him. "It was just a whirlwind," Klinkhammer said. "I’m loving every minute of it, though. I couldn’t ask for it to happen any better." Coach Dave Tippett praised Klinkhammer's effort, saying "He’s a solid player, strong on the wall. He gives you a good forecheck down there." Despite leading the Portland Pirates in scoring at the time of his call-up, don't expect him to provide enough offense to be fantasy-relevant this season.
