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.

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."

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.
