Tuesday's Coyotes Tracks - Lee Gets Promoted

Justin K. Aller

The big hockey news today is that a lower body injury to Chad Johnson has led to the Portland Pirates calling up Mike Lee of the Gwinnett Gladiators. Lee is having a terrific season in the ECHL, so the call-up, while temporary, is well deserved. Other links include a look at the Coyotes' Canadian Hockey League prospects, a suspension for the Sundogs, and a satirical take on the upcoming players-owners meeting.
