Thursday's Coyotes Tracks - Lombardi Returns

Christian Petersen

Last night, Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney pulled off another one of his low risk, possible high reward trades. He re-acquired center Matthew Lombardi for a conditional draft pick. The news came down while the team was conducting their annual Red & White scrimmage. Besides links on the trade we have other Desert Dog related links for you including Pacific Division previews and the usual smattering of general hockey links. In addition, we've got a double dose in today's Final Howl.
