While Saturday's victory over the Anaheim Ducks marked the end of the road for the Coyotes' play this season, fans will get the opportunity to see a few select Yotes play this off-season.


As was announced on Saturday, Hockey Canada named Dave Tippett assistant coach for Team Canada at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation's World Championships. Tippett, who is no stranger to international play, will again join Predators' Barry Trotz and Team Canada's head coach Lindy Ruff behind the bench. Paired together in 2009, the threesome took home silver at the world championship. This year though will see the addition of Mike Smith to the Canada's roster.

Additional Coyotes who will be playing in the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation's World Championship tournament are:

Zbynek Michalek - Czech Republic
Martin Hanzal - Czech Republic
Radim Vrbata - Czech Republic
Mikkel Boedker - Denmark
Lauri Korpikoski - Finland
David Moss - United States

The 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation's World Championships tournament is set to start May 3 and run until May 19. NBC Sports Network will be televising all of Team USA's games in the preliminary round, as well as all of the quarterfinal contests. Their broadcast plan for the medal round has not been announced yet. More info on the 2013 IIHF World Championship can be found here.
