Coyotes Tracks - July 13, 2011 - Anderson Hired, Edwards Staying

The Phoenix Coyotes officially hired John Anderson as an assistant coach on Tuesday.  No, not the guy who ran for President.  They hired the John Anderson who played for the Leafs and Whalers among other teams before moving on to be a minor league and NHL coach.  Also, late Tuesday night the Maine Hockey Jornal reported Portland Pirates head coach Ray Edwards is staying put.  Edwards interviewed with the Winnipeg jets for an assistant coaching vacany they have.

A reminder that Coyotes prospect and Hobey Baker Award winner Andy Miele is up for an ESPY award this evening.
