Coyotes Tracks - January 15, 2012 - A Somewhat Slow News Day

Yesterday was kind of a slow news day in the hockey world with most people seeming to enjoy the holiday weekend off. Hopefully the Phoenix Coyotes are rested up, they will be playing the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow in an afternoon game at Arena at 2:00 pm, but more on that tomorrow.

Anyways we have a little bit of news about Chris Summers being called up again, and some news from the hockey world including quite a few injuries.
