New, comments

A review of which clubs around the world Coyotes players have signed with and how they are doing with their current squads.

Christian Petersen

Currently, due to the NHL Lockout, Phoenix Coyotes are scattered across the globe. While most of the players expected to be on the roster this season are keeping in shape with practices, and in Shane Doan's case adult men's leagues, a number of Desert Dogs are playing regular season games in leagues around the world. Two of them, David Schlemko and Kyle Chipchura, are playing right up the road in Prescott Valley, while Oliver Ekman-Larrsson is spending his days riding buses with the Coyotes AHL affiliate in Portland Maine. Across the pond, forwards Mikkel Boedker and Lauri Korpikoski are playing in the Finnish SM-Liiga, while Rusty Klesa is playing for a club in his native Czech Republic. According to the Arizona Republic's Sarah McClellan, Martin Hanzal may have already signed with HC Mountfield.

Below are the statistics through Tuesday's games for all six of the players.
