Unfortunately today we do not have any Phoenix Coyotes news, although as we all know no news is good news. Still no news on the lockout coming to an end but we hope it happens sooner rather then later. Until then we have some stories that will hopefully quench your hockey appetite including some news from our AHL and ECHL hockey affiliates. And if you get really bored later this week ASU will be playing the U of A team which should be fun. Until then enjoy today's links.
