Earlier this morning the Coyotes announced that they sent back center Laurent Dauphin and right-handed defenseman Anthony DeAngelo to the Tucson Roadrunners.

Who Went Down

Dauphin, this season has played 18 games with the Coyotes, only tallying one goal and one assist, playing mostly fourth line minutes. The 21-year-old center will see the ice time that he needs in the AHL with the Roadrunners with center Tyler Gaudet being called up before the game against Columbus on Saturday.

Anthony DeAngelo was called up when Michael Stone was injured against Philadelphia at the end of the first road trip of the year. He has played 11 games with the Coyotes with a total of two goals and five assists for seven points. He was playing mostly second pair minutes with Alex Goligoski and point on the power play with Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

Both players were sent down to work on skills that they are lacking to be full-time NHL players.

Who Came Up?

Brendan Perlini, a left wing, is finally going to see some time with the big club. He has been incredible in the AHL this season. He was Rookie of the Month for November and a player of the week after Thanksgiving. In 16 games he played with the Tucson Roadrunners he had 11 goals and 5 assists for 16 points.

Perlini is the Coyotes 2014 first round pick who was selected twelfth overall. Hopefully, we will see Perlini in the lineup against Columbus on Monday night.
