Domingue is ‘fine’
Louis Domingue appeared a bit dazed after being hit in the head by a shot during the final minutes of the second period in last night’s preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks. As a precautionary measure he was removed from the rest of the game held at the Tucson Arena. During his postgame interview Head Coach Rick Tocchet said that Louis was fine and had wanted to get back in the game.
Dylan Strome was one of the forwards that Coyotes fans have been waiting to see more from and during last night’s game he delivered. His line with Mario Kempe and Anthony Duclair totaled to four points on the night where the final score was 6-4 for Anaheim. “If he can work on a couple of things defensively, be a little more assertive, you know, he could be a guy that can stay here,” Tocchet said about Strome during is postgame interview.
Dylan Strome needed a big game tonight. And he's having it. #Coyotes— Luke Lapinski (@LukeLapinski) September 26, 2017
The team started off very strong in the first period with goals from Brendan Perlini and Kyle Wood but the Ducks answered back in the second. Strome opened the scoring in the second for the Coyotes with an unassisted goal and his linemates followed with a goal by Kempe that was assisted by Duclair. Unfortunately after that the Ducks had four unanswered goals.
Coyotes Cut Roster by 5:
The team announced today that five additional players have been cut from the NHL roster. Ryan MacInnis and Kyle Wood will be returning to Tucson. They will be joined by the newest Roadrunners Nick Merkley, Andrew Campbell and Kevin Ekman-Larsson.
There are now 29 players on the training camp roster so more cuts will be coming in the future.
