Arizona Coyotes
Players in S.W.A.T. Classroom
The phrase “boom; there goes the dynamite” never held truer than on Tuesday as seven Phoenix Coyotes players traded in their hockey pads for bulletproof vests, spending the day with members of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department S.W.A.T.

Keith Ballard, Fredrik Sjostrom, Mikael Tellqvist, Mathias Tjarnqvist, Craig Weller Daniel Winnik and Keith Yandle each went through “a day in the life” of a S.W.A.T. officer, including live ammunition training, an explosives demonstration and a mock hostage rescue.

As part of Coyotes Causes “Honoring our Heroes” presented by The CORE Institute – a month-long salute to the men and women of local military, fire and police – the joint venture allowed the Coyotes to give back to some of our community’s true heroes while gaining a greater appreciation for those sworn to protect and serve.
