COYOTES CLAIM KOLANOS OFF WAIVERS FROM EDMONTON,
KOLANOS REASSIGNED TO SAN ANTONIO

GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Michael Barnett announced today that center Krystofer Kolanos was claimed off waivers from the Edmonton Oilers.  The Coyotes then reassigned Kolanos to the San Antonio Rampage, the Coyotes' top minor league affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Kolanos rejoins the Coyotes organization after leaving on Nov. 11 when he was claimed off waivers by Edmonton.  In 6 games with the Oilers this season, he collected no points and two penalty minutes (PIM).  He had previously played in 9 games with the Coyotes this season, registering 2-1-3 and 2 PIM.

The 24-year-old forward has played in 115 games throughout his 4-year NHL career with Phoenix and Edmonton, totaling 17-18-35 and 76 PIM.  Of his 115 NHL games, 109 of them have been played as a Coyote. 

In 2003-04, the 6-foot-3, 206-pound Kolanos played in 41 games with the Coyotes (4-6-10 and 24 PIM) and 32 games for the AHL's Springfield Falcons (10-11-21 and 38 PIM).

The Calgary, Alberta native was originally drafted by the Coyotes in the first round (19th overall) of the 2000 Entry Draft.
