GLENDALE -- The Portland Pirates, the Coyotes’ top affiliate in the American Hockey League, lost three of four games last week but still lead the Atlantic Division by six points.

Portland (24-15-1-1) will try to start a new winning streak this week with several key players – including Andy Miele, David Rundblad, Rob Klinkhammer - and newcomer Nick Johnson back from Coyotes training camp.

Team captain/leading scorer Alex Bolduc and defenseman Michael Stone remain with the Coyotes.
