GLENDALE – The Coyotes resume their preseason schedule tonight with a pair of split-squad games against the Los Angeles Kings. The games will be played simultaneously at Jobing.com Arena and the Staples Center beginning at 7 p.m.
Head Coach Dave Tippett and his staff will use the games to evaluate talent and to help shape the roster for the 2010-11 regular season, which begins Oct. 9 in Prague.
The competition for jobs is heating up. At center, for instance, Kyle Turris took a nice step toward securing the fourth slot on the depth chart in Tuesday’s preseason opener by notching a goal and an assist. Andrew Ebbett also scored a goal. And while he didn't score a goal, tryout Kyle Wellwood turned heads in that game with his playmaking skills.
