From Arizona Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney on re-assigning Samuelsson and Guadet – 

“I thought both of them had excellent training camps.  It was a somewhat difficult decision to send them out to Portland (AHL), but we looked at the calendar and realized we start our season in less than two weeks and we have a lot of players to sort out here.  Both first-year pros simply need experience playing with and against men.” 

From Arizona Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett –

“They’re going to be good NHL players.  We have to make sure they get all the steps in place … They shouldn’t be discouraged about going down and getting started there.”

The Arizona Coyotes have three preseason games left before their season opener vs Winnipeg on October, 9 and Head Coach Dave Tippett would like to get his forward lines and defence pairings settled.

“We’ve given the younger players a great deal of opportunity the last week with so many games and played a lot of players in a lot of different situations.  But now this trip turns to start getting our team in order.”
