GLENDALE, Ariz.(AP) — The Phoenix Coyotes have acquired left wing
Wojtec Wolski (VOY-teck VOHL-skee) from the Colorado Avalanche
for forwards Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter.
The 24-year-old Wolski has 17 goals and 30 assists this season
in 62 games. The 21-year-old Mueller has had a disappointing
follow-up to his outstanding rookie season. He has four goals
and 13 assists in 54 games. A year ago he had 22 goals and 32
assists for Phoenix in 82 games. Porter has spent most of the
season with the Coyotes’ minor league affiliate in San Antonio.
Both Wolski and Mueller were first-round draft picks.
Earlier Wednesday, Phoenix acquired defenseman Derek Morris from
Boston for a conditional 2011 draft pick.
