ABOUT THE COYOTES Newly rebranded as the Arizona, not Phoenix, Coyotes, another season in the desert starts coming off two years of missing the playoffs. Last season's shortcoming was just two points, largely a product of late-season struggles that saw the team win just three of the last 10. Arizona starts off its season with the first four at home, L.A., Edmonton and St. Louis are the teams following the Jets here. The Coyotes went 4-2-2 in the pre-season and were led in points by 26-year-old "rookie" Justin Hodgman, who was 4-1-5 in five games. Hodgman has been in Europe for the past three seasons. All three games between the teams last season went to the Jets, two by shootouts. WINNIPEG JETS
