Coyotes claim Josh Jooris off waivers from Rangers


The Arizona Coyotes have had some issues down the middle of their lineup this season and have attempted to address them anyway they can over the past couple of days.

After adding Peter Holland in a trade from the Toronto Maple Leafs late in the week, the team made another roster move on Sunday by claiming center Josh Jooris off waivers from the New York Rangers.

Jooris, 26, has appeared in 12 games this season for the Rangers scoring one goal and one assist.

In parts of three seasons in the NHL with the Calgary Flames and Rangers he has 39 points (17 goals, 12 assists).

Following the addition of Jooris, the Coyotes assigned Tyler Gaudet to Tuscon of the AHL. Gaudet had played in four games for the Coyotes and recorded one assist.
