GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Justin Hodgman figures he was in Belarus this time last year, or maybe it was Russia. Perhaps it was someplace else, he's not sure.
When you've had a dot-the-globe career like his, sometimes the when and where get a little fuzzy.
Besides, pinpointing the details of the journey aren't important now that Hodgman has reached the destination.

David Moss was eager to escape from the penalty box. Perhaps a bit too eager as he somehow managed to get his glove caught in the door as he was leaving. While that moment alone is GIF-worthy, the look on his face as he debates trying to retrieve it is incredible.
(H/T Reddit Hockey)
Mikkel Boedker scored on a power play, a soft backhander that trickled in and into an empty net.
An interesting collection of goals for his first career hat trick -- and his team needed nearly all of them.
Boedker scored two of his three goals in the third period and added an assist, helping the Arizona Coyotes outlast the winless Edmonton Oilers 7-4 on Wednesday night.

Just when it seemed like the Arizona Coyotes were out of the woods when it came to their ownership situation, they find themselves right back in the thick of it. The nightmare was apparently over last August, when the NHL approved the sale of the franchise to Ice Arizona. There’d be no more court cases, a stable ownership situation and a new age in Arizona hockey. Or so we thought...
