There are several kids left in Tucson who are performing well. Are there any you’d like to see or expect to see called up before season’s end?

Jason HarrisonChristian Fischer. Kyle Wood.

They’ve dominated in Tucson. Time to see if they can make some noise in Glendale.

There’s no real reason not to give them at least a few games to earn some extra money and get a taste of NHL life. If they can hang, they stay, and if they can’t, Chayka and Tipp can run it back in training camp next season.

In the meantime, both players will know a little more about what to expect and prepare for.

Alex Temes — I would love to see both Kyle Wood and Christian Fischer get a shot at playing in the big leagues.

Wood has been Tucson’s best defenseman so far this season with 30 points so far just 32 games. Fischer has also been an impact player, earning AHL Player of the Week honors recently as well as posting a hat trick.

Both have been a driving force in Tucson’s success this season.

Drew Walters — My first instinct would be to say Henrik Samuelsson. Part of me still really wants to believe that he can pan out and become a solid third line option in the NHL.

That being said, we have seen him with the Coyotes a couple times now, so I would love to see Kyle Wood. Acquired as part of the Mikkel Boedker trade with Colorado last season, his 30 points (8G, 22A) in 33 games is impressive.

Can he translate that to the NHL? Only one way to find out.
