Phoenix, AZ — Shane Doan has been cleared by team doctors to make his return to the Phoenix Coyotes lineup on Saturday. Doan has been out since December 4th due to a very rare illness called the Rocky-Mountain fever. His Coyotes are set to take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night. Doan was asked about his condition and how he felt now versus before, and here’s what he had to say: “I think I’ve got enough [energy] and feel good enough that I can go,” Doan told the team’s website after the Coyotes’ practice Friday. “I want to play. … I want to be able to help out. Guys are battling hard and doing everything they can to find ways to win. You want to help. That’s what we’re supposed to do and that’s what I’m paid to do. I want to get out there and try to do it.” The Coyotes captain still remains the team’s leading goal-scorer, and has 23 points in 27 games. The Coyotes were 4-3-5 without Shane Doan.
