Gaudet was assigned to AHL Tucson on Sunday. With the Coyotes claiming Josh Jooris, room needed to be made and Gaudet was the unlucky man. He has only played four games while bouncing between the minors and NHL, but he did notch his first point in Saturday's game. He will likely be the first man up if the Coyotes' injury situation gets even worse.
Gaudet was called up from AHL Tuscon on Friday. The 'Yotes had an open roster spot with Brad Richardson (leg) on injured reserve. Gaudet's a decent low-end scoring pivot, having picked up two goals and five assists in 12 games with the Roadrunners this season, but he'll be off the map in fantasy until landing a more substantial role.
Gaudet was shipped back to AHL Tuscon on Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Gaudet was recalled as a contingency plan for Sunday's contest, but wasn't needed and the has been subsequently demoted back to the club's AHL affiliate. He's had a decent early-season run in the minors this season, notching seven points in 11 games, but it's unlikely he will make a major impact at the top level this season.
Gaudet was brought up to the parent club Saturday. Gaudet is needed with fellow forward Laurent Dauphin (undisclosed) ailing ahead of Sunday's road tilt with the Oilers. There's not much to look at here, as the young centerman has just 17 NHL games under his belt, plus he's yet to record a positive rating in two seasons and running between the 'Yotes and their top minor-league affiliate.
Gaudet was reassigned to the minors Wednesday. Gaudet logged 13:10 of ice time in his one-game stint in the majors and was a minus-1. The center will head back to Tucson where he has notched two goals and a trio of helpers through the first eight matchup of the year. Given their depth down the middle in Arizona, it seems like the 23-year-old will spend the majority of the 2016-17 campaign in the AHL further developing his game.
