The Coyotes summoned Hayton (shoulder) from AHL Tucson on Thursday.

Hayton hasn't seen the ice in NHL action since late November, but that extended absence could come to an end very soon. According to a report from Craig Morgan of The Athletic earlier this week, Hayton isn't expected to be an option for game action until Saturday's game against the Capitals, which would make sense since the team is already in Ottawa for Thursday's contest. Aaron Ness was sent back to Tucson in a corresponding move.
