Prospect Faceoff: Notable Coyotes prospects compete this weekend, clash of styles in Quebec Four Arizona Coyotes prospects are in competition this weekend, starting with Ryan MacInnis and Kyle Capobianco, who lock up against each other in Northern Ontario. Dysin Mayo takes on a potential rival, and Jens Looke rounds out the Coyotes entrants in this week’s Prospect Faceoff. In the QMJHL, two players with decidedly different approaches to the game will go one-on-one, so too will a pair of young American prospects competing in the USHL before heading off to college hockey.

Luke Philp (Kootenay) vs. Travis Sanheim (Calgary) – WHL The Kootenay Ice and Calgary Hitmen combined for 59 shots, and only one of them went in. The goal belonged to Loch Morrisson, an even strength goal halfway through the second period. From there, Calgary’s defense stood firm, led by Sanheim, who finished with an even rating, and goaltender Brendan Burke, who stopped all 21 shots against to earn the shutout. Luke Philp was on the ice for the only goal against, finishing without a point and a -1 rating. Nicolas Meloche (Baie-Comeau) vs. Dmytro Timashov (Quebec) – QMJHL The Quebec Remparts rushed out to a 2-0 lead, only to squander it in the third period as Baie-Comeau registered three third period goals to finish off a 3-2 comeback victory. Nicolas Meloche found the scoresheet with one goal, finishing with a +1 rating. Dmytro Timashov created a few chances during the game, but was otherwise quiet, finishing without a point and a +1 rating of his
