The Phoenix Coyotes snapped their seven-game losing streak Thursday night in Nashville and in between stops on their three-game road trip, the team made a small move Friday afternoon according to Senior Director of Communications Rich Nairn.
#Coyotes have acquired forward Tobias Rieder from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for forward Kale Kessy.

Rieder, a fourth-round pick by the Oilers back in 2011, has quite a scoring pedigree despite being just 20 years of age. In 2011-12, Rieder played for the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League and scored 85 points (42 goals and 43 assists) in 60 games.
In 52 games this season, Rieder has 27 goals and 56 points for the Rangers.
Kessy has played 31 games this season for the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. He has 12 goals and 44 penalty minutes.
