The Arizona Coyotes on Thursday released the roster for their 2021 Rookie Faceoff Tournament.

It includes the No. 9 overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, forward Dylan Guenther.

Other Arizona prospects to play in the tournament are forward Liam Kirk (No. 189 overall in 2018), as well as defensemen Ty Emberson (No. 73 overall in 2018) and Janis Moser (No. 60 overall in 2021).

The Coyotes will host the event on Sept. 17-20 at Gila River Arena and the Ice Den Scottsdale.

The tournament will feature six NHL teams, including the Coyotes.

The Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights of the Pacific Division will all be a part of the tournament. The Coyotes’ new Central Division rival, the Colorado Avalanche, will be there as well.

This marks the third time the NHL will hold the Rookie Faceoff after being held in Vegas in 2018 and Anaheim in 2019. The Coyotes were scheduled to host the tournament in 2020, but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coyotes have three games scheduled for the Rookie Faceoff, all at Gila River Arena.

Tickets and streaming information can be found here.
