GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have activated defencemen Ed Jovanovski and Zbynek Michalek off injured reserve.

Jovanovski, a five-time NHL all-star, has five goals and eight assists in 16 games, making him the leading scorer among Phoenix defencemen. He has missed the last eight games because of a lower-body injury.

Michalek, with a goal and four assists in 15 games, sat out the last nine games, also because of a lower-body injury.

In another move, the Coyotes reassigned defenceman Shaun Heshka to their American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio.
