The Phoenix Coyotes, who open the regular season Saturday in Los Angeles against the Kings, have reached a tentative contract agreement with center Robert Lang, contingent on him passing a physical.
Lang, a former Phoenix RoadRunner, spent last season with the Montreal Canadiens, where he tallied 18 goals and 39 points in 50 games. The year prior, he scored 21 goals for the Chicago Blackhawks.
He has also played for Detroit, Washington, Pittsburgh, Boston and Los Angeles in his 17-year career.
I have always rooted for Robert Lang, from way back when his name was pronounced LAH-ng and Barry Melrose wouldn't give him more than 3 shifts a game.
