Steve Sullivan was questionable to play on Wednesday. The Phoenix Coyotes are glad he did because his three goals helped them beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-1.
That's the eighth hat trick of Sullivan's inspiring career. His future was in serious doubt during the tail end of his time with Nashville, but he's fought back to become an important player for the Phoenix Coyotes. His role indicates he could be Ray Whitney-lite, which could be good for a depth spot in many leagues.
