Former Union defenseman Greg Coburn has been invited to the Phoenix Coyotes' training camp, the team announced Tuesday. Coburn just completed four days of Coyotes rookie camp.

The Coyotes' camp runs from Thursday until Saturday. The exhibition season for the Coyotes starts Sunday.

Coburn had signed with The Tampereen Ilves of the Finnish Elite League on June 3.

"Finland wasn't the right fit, and Phoenix was a good opportunity, so I came back," Coburn said.

In 153 career games with the Dutchmen, Coburn collected 20 goals and 53 assists.
