In what has emerged as an accessory to the ownership saga that has plagued the Coyotes for the past three years, the uncertainty surrounding captain Shane Doan's future with the franchise may be nearing a resolution.

Doan will chat over the phone with potential buyer Greg Jamison Friday in what appears as a last-ditch effort to gain insight into the status of Jamison's bid to purchase the Coyotes. If Doan's camp doesn't receive the reassurance it's seeking, talks with other interested teams are likely to begin.
