Sources tell TSN defenseman Derek Morris has given Phoenix Coyotes general manager Don Maloney a list of teams he would be willing to lift his no-trade clause to join.

In the meantime, Morris has decided it is best to not play and risk injury before a deal goes down and, as a result, was not in the lineup tonight when the Coyotes hosted the St Louis Blues.

Morris is in the final year of a contract with the Coyotes that pays him $3.95 million.
