For Phoenix Coyotes defenceman Keith Yandle, living in the desert is a treat. He can go anywhere and not be recognized.

"I went to Best Buy, Home Depot and Fry's grocery store," the all-star told Fox Sports Arizona. "I was in each of them for probably a half-hour to 45 minutes, and I didn't get recognized once.

"It's fine for me flying under the radar. It's nice to be able to do my thing."

Yandle is among the highest-profile players on the incognito Coyotes and has the highest salary at $4.75 million.

Rostislav Klesla also enjoys going about town unrecognized.

"Nobody's looking at you, nobody cares what you're wearing, how you talk, who you talk to and what you're doing," the defenceman said. "You can life your life, and I like it."

Sounds exactly like the place Ilya Bryzgalov should be playing. Oh right, he used to be there.
