Downie (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Predators, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Downie has missed the Coyotes' last nine games with an upper-body injury, but was able to practice with the team Monday, indicating he's likely nearing a return to game action. The 28-year-old winger, who has tallied three points (one goal, two assists) in 14 games this season, will hope to draw back into Arizona's lineup Thursday against the Red Wings.
Downie (upper body) returned to practice Monday, Craig Morgan of the Arizona Republic reports. Downie has now missed three weeks since sustaining an upper-body injury, but he appears to be nearing a return. He'll be reevaluated Tuesday and plans to travel with the team for that day's contest against the Predators. A mid-week return seems possible at this point, either Tuesday or Thursday against the Red Wings.
Downie (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. The exact nature and extent of the injury is still somewhat unclear, but Downie had already missed two weeks with the upper-body ailment so the move is more of a procedural one. Louis Domingue was recalled from the AHL in a corresponding move.
Downie (upper body) didn't make the trip to Columbus for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. The Coyotes' next four games will all be played on the road, which could indicate that the team doesn't expect Downie will be ready to return to action until after their four-game road trip. If that's the case, Downie won't have an opportunity to slot back into Arizona's lineup until Nov. 25 against the Ducks.
Downie is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and will not play Thursday against the Oilers. Downie, who has recorded three points (one goal, two assists) in 14 games this season, will hope to return to action Saturday against Columbus. John Scott is expected to slot into the Coyotes' lineup Thursday against Edmonton in Downie's absence.
