      Coyotes' Steve Downie: Placed on injured reserve Monday

      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.

      Coyotes' Steve Downie: Not travelling with team

      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.

      Coyotes' Steve Downie: Records one assist through five games

      Downie has recorded a single assist, but has zero goals to show for his efforts after five games in the 2015-16 season. Downie has played an average of 9:41 minutes on the fourth-line this year with counterparts Jordan Martinook and Boyd Gordon. They have recorded a total of one goal this season, but most of Downie's fantasy value has come from his 18 penalty minutes, which puts him at sixth in the league for total penalty minutes.

    • Coyotes Ink Downie To One-Year Pact

      News: Steve Downie agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.75 million contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
      Analysis: Steve Downie showcased an ability to pitch in as a depth scorer (14 goals, 28 points in 72 games) and ruffle the feathers of the opposition (a league-leading 238 PIM) last season with Pittsburgh, attributes that should earn him increased ice time in the desert. The Coyotes don't have much depth to speak of at either of the wing spots, which could potentially result in Downie settling into a second- or third-line role.
    • Pens' Downie Ready To Return Friday

      News: Steve Downie (upper body) says he will be ready to play Friday against the Islanders, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
      Analysis: Steve Downie missed the past two games with the injury, but with the Penguins needing all hands on deck in order to secure one of the available playoff spots, it looks like he'll be able to enter the lineup even if it's at less than optimal health. With 14 goals and 28 points over 70 games, Downie has delivered some useful offensive numbers from his bottom-six role, but it's his penchant for skirting the law that has made him a boon for fantasy owners. His 236 penalty minutes lead the league by a wide margin.
    • Pens' Downie Set To Miss Another Game

      News: Steve Downie (upper body) appears unlikely to play Tuesday against the Senators, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
      Analysis: Steve Downie didn't skate Tuesday morning, putting him on track to sit out a second straight contest. The Penguins haven't provided any word that a long-term absence is in store for Downie, so he can be considered day-to-day in advance of Friday's match against the Islanders.
    • Pens' Downie (Upper Body) Out Sunday

      News: Steve Downie is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, and he will not play in Sunday's game against the Flyers.
      Analysis: The day-to-day designation indicates Steve Downie has a shot to return before the end of the regular season, and the Penguins still have quite a bit to play for in terms of seeding. His remaining chances to play will come Tuesday (at OTT), Friday (vs. NYI) and Saturday (at BUF).
    • Pens' Downie Scores Third Goal In Nine Tilts

      News: Steve Downie scored his third power-play goal of the season Saturday against the Coyotes.
      Analysis: He was named the game's No. 2 star for his efforts. Steve Downie's fight against Shane Doan gives him 228 PIM, but just seven in his last six contests. That kind of self control could win him additional playing time down the stretch -- though it remains to be seen whether he can keep his emotions in check.
    • Pens' Downie Finds The Board Tuesday

      News: Steve Downie netted his 13th goal Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime loss against St. Louis.
      Analysis: Pens Coach Mike Johnston singled out Steve Downie's strong play following the game. The forward recently promised to temper his emotions and has now taken just one minor penalty in his last four contests.
