  • Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Returning Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hjalmarsson (upper body) will return to action Monday against the Maple Leafs, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. The longtime Blackhawk has played in 12 games this year, notching three assists and eight shots on goal. Hjalmarsson has averaged 21:42 per game, so the Coyotes will be glad to get his minutes back in the lineup.

  • Hjalmarsson (upper body) won't play Saturday, but there's a chance he'll be available for Monday's game against Toronto, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports. Hjalmarsson's return to action will bolster the Coyotes' depth at defense, but it won't mean much for fantasy owners, as he's only notched three assists while posting an ugly minus-7 rating in 12 games this campaign. The Swedish rearguard remains on injured reserve, so Arizona should release another update on his status once he's activated.

  • Hjalmarsson (upper body) will not suit up Tuesday against the Jets, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Hjalmarsson will miss his eight consecutive game Tuesday, but there is hope that he will be able to play at some point during this road trip, which ends Monday night in Toronto. The veteran blueliner posted a brutal minus-7 rating though the first 12 games, but his experience and leadership is necessary for a young Coyotes team moving forward.

  • Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Traveling with team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hjalmarsson (upper body) left with Arizona for the start of its road trip and could return as soon as Tuesday against Winnipeg, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports. The big man has been sidelined since Oct. 30 with his ailment, and if he doesn't play Tuesday he'll likely return within the next week. Hjalmarsson had put up three points in 15 games before the injury, but where he really shines is shot blocking -- he finished with the sixth most in the NHL last season and has blocked a shot in every game he's played in 2017-18.
