Player Outlook

Tobias Rieder sustained an ankle injury during the IIHF World Championships that required surgery, so there's an outside chance he's a little behind the eight ball to begin training camp. The 24-year-old winger has played well through his first three seasons in the league with 43 goals and 92 points through 234 games. However, Rieder appears to trending into a defensive specialist after beginning just 39.2 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the offensive zone in 2016-17. Additionally, with Arizona's offseason acquisitions and internal promotions, Rieder might struggle to carve out a consistent role on a scoring line.

Player News
  • Rieder (ankle) is projected to skate at right wing this season, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports reports. As Morgan alluded to, Rieder spent some time on the right wing in 2016-17, and the reason he's likely to continue there is that it's a position of need for the Coyotes. Rieder recorded a career-best 16 goals in 80 games last campaign, but he suffered a foot injury while playing for Germany in the IIHF World Championship that required surgery, so there may be an adjustment period before he gets back to his best.

  • Rieder underwent ankle surgery for an injury that he sustained during the IIHF World Championship and has a recovery timeline of 8-to-12 weeks, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports reports. Rieder only managed to play in three of eight games for Germany in the international tournament, adding a single goal over that span. Even if it takes him the full three months to get back to 100 percent, the forward should be healthy before the start of the regular season. His 2016-17 campaign included 16 goals, 18 assists and a minus-8 rating, which actually represents the best single-season rating of his NHL career that is three years old.

  • Rieder scored an unassisted goal during Thursday's loss to Florida. While the tally snapped a three-game point drought, Rieder has actually been a solid offensive contributor down the stretch for the Coyotes. He's collected three goals and six assists through 12 games this month, leading the team in points. The German winger's low shot volume (1.94 shots per game) and weak supporting cast limit his fantasy upside, though, so it's still best to leave Rieder to deep seasonal leagues.

  • Coyotes' Tobias Rieder: Stays hot in Saturday's win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rieder posted a goal and a power-play assist in Saturday's 6-5 win against the Devils. Rieder has been on fire in the month of March with two goals and six points through five games. He is seeing time on the power play and doing well with two assists on the man advantage over the past four contests. The German-born forward has plenty of potential and he might be starting to realize it. Still, he is only worth a look in deeper fantasy pools at the moment.

  • Rieder scored a shorthanded goal and added an assist Thursday in a 6-3 loss to the Sabres. That goal will settle in on his highlight reel, as he stole the puck and absolutely undressed Robin Lehner. Unfortunately, moments like that have been few and far between for Rieder, who had just four points in his past 14 games coming in. The talent's always been there, but we're still waiting for the 24-year-old's big breakout. Keep Thursday's impressive play in the back of your mind, though, in case he starts stringing some points together.
