A medical procedure showed Raanta's lower-body injury to be more serious than what was initially thought, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports. Raanta underwent a medical procedure recently to investigate a lower-body injury, and the results turned out to be worse than expected. At this point, there's a real possibility that his season is over. The team has not confirmed what most suspect to be true, so we'll have to wait and see how it handles the situation in the coming days. For now, Raanta has been listed as out indefinitely and won't be playing anytime soon.
According to Coyotes GM John Chayka, Raanta (lower body) could miss the rest of the season, Catherine Silverman of The Athletic reports. We recommend waiting for official confirmation from the Coyotes that Raanta will be out for the remainder of the season. Silverman is a credible source, though, and she's relayed from Chayka that Raanta's injury looks worse than originally thought based on further "imaging and testing" that's been performed on Arizona's top netminder. This is a developing situation, and all fantasy owners can hope for is a more positive spin from the team account.
Raanta (lower body) is listed as week-to-week moving forward, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports. Raanta has already missed the past four games, but the Coyotes brass wants to make sure the No. 1 goalie is given ample time to rest and recover since he's spent a lot of time battling injuries in 2018-19. Adin Hill -- who had a four-game winning streak snapped Thursday -- figures to serve as the team's primary netminder moving forward.
Raanta (lower body) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Raanta just cannot seem to stay healthy, but the silver lining for the Coyotes is that Adin Hill has been stellar in his place, with the 22-year-old goalie having won four of his first five games this season with a minuscule 0.56 GAA and correspondingly superb .977 save percentage over that span. If you need help in goal for fantasy hockey purposes, check to see if Hill is available.
Raanta (lower body) won't dress for Thursday's game against the Capitals, NHL.com's Alan Robinson reports. Raanta will miss a fourth consecutive game Thursday, but he's been practicing with his teammates since Monday, so he should be ready to return soon. Rookie Adin Hill has been exceptional during Raanta's absence, so there's no reason for the Coyotes to rush the Finnish netminder back before he's fully healthy.
