Raanta (lower body) will not dress for Tuesday's road game against the Red Wings, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Raanta will miss his fifth consecutive game due to the lower-body injury. The Finn's absence has caused the 'Yotes to rely exclusively on career backup Darcy Kuemper, who's posted a 1-2-1 record, 3.50 GAA and .896 save percentage without Raanta in the picture. Hunter Miska reportedly will stay on board as the backup in the upcoming clash against Detroit.
Raanta (lower body) won't play versus the Red Wings on Tuesday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports. Raanta is skating, but head coach Rick Tocchet wants him to practice a few times before he gets back into action. The Coyotes are probably itching to put the Finn between the pipes, as he has a 2.10 GAA and .929 save percentage in nine games this year. For now, Darcy Kuemper will remain the interim number-one goal for Arizona.
Raanta (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Saturday's game against the Penguins, NHL.com's Wes Crosby reports. Raanta is still dealing with a lower-body injury, so he'll likely take the day off while Hunter Miska backs up Darcy Kuemper against Pittsburgh. Another update on the 29-year-old Finn's status should be released prior to Sunday's matchup with Washington.
Raanta (lower body) will not dress for Thursday's matchup with the Flyers, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Raanta -- who is traveling with the team despite being placed on injured reserve -- will watch from the press box as Darcy Kuemper starts and Hunter Miska serves as the backup. When healthy, Raanta has performed well this season, including his current three-game winning streak in which he posted a 1.66 GAA. Until he is back to 100 percent, Kuemper should figure to see the majority of the minutes in the crease.
Raanta (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports that Raanta's move to IR was made retroactive to Nov. 6, so he is eligible to return to action next Tuesday against the Red Wings. In the meantime, Darcy Kuemper will take over as the Coyotes' No. 1 netminder.
