Chychrun sank a power-play goal in Saturday's 6-1 home win over the Blues. It's hard not to root for the 20-year-old given that he's had a heck of a time staying healthy early in his career. This was Chychrun's seventh game as part of the 2018-19 campaign, as he missed all of training camp and the first 16 contests due to a knee injury, and then an upper-body issue surfaced in mid-November. Sure, there's risk in deploying Arizona's first-round (16th overall) pick from the 2016 draft, but Chychrun is averaging more than 20 minutes of ice time with a role carved out on the No. 2 power play, so you could do much worse than to use him as a depth defenseman in fantasy hockey.
Playing in just his second game of the season Wednesday, Chychrun tallied an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas. The 20-year-old blueliner will hope to stay healthy moving forward, fortunate to have finally received clearance to return to Arizona's lineup Wednesday after missing practically the entire first quarter of the season. In just his second game, Chychrun notched his first point of 2018-19 while also blocking a team-high four shots. Next up for him and the Coyotes is a date with the Avalanche on Friday.
Chychrun (upper body) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against Vegas, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Chychrun has missed 15 of the first 16 games of the campaign due to injury, so he'll hope to avoid the injury bug now that he's once again been cleared to play. The 20-year-old blueliner is expected to skate with Niklas Hjalmarsson on Arizona's second pairing against the Golden Knights.
Chychrun (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's home clash against the Golden Knights, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Chychrun just cannot seem to stay healthy, as he sustained an upper-body injury after making his long-awaited return from an ACL tear last Wednesday. The Florida native remains on injured reserve, but we can picture him being activated if he looks good in the next on-ice session.
Chychrun (upper body) remains day-to-day despite his placement on injured reserve, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports. Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet noted that it's still too early to know whether or not Chychrun will be available for next Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights, but he can't be ruled out for the contest at this point either. Regardless, it appears the blueliner's stay on injured reserve will be fairly short.
