Chychrun picked up an assist and added three hits and six shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers. Chychrun has tallied a goal and four helpers in his last six games, as well as 10 hits in that span. It's unusual for the blueliner to have so many shots in the game, but he's up to a career-high 107 shots after Saturday. Chychrun also tied his career high in points at 20 with the helper, doing so in only 48 games, compared to the 68 contests it took in his rookie year of 2016-17.
Chychrun scored a goal and added an assist in a 2-0 win over the Flames on Thursday. Chychrun's helper came on a Clayton Keller goal in the first period before he unleashed a long shot early in the third period to double the lead. The blueliner is up to five goals and 18 points in 45 games. Over his last eight contests, he has two goals and four assists. The first-round pick from 2016 is just two points back of his career-high 20, set in his rookie year.
Chychrun scored a power-play tally in a 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks on Thursday. The goal, his fourth of the season, evened the score early in the third period. Chychrun has 14 points in 39 games this year, having missed time due to a bevy of injuries. Six of his points have come with the man advantage. The one concern for the 20-year-old defender is his propensity for injuries, as he's lost 68 games in his three-year career.
Chychrun failed to write his name on the scoresheet against Dallas on Saturday and managed just one shot on goal. Chychrun -- who was returning to the lineup following a four-game stint on the shelf -- logged 19:48 of ice time, which included 1:09 with the man addvantage, but failed to have much of a statistical impact. The bluerliner remains bogged down in a 13-game goal drought, with his next opportunity to tickle the twine coming Tuesday versus Vegas.
Chychrun (lower body) is expected to rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Stars, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Chychrun has already been activated off of injured reserve, per the NHL media site, which is another sign that he will make his return. He should supply additional offensive prowess along the Coyotes' blue line, having recorded 11 points through 32 games this season, fourth among Arizona blueliners despite missing 22 tilts. Chychrun should immediately slot into one of the top pairs as well as a power-play unit.
