The Coyotes reassigned Hill to AHL Tuscon on Monday. With Darcy Kuemper (lower body) expected to return from injured reserve soon, Hill's services were no longer needed with the big club. The 23-year-old was solid at the NHL level, registering a 2.62 GAA and .918 save percentage in 13 appearances. Barring another injury to Kuemper or Antti Raanta, Hill will likely finish out the season with AHL Tucson.
Hill made 30 saves in a 3-2 loss to Dallas on Wednesday. Hill made his first start in eight days but was handed his fifth straight loss when Jamie Oleksiak broke a 2-2 tie in the third period. Hill has a respectable .918 save percentage in his 13 appearances this season, but he has just a 2-4-3 record to show for it.
Hill will get the road start against the Stars on Wednesday, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports. With Darcy Kuemper (lower body) still on IR, Hill will get the nod in the first of back-to-back games. It's likely Antti Raanta plays Thursday versus the Blues. Hill has been excellent on the road this year with a .927 save percentage and 2.34 GAA over seven appearances, but a lack of offensive support has left him with a 1-3-1 record. Getting a win could be tough against counterpart Ben Bishop, but it's a favorable matchup for Hill, as the Stars rank 28th with 2.64 goals per home game.
Hill allowed three goals on 41 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. The Yotes' netminder has failed to record a win in four straight starts and now owns a 2-3-3 record in 12 games played in 2019-20. Even in deeper fantasy leagues, Hill is tough to trust. Arizona finishes its road trip in Ottawa on Thursday, and it's unlikely Hill will get the start in that contest.
Hill will tend the visitor's crease during Tuesday's game in Toronto, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. Hill lost his last start, falling 4-2 to the Bruins, but gets another chance to pick up a win Tuesday in Toronto. He's not won since Jan. 14. The Maple Leafs will counter with Jack Campbell, so this matchup will feature a pair of backup netminders.
