  • Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Should be healthy for start of 2018-19

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/18) Hjalmarsson (core) is expected to be ready for the start of next season's training camp, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

    The Swedish defender missed the final eight games of the 2017-18 campaign after suffering the injury, though he missed a total of 34 contests through injury this season. Hjalmarsson struggled like most of his Coyotes teammates this season, recording a disappointing one goal, eight assists and minus-3 rating -- the first time he's finished as a minus player since his rookie year. While he'll never be a defender that fantasy owners will rely upon, Hjalmarsson and the Desert Dogs should see something of a resurgence in 2018-19.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Out for balance of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/18) Hjalmarsson (lower body) will miss the rest of the season.

    The former Blackhawk finishes with nine points (one goal, eight assists) and 118 blocked shots over 48 games. Hjalmarsson was also bogged down by an upper-body issue earlier in the year, and his inability to provide much offense when healthy sapped what little fantasy value he had during his first tour with Arizona. Trevor Murphy and Kevin Connauton figure to see more playing time with Hjalmarsson out of commission.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Returns to Arizona, considered day-to-day

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/18) Hjalmarsson (lower body) returned to Arizona on Friday for additional evaluation and is considered day-to-day moving forward, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

    Hjalmarsson will miss Saturday's contest as a result, but the day-to-day tag suggests he could return before the end of the four-game road trip. An early signal of that possibility would be the veteran blueliner rejoining the team and returning to practice, so owners should be on the lookout for news on that front. Trevor Murphy will likely replace him in Saturday's lineup against the Panthers.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Exits due to injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/18) Hjalmarsson will not return to Thursday's game against the Hurricanes due to a lower-body injury.

    Hjalmarsson had to be helped off the ice and into the locker room after sustaining his injury late in the second period of Thursday's contest. The severity of his injury has yet to be determined, but he should be considered questionable at best for Saturday's matchup with the Panthers at this juncture.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Scores first goal in Arizona

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/18) Hjalmarsson helped his team steal a point with the game-tying goal in a 4-3 overtime loss to Edmonton on Monday.

    The fact that it's taken 39 games for Hjalmarsson to find twine speaks to just how much of ab defensive weapon he is. He's great to have on the team you root for, but in terms of fantasy, unless your league rewards defensive stats such as blocked shots, there's virtually nothing here for fantasy purposes.
