Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will join the club for its six-game road trip, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Ekman-Larsson remains week-to-week at this point but the fact that he will make the trip and begin practicing is an indication he will be back sooner rather than later. In two outings prior to getting hurt, Ekman-Larsson garnered three assists, four shots and three hits while averaging 19:22 of ice time. While he will likely slowly ramp up his minutes once healthy, Ekman-Larsson should get closer to the 23-24 minutes mark once up to full fitness.

In his place, Kyle Capobianco or Jordan Gross will enter the lineup.
Ekman-Larsson had to be helped off the ice after taking Evander Kane's stick to the back of his neck in the third period of Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.
Per Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan, coach Rick Tocchet didn't have an update on Ekman-Larsson's status following the contest. OEL was having a big game prior to getting driven into the boards by Kane behind the Coyotes net, tying his career high with three assists, one of which came on the power play. Arizona's next game comes Monday in Vegas, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Ekman-Larsson isn't able to suit up.
Ekman-Larsson will remain with the Coyotes according to his agent, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
In somewhat dramatic fashion, Ekman-Larsson set a Friday deadline after expressing his willingness to waive his trade protection and accept a move to either Boston or Vancouver. If no deal came to fruition, he said he'd stay with the Coyotes -- which was his desire -- and it appears he's remained true to his word. OEL will continue anchoring the Arizona blue line, but with only 30 points (nine goals) in 66 games last year, fantasy managers should probably be a little concerned with his output going forward.

But a change in ownership and management in Arizona has clearly changed the franchise's commitment to Ekman-Larsson.
