Raanta (upper body) isn't expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Anaheim, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Although Raanta won't dress against the Ducks, he could be ready for Friday's clash with Colorado after logging a full practice Tuesday. The 31-year-old backstop has compiled a 2-0-1 record while posting a 3.63 GAA and a .902 save percentage in three appearances this season.
Raanta (upper body) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, but his status for Wednesday's matchup versus the Ducks is uncertain, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Even though Raanta's made significant progress and is on the brink of getting the green light, head coach Rick Tocchet stopped short of fully clearing the 31-year-old netminder. If he's forced to sit out Wednesday, Adin Hill likely will serve as Darcy Kuemper's backup.
Raanta (upper body) won't suit up for Monday's game versus the Ducks, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Darcy Kuemper is expected to get the starting nod, while Adin Hill will serve as the backup. Raanta practiced Monday, but head coach Rick Tocchet doesn't have a clear timeline for Raanta's return to the lineup.
Raanta (upper body) won't suit up for Saturday's game versus the Kings, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
The Coyotes aren't expected to rush Raanta back into the lineup, as Adin Hill is more than capable of serving as the backup and even taking the occasional start. Nevertheless, Raanta's next opportunity to play is Monday versus the Ducks.
Raanta (upper body) will not dress for Thursday's game versus the Kings, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
It's unclear how Raanta suffered the injury, but it will keep him out of action for at least one game. Darcy Kuemper is already confirmed for the start, while Adin Hill will serve as the backup. More should be known on Raanta's status prior to Saturday's game versus the Kings.
Raanta yielded five goals on 34 shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues.
Raanta had a 4-3 lead to protect in the third period after Dryden Hunt scored his first as a Coyote. The Finnish goalie couldn't hang on, as Jordan Kyrou netted an equalizer and Mike Hoffman won the game for the Blues in overtime. Raanta slipped to 2-0-1 with 11 goals allowed on 111 shots in three appearances this season. At best, Raanta may split time with Darcy Kuemper, but the latter has played better to this point in the season, making Raanta more of "1B" goalie.
Raanta will start in the home crease Saturday versus the Blues.
Backup goalies will get the start on both sides of the ice, as Ville Husso will tend twine for the Blues. Raanta has started just two games this year, recording a .922 save percentage and notching wins over the Sharks and the Blues, who have averaged three goals per game against the Coyotes this season.
Raanta stopped 40 of 43 shots in a 4-3 win over the Blues on Thursday.
Raanta had a shutout going until Mike Hoffman scored at 16:45 of the third period. The Blues struck twice more after that, but Raanta held on long enough to get the win. The Finn has given up three goals in each of his two starts this season, both wins. The Coyotes were previously scheduled to continue their road trip with a back-to-back in Minnesota over the weekend, but due to the Wild's COVID-19 situation, those games were postponed. Instead, Raanta and the Coyotes will remain in St. Louis for two more contests Saturday and Monday. Expect Raanta and Darcy Kuemper to split the two newly rescheduled games.
Raanta will patrol the crease during Thursday's road matchup with the Blues, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Raanta has been limited to one game this season due to an undisclosed issue. The 31-year-old Finn was pretty solid in his lone appearance, stopping 31 of 34 shots en route to a 5-3 win over the Sharks on Jan. 16. He'll attempt to remain unbeaten in a tough road matchup with a hot St. Louis squad that's won four straight games.
The Coyotes activated Raanta (undisclosed) off injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Raanta was sidelined for the past two games with an undisclosed issue, but has been cleared to return ahead of Thursday's game against the Ducks. The 31-year-old has seen just one start this season, stopping 31 of 34 shots in a 5-3 win over the Sharks. Now healthy, expect Raanta to return to back-up duties behind Darcy Kuemper with Adin Hill relegating to the No. 3 option.
Raanta (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup against Anaheim on Tuesday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Previous reports indicated Raanta would be activated off injured reserve prior to Tuesday's tilt, but it appears the team will wait at least one more game to make that decision. Darcy Kuemper will get the start Tuesday while Adin Hill serves as the backup with Raanta still unavailable. Once cleared to play, Raanta should at least push Kuemper for playing time, though whether he can steal some starts away remains to be seen.
Raanta (undisclosed) will be activated off injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's game versus Anaheim, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Raanta will miss Sunday's game versus Vegas due to his undisclosed issue, but he could be back between the pipes Tuesday against the Ducks. The 31-year-old backstop has made one start thus far this season, turning aside 31 of 34 shots en route to a 5-3 win over the Sharks last Saturday.
Raanta (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday, PuckPedia reports.
It's unclear why Raanta is on IR, but his destination will be backdated to Jan. 18, which means his next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against the Ducks. Adin Hill will serve as the primary backup for Darcy Kuemper for the time being.
Raanta won't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights for rest purposes, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Adin Hill will serve as Darcy Kuemper's backup Wednesday. Raanta won his only start this season, steering aside 31 of 34 shots against the Sharks.
Raanta made 31 saves in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.
Two of San Jose's goals came on the power play, and the third glanced off Jakob Chychrun's skate in the slot and over Raanta's shoulder on a seemingly harmless play. The 31-year-old netminder is closing in on his 100th career appearance with Arizona, and he should continue delivering strong numbers alongside Darcy Kuemper as the team tries to keep both its goalies healthy during the compacted campaign.
Raanta will start in the home crease Saturday against the Sharks, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Darcy Kuemper got the nod last game and let up three goals on 35 shots in the shootout loss, and now Raanta will get his turn in the blue paint. This serves as further evidence that head coach Rick Tocchet will favor a goaltending tandem in the shortened season. Raanta was excellent in net last year, posting a .921 save percentage and a 15-14-3 record as the 1B in Arizona.
Raanta came off the bench to stop five of six shots Wednesday in a 7-1 loss to Colorado in Game 5.
Arizona starter Darcy Kuemper was chased to the bench for the second straight game, giving up six goals on 30 shots through two periods. Enter Raanta, who gave up one goal in 20 minutes of action. Raanta turned in a .921 save percentage in 33 regular-season appearances, but once again ran into injuries. Durability issues may prevent the 31-year-old from ever becoming a full-time No. 1 again at the NHL level.
Raanta was in net for the third period of Monday's 7-1 loss to the Avalanche, stopping five of eight shots as the Coyotes dropped Game 4 of their first-round series.
Darcy Kuemper gave up four goals through two periods, forcing coach Rick Tocchet to make the switch in net, but it was clear right away the move hadn't woken up a slumbering Arizona defense -- Cale Makar went untouched on a rush from his own blue line to score just 19 seconds into the final period. With the Coyotes facing elimination in Game 5 on Monday, Raanta could get the start to try and shake up a club that desperately needs some kind of spark.
Raanta (undisclosed) will dress as Darcy Kuemper's backup for Friday's Game 2 against the Avalanche, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Raanta has yet to play this postseason due to an undisclosed injury, but he's finally fit to play, and he could be in goal as soon as Saturday for the second half of a back-to-back set with Colorado. The 31-year-old netminder played pretty well during the regular season, maintaining a .921 save percentage through 33 appearances.
Raanta (undisclosed) practiced Tuesday but won't be in the lineup against Colorado on Wednesday for Game 1, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.
At the end of the day, Darcy Kuemper was always going to be the preferred option between the pipes, so who slots in as the No. 2 shouldn't be a factor for DFS players. If Raanta continues to progress, he could rejoin the lineup versus the Avs in Game 2 on Friday.
