Coyotes' Antti Raanta: GM admits season in jeopardy
A medical procedure showed Raanta's lower-body injury to be more serious than what was initially thought, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta underwent a medical procedure recently to investigate a lower-body injury, and the results turned out to be worse than expected. At this point, there's a real possibility that his season is over. The team has not confirmed what most suspect to be true, so we'll have to wait and see how it handles the situation in the coming days. For now, Raanta has been listed as out indefinitely and won't be playing anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Darcy Kuemper: Return imminent
Kuemper is on the verge of returning from his lower-body injury, Catherine Silverman of The Athletic reports.
According to GM John Chayka, Kuemper is on the mend, but now it's a matter of the goaltender getting his timing back. There could be plenty of attention on Kuemper in the near term since news just broke that Arizona's chief backstop, Antti Raanta (lower body), could miss the rest of the season, pending an official update from the Coyotes. Check to see if Kuemper is available in your fantasy league as a potential free-agent pickup in case it's determined that Raanta truly isn't fit to return in 2018-19.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Season may be over
According to Coyotes GM John Chayka, Raanta (lower body) could miss the rest of the season, Catherine Silverman of The Athletic reports.
We recommend waiting for official confirmation from the Coyotes that Raanta will be out for the remainder of the season. Silverman is a credible source, though, and she's relayed from Chayka that Raanta's injury looks worse than originally thought based on further "imaging and testing" that's been performed on Arizona's top netminder. This is a developing situation, and all fantasy owners can hope for is a more positive spin from the team account.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Adin Hill: Falling back to earth
Hill allowed four goals on 32 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Sharks on Saturday.
Well, Hill's magical run to begin the season is done. After posting a .977 save percentage in his first five appearances, Hill has yielded seven goals in his last two starts. Still, Hill's stat line is impressive. He is 4-2-0 with a .939 save percentage and a 1.62 GAA. Don't be surprised if the rookie netminder gets another start for the Coyotes soon.... See More ...

Coyotes' Adin Hill: Facing San Jose
Hill will start between the pipes in Saturday's home game against the Sharks, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.
Hill finally looked human in his last start Thursday against the Capitals, surrendering three goals on 28 shots en route to his first loss in five starts. The rookie netminder will look to bounce back and pick up his fifth victory of the season in a home matchup with a Sharks team that's averaging 2.63 goals per game on the road this campaign, 21st in the NHL....

Coyotes' Michael Bunting: Jumps to big club
The Coyotes recalled Bunting from AHL Tucson on Friday.
Arizona's forwards are littered with injuries, so Bunting was brought up to provide depth and work in the bottom six. He's in his fourth season in the AHL and is still looking for his NHL debut. Bunting has 18 points in 20 minor-league games this year but it remains to be seen if his play can translate to another rank.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Considered week-to-week
Raanta (lower body) is listed as week-to-week moving forward, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta has already missed the past four games, but the Coyotes brass wants to make sure the No. 1 goalie is given ample time to rest and recover since he's spent a lot of time battling injuries in 2018-19. Adin Hill -- who had a four-game winning streak snapped Thursday -- figures to serve as the team's primary netminder moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Considered week-to-week
Hinostroza is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Hinostroza's absence will test the Coyotes' depth up front, but it shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched four goals and 12 points in 27 games this campaign. The 24-year-old American undoubtedly will be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Adin Hill: Drops first game
Hill allowed three goals on 28 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.
Hill lost for the first time this season, taking his record to 4-1-0. The unrefined goalie has played quite impressively in limited action, owning an impressive 1.09 GAA and .957 save percentage as the de facto starting option with Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper both held out with lower-body injuries for Arizona....

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Suffers lower-body injury
Hinostroza suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old forward will be reevaluated Friday, so an expected timetable for his recovery should be announced soon. If Hinostroza's unable to go Saturday against San Jose, Conor Garland will likely draw into the lineup against the Sharks.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Shows up on IR
Raanta (lower body) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Raanta just cannot seem to stay healthy, but the silver lining for the Coyotes is that Adin Hill has been stellar in his place, with the 22-year-old goalie having won four of his first five games this season with a minuscule 0.56 GAA and correspondingly superb .977 save percentage over that span. If you need help in goal for fantasy hockey purposes, check to see if Hill is available.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Out again
Raanta (lower body) won't dress for Thursday's game against the Capitals, NHL.com's Alan Robinson reports.
Raanta will miss a fourth consecutive game Thursday, but he's been practicing with his teammates since Monday, so he should be ready to return soon. Rookie Adin Hill has been exceptional during Raanta's absence, so there's no reason for the Coyotes to rush the Finnish netminder back before he's fully healthy.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Adin Hill: Gets starting nod
Hill will guard the goal in Thursday's home game against the Capitals, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.
Hill has been unstoppable since joining the big club on Nov. 24, picking up four consecutive wins while posting a ridiculous 0.56 GAA and .977 save percentage over that span. The 22-year-old netminder will look to keep rolling and pick up a fifth straight win in a home matchup with a Capitals club that's averaging 3.46 goals per game on the road, fifth in the NHL, this campaign....

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Scores on power play in win
Schmaltz notched his second power-play goal since being traded and helped his team earn a 2-1 win over the Kings on Tuesday.
Schmaltz has fit in the desert about as well as a cactus, scoring five points in his first four games with Arizona. He's getting opportunities with his new team and cashing in on them, so he's a nice add to make if he's available in your league.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Lawson Crouse: Scores shortie in victory
Crouse scored with his team down a man in the first period, helping his squad to a 2-1 win over Los Angeles.
Crouse has now matched his career high in goals with five and appears to have made some progress as an offensive option this year, as he's increased his shooting percentage to 12.2. However, with just six points, he's still only a real factor in leagues that reward penalty minutes and/or hits.... See More ... See Less
