Coyotes' Nick Bjugstad: Lends assist in loss
Bjugstad provided an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Bjugstad continues to play well lately -- he has five points in his last four contests. The 30-year-old center set up Janis Moser's third-period tally to get the Coyotes within a goal. Bjugstad is at four goals, five assists, 33 shots, 38 hits and a plus-6 rating while averaging 15:54 of ice time per game, his highest mark since 2014-15.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Shayne Gostisbehere: Deals assist Sunday
Gostisbehere notched an assist and went minus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Gostisbehere had four assists and a plus-3 rating over his last three games since snapping a six-game slump. The 29-year-old blueliner hasn't been negatively impacted by the return of Jakob Chychrun -- it appears there's enough room on the Coyotes' blue line for both of them and Janis Moser to find success. Gostisbehere is at 14 points (five on the power play), 45 shots on net, 30 blocked shots and a minus-10 rating through 20 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Clayton Keller: Helpers in three straight games
Keller notched an assist, two shots on goal, two PIM and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Keller has assists in three straight games, and he's gotten on the scoresheet in 10 of 12 contests in November. He's accumulated five goals and eight helpers this month, giving him 21 points, 38 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 20 outings overall. The 24-year-old is one of the Coyotes' top forwards and one of their few attractive options in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Janis Moser: Contributes to failed comeback
Moser scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Moser has a five-game point streak, and he's gotten on the scoresheet in eight of the last nine games. Impressively, he's done all this on the road as the Coyotes navigate a brutal travel schedule due to arena availability. The 22-year-old defenseman is up to three goals, 10 assists, 25 shots on net, 39 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 20 outings while cementing himself as a top-four blueliner for a rebuilding team....

Coyotes' Lawson Crouse: Reaches 10-goal mark
Crouse scored a goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Crouse has four goals in his last four games, adding a plus-5 rating and 10 hits in that span. The winger has been a pleasant surprise for the Coyotes so far, racking up 10 goals, two assists, 37 shots on net, 50 hits, 10 PIM and a plus-1 rating in 20 contests. It's a 40-goal pace he's on, but he's also shooting an unsustainable 27 percent, so it's tough to expect this to last all year.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Scores again Sunday
Schmaltz scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Schmaltz has scored in three straight games, and he's added an assist in that span. The 26-year-old is thriving in a significant role -- the Coyotes list him on the third line, but he's regularly leading the team's forwards in ice time. In addition to his four points, he's picked up 15 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in five outings.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Matias Maccelli: Logs two more assists in loss
Maccelli picked up two assists in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Maccelli assisted on third-period goals from Lawson Crouse and Janis Moser. The 22-year-old has been a bright spot on a struggling Coyotes team with a goal and 12 assists through 18 games this season. Maccelli now has three multi-point outings on the season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Connor Ingram: Makes 24 saves in loss
Ingram allowed four goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
Ingram has now gone five consecutive starts without a win, with his lone victory this season coming Oct. 25 against Columbus. The 25-year-old netminder fell to 1-5-1 with a .882 save percentage. While Ingram has looked impressive at times this year, he won't be viable for fantasy purposes as the backup on a struggling Arizona team.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Josh Brown: Remains sidelined
Brown (upper body) won't play Sunday against Minnesota.
Brown has been out since being injured Nov. 21 against Nashville. It is unclear at this time when he will be available to return. The Coyotes will visit the Kings on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Connor Ingram: Starting versus Minnesota
Ingram will guard the road net Sunday against Minnesota, Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports.
Ingram is coming off a 42-save effort this past Monday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Nashville. He has a 1-4-1 record this season with a 4.00 GAA and an .885 save percentage. As a member of Nashville last year, Ingram posted a 33-save performance versus the Wild in a 5-2 victory.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Shayne Gostisbehere: Offers helper in shootout loss
Gostisbehere notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings.
Gostisbehere has bounced back from a six-game point drought by recording three assists in his last two contests. He set up Jakob Chychrun for the game-tying goal with 26 seconds left in regulation in this game. Gostisbehere is up to 13 points (five on the power play), 44 shots on net, a minus-8 rating and 30 blocked shots in 19 outings while playing in a top-four role.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Clayton Keller: Assists in consecutive games
Keller notched an assist and went plus-3 in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings.
Keller set up a Janis Moser goal in the second period. This was Keller's second straight game with an assist, and he's gotten on the scoresheet in nine of 11 contests in November, earning 12 points. For the season, the winger has seven tallies, 13 helpers, 36 shots on net and a minus-5 rating. The return of Nick Schmaltz should help Keller maintain steady offense -- the two have displayed strong chemistry as the Coyotes' most talented scoring forwards.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Juuso Valimaki: Rejoins Coyotes on Friday
Valimaki (upper body) logged 15:53 of ice time in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit.
Valimaki missed Wednesday's 4-0 win against Carolina because of the injury. He had no points, two PIM and a block in his return Friday. That gives him a goal, six points, 10 PIM, 16 blocks and six hits in 16 games this season. He doesn't have a particularly big role with the team and unless that changes, his scoring pace is unlikely to get any better than it is right now.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Karel Vejmelka: Can't hold back Red Wings
Vejmelka stopped 33 of 36 shots through overtime in a 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit on Friday.
Vejmelka was beaten once in three shootout rounds. He's 6-5-2 with a 2.97 GAA and .916 save percentage in 14 games this season. This is the third time in his last four starts that he's allowed at least three goals.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Janis Moser: Scores in loss to Red Wings
Moser found the back of the net in a 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit on Friday.
Moser extended his point streak to four games. He's up to two goals and 12 points in 19 contests this season. He's a valuable part of the Coyotes' defense, but it is worth noting that the return of Jakob Chychrun on Monday from a wrist injury has pushed Moser to the second power-play unit. Six of Moser's 12 points have been recorded on the power play, so his reduced role might slow his scoring pace a bit in the long run.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Jakob Chychrun: Contributes two points Friday
Chychrun contributed a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit.
Chychrun has a goal and three points in three contests in 2022-23. He didn't make his season debut until Monday because of a wrist injury. Now that he's back, he's serving as a cornerstone of the Coyotes' defense and is getting time on Arizona's top power-play unit. He had seven goals and 21 points in 47 contests last season, which was a bit of a disappointing scoring pace for him. He should do better this season as long as he stays healthy.... See More ...

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Gets two points in loss
Schmaltz scored a goal and registered an assist in Arizona's 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit on Friday.
Schmaltz has two goals and three points in four games this season. He returned to the Coyotes' lineup Monday after missing 15 games because of a rib injury. Now that he's healthy, he's serving as one of the Coyotes' top forwards. He logged 22:54 of ice time, including 6:21 on the power play Friday. As long as he stays in this role, he might be able to record over 50 points this season even after factoring in the time he missed because of his injury.... See More ... See Less
