Korpikoski (mouth) will not return to the lineup for Saturday's season finale against the Ducks, Craig Morgan of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Korpikoski will only have missed 13 games on the season, but he's dealt with a number of injuries of every turn that have made him less reliable for fantasy owners. Of course, those who might have rostered Korpikoski probably only did so out of desperation, as the six goals, 21 points, and minus-27 rating he supplied didn't exactly make him a trendy waiver-wire pickup.

Korpikoski (mouth) won't play Saturday against the Penguins, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Korpikoski skipped Friday's practice due to the persistence of a swollen mouth as the result of a high stick to the face Tuesday. While he remains day-to-day with the issue, Saturday won't be his return date. Tye McGinn will likely continue to dress in his place.

Korpikoski -- who absorbed a high-stick to the mouth area on Tuesday -- will be re-evaluated as Thursday's game against the Sabres approaches, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Per the report, the high stick left Korpikoski with two-to-three cuts in his mouth area, with a better read on the forward's status for Thursday's contest likely to arrive during the Coyotes' pre-game skate. Korpikoski recorded an assist Tuesday to up his point total for the season to 21 in 69 games, to go along with a minus-27 rating.

Korpikoski remained in the locker room after sustaining the cut, but his injury isn't believed to be a major concern. He appears on track to play Thursday in Buffalo, though his availability may not be verified until the Coyotes conduct their gameday skate.
