Boedker (spleen) has been given a qualifying offer by the Coyotes, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

The German winger saw last season end prematurely thanks to a ruptured spleen, but is expected to make a full recovery in time for training camp. It doesn't seem likely that another team will swoop in with an offer sheet for Boedker, so he'll quite likely suit up for the Coyotes again in 2015-16. It could be a breakout year if he can stay healthy, as the Coyotes look like they'll have to lean heavily on Boedker, who was on an 82-game pace for his second straight 50-point season last year, picking up 14 goals and 14 assists in 45 contests.

Boedker (stomach) confirmed Tuesday that he anticipates being ready for training camp in September.

In a blog post he penned for the team's website, Boedker indicated that he's progressing well in his recovery from a ruptured spleen. "I'm feeling good and a lot stronger than just a few weeks ago," Boedker said. "My rehab and workouts are going well. I'm not quite there yet but I'll get there. I'm about five pounds short of reaching my target weight so it's not a big deal." Boedker went on to confirm that he'll be "100 percent ready" for training camp and said that he plans to "skate as much as I can this summer."

Boedker (ruptured spleen) is without a timetable for a return, but hopes to be able to play this season, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Boedker underwent successful surgery on his ruptured spleen on Jan. 20 and was initially expected to miss 4-6 weeks. According to McLellan, Boedker has been making some progress in his recovery, but it's unclear when he'll return to the ice.

Coach Dave Tippett said Thursday that Boedker lost approximately 20 pounds due to the ruptured spleen, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Boedker has been out of the hospital for almost a couple weeks now, but he's still trying to regain some weight after the scary incident. The forward has yet to resume skating and isn't expected to be back in action for another 2-to-4 weeks.

Boedker (ruptured spleen) will rejoin the team in Arizona on Thursday, but will remain out for another 3-to-5 weeks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Boedker had been hospitalized in Winnipeg after a hit to the gut during a game against the Jets prior to the All-Star break required surgery. He's been resting comfortably for several days, and expects to have the stitches on his chest removed Sunday or Monday. The Coyotes will probably keep Boedker off the ice for another week or two before he tries to work himself back into playing shape.

Boedker (upper body) has been placed on IR by the Coyotes, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

With the Coyotes having referred to Boedker as week-to-week earlier Monday, his placement on IR is not surprising. At this stage, there is no timetable for Boedker's potential return to action.

Boedker is listed as week-to-week by the Coyotes with an upper-body injury.

The week-to-week classification suggests that Boedker -- who leads the Coyotes with 14 goals -- could miss a decent chunk of time, starting with Tuesday's game against Chicago.
