Kyle Chipchura C PHO 10 Months
Kyle Chipchura tallied two goals in Phoenix's 4-2 victory over Vancouver on Tuesday night.
Chipchura has scored four of his five goals of the season in his past four games, so he's definitely picked up his play offensively. His career high for goals in a season is six, so he should break this personal best. However, Phoenix does not rely heavily on Chipchura and he should not be looked upon as a serious fantasy option moving forward.

Kyle Chipchura has signed on to play with the Arizona Sundogs of the CHL.
Chipchura signed a one-year deal with the Coyotes in early July and rather than wait out the lockout, the former first round pick decided to play with the Coyotes Central Hockey League affiliate. "We are excited to have such a talented guy join our team." Sundogs GM Chris Presson said. "He brings with him the experience that we are looking for. He has helped his teams on more than one occasion reach the championships, so he knows what it takes." Chipchura is a defensive minded center who had three goals and 16 points in 53 NHL games last season.

Kyle Chipchura scored the first playoff goal of his NHL career and added an assist in the Coyotes' Game 6, 4-0 series-clinching win at Chicago.
Chipchura's goal was window dressing as it came with 5:04 remaining and accounted for the final margin. His assist was anything but fluff as it came on Gilbert Brule's goal early in the final period to give Phoenix a 2-0 lead. Chipchura was a plus-2 on the evening.
