Martin Hanzal C PHO 22 Days

Hanzal (upper body) wasn't on the ice for morning skate and is thus likely to miss Thursday's game against the Jets, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Hanzal was previously a late scratch on Tuesday due to the injury, so he'll miss his second straight game. His absence will force to reshuffle their lineup, as Sam Gagner will move from the wing to take over as the second-line center, while Lucas Lessio and Mikkel Boedker flank him.

Hanzal will miss Tuesday's game against the Blues due to an upper-body injury, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Coyotes didn't hold a morning skate, so word of Hanzal's injury wasn't relayed until pregame warmups. The forward likely obtained the injury at some point during his one-goal, three-point performance over the weekend against the Blue Jackets. He's considered day-to-day.

Hanzal handed out three assists and went plus-4 in Tuesday's rout of the Oilers.

The fine outing marks Hanzal's first multi-point effort since his Nov. 14 hat trick against Vancouver, and just his third of the year overall. Those three games have accounted for nearly half of Hanzal's 17 points on the season, and yet even with that degree of inconsistency, he's essentially duplicating last year's scoring rate.

Hanzal netted a goal and spent four minutes in the penalty box in Saturday's loss to the Kings.

After witnessing the birth of his child a day earlier, Hanzal didn't join the Coyotes in Los Angeles until Saturday morning, but it didn't seem to affect his performance. The goal was Hanzal's first since Nov. 14 hat trick against the Canucks.

Hanzal (personal) joined the team in Los Angeles and looks ready to play Saturday against the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

After Hanzal missed Friday's practice to await the birth of his child, coach Dave Tippett said that the forward would be back in the lineup Saturday if he were able to rejoin the team in time. Assuming Tippett's word still holds, look for Hanzal to center a second line that includes Tobias Rieder and Sam Gagner.

Hanzal missed Friday's practice to be with his wife, who is expected to give birth to the couple's child, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

It's not clear if he plans on meeting the team in Los Angeles for Saturday's matinee tilt against the Kings. The Coyotes should provide an update on his status prior to the game, but if he remains away from the team, Alexandre Bolduc would likely be called upon to enter the lineup in his place.

Hanzal didn't register a point in 18:37 of ice time in his return to the lineup Tuesday, a loss to Colorado. He was minus-1, took four shots, had two PIM, and added two hits.

When he has been on the ice he has performed well with 11 points in 16 games, but injuries have sabotaged Hanzal in the past and has now missed seven games already this year. His health will determine his success the rest of the way.

Hanzal (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Avalanche, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

The lower-body injury forced Hanzal to miss the Coyotes' previous four games. After returning to practice Monday, Hanzal figures to slot back in as the Coyotes' second-line center, a spot where he's performed quite capably this season. He has five goals and 11 points over 15 games.

Hanzal (lower body) won't play Sunday against the Ducks but could return Tuesday, Sarah McLellan of Arizona Republic reports.

Hanzal skated prior to both weekend games, but won't play in either. It appears Tuesday's contest against the Avalanche is a more realistic goal, though that can't be guaranteed either.
