Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet divulged Friday that Goligoski (lower body) is considered day-to-day despite his placement on injured reserve and has a chance to play next Wednesday against Vegas, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tocchet said that it's still too early to provide official word on Goligoski's status for the contest, but his comments suggest that the blueliner will not remain on injured reserve too long. His return to action should be preceded by his activation off of injured reserve.

Goligoski (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski has already missed three games due to the lower-body injury he suffered Nov. 8 against the Flyers, and it appears as though he'll likely be sidelined for at least a few more now that he's been moved to IR. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status should surface once he's cleared to return to practice.

Goligoski (lower body) is day-to-day and won't dress for Thursday's matchup with the Predators, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski is set to miss his fourth straight outing as a result of his lower-body problem, having last played Nov. 8 versus the Flyers. With Jakob Chychrun (upper body) also dealing with an injury, Ilya Lyubushkin figures to slot into the lineup for the time being.

Goligoski (lower body) skated Monday, but is out for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems like Goligoski is nearing his return, but he will be missing his third-straight game with this injury. His next chance to return will be Thursday against the Predators. However, the Coyotes should be able to manage against Detroit, as Jacob Chychrun (knee) is expected to make his season debut.

Goligoski (lower body) will not dress for Saturday's game against the Penguins, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski's absence will leave a significant void along the blue line on the offensive end of the ice, as he's totaled seven points -- one goal and six assists -- through 14 contests this season. Without the veteran, either Dakota Mermis or Ilya Lyubushkin will presumably draw in.

Goligoski left Thursday's game against Philadelphia with a lower-body injury and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski played just 1:21 before leaving Thursday's contest and an update on his status moving forward should come after the game. Meanwhile, the 33-year-old blueliner was originally questionable to face the Flyers, but ultimately received the green light to play. However, now it appears as though he will miss some time.

Goligoski (undisclosed) is on the ice for pregame warmups, indicating he'll be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Flyers, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski was considered a game-time call for Thursday's contest, but it appears he'll slot into his usual role skating on the Coyotes' second pairing and second power-play unit against Philadelphia. The veteran blueliner has notched one goal and seven points in 13 contests this campaign.

Goligoski will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup with Philadelphia, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski was absent from practice Wednesday with what was described as a maintenance day, but it appears whatever is ailing the defenseman could be slightly more serious. In the even the 33-year-old us unable to give it a go, Dakota Mermis or Ilya Lyubushkin would figure to slot into the lineup in Goligoski's stead.

Goligoski has yet to earn a point this season, despite averaging over 20 minutes of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski set a career high in goals last season (12) and hit the 35-point mark for the fifth consecutive season, but is off to a rough start this season with nothing but seven shots and a minus-7 rating to show for it. Even with his struggles, the 33-year-old is unlikely to lose his spot in the lineup and should eventually get out of his slump.
