Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

The goal was only Ekman-Larsson's second with the man advantage this season. Finishing this loss with a minus-1 rating, Ekman-Larsson now has failed to produce a plus rating in seven straight games, Thursday's contest being just his third game back since missing four games due to injury. Even in a down year, the Coyotes' defenseman carries undeniable fantasy value in all formats.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's road game versus Montreal, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Rick Tocchet relayed that Ekman-Larsson had a "good morning skate" Saturday, so he's certainly headed in the right direction. If he's deemed good to go, he'll immediately return to the top pairing as well as the first power play. The veteran defenseman has accrued 22 points, 111 shots and 104 hits over 53 games this year.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) won't play in Saturday's matchup versus the Bruins, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although coach Rick Tocchet said Ekman-Larsson had a "good morning skate," the 28-year-old blueliner will miss his fourth straight outing. Jakob Chychrun is expected to work on the top pairing in his place. Considering Ekman-Larsson has made good progress in recovery, he'll have a solid chance at suiting up Monday versus Montreal.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will miss Thursday's matchup with Carolina, Alan Robinson of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the third straight game on the shelf for Ekman-Larsson due to his lower-body issue. With Jason Demers (lower body) designated for injured reserve, the Coyotes blue line will need Alex Goligoski and Jordan Oesterle to take on bigger minutes. With just 22 points in 53 games this year, Ekman-Larsson will be hard pressed to register a third consecutive 40-plus point campaign.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will sit out his second straight game Tuesday versus the Oilers, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ekman-Larsson's unavailability leaves the Coyotes without some major firepower on the back end. Although he's slowed down a bit in the scoring department this season, the 28-year-old blueliner still owns 22 points (six goals, 16 assists), leaving him right in the thick of the viable fantasy options at the position. His next opportunity to return to action arrives Thursday versus the Hurricanes.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is not on the ice for warmups, indicating he will miss Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ekman-Larsson was initially a game-time call for Saturday's contest, but it appears he'll be forced to miss his first game of the season. The recently recalled Kyle Capobianco will slot into a third-pairing role. Ekman-Larsson will attempt to be ready to go for Tuesday's matchup with the Oilers.

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup versus the Blackhawks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ekman-Larsson was injured by a knee-on-knee hit from Dustin Brown during Thursday's loss to the Kings, and now his status is uncertain Saturday. The veteran blueliner hasn't missed a game yet this year, and he's accrued 22 points through 53 contests. Jason Demers (undisclosed) is also a game-time call, so Jordan Oesterle and Kyle Capobianco could both enter the lineup in their place.
