Coyotes lose Richardson
Dave Vest: Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet on Richardson, who was put on the IR with an upper-body injury: “I feel bad for ‘Richie’ because he’s having a great year for us. Hopefully he can bounce back in a month, and we can get him back quickly. It’s a big blow, but we’re used to it around here right now.”
McAvoy could return tonight
Johns still out
1. It’s not just a hockey injury and he’s the only one that will know when he’ll be ready.
2. No one is more frustrated with this then Johns. Who gets asked all the time by people care (teammates etc) and there aren’t answers.
Green back, DeKeyser close and Daly still weeks away
Defenseman Danny DeKeyser could return to the lineup next week.
Defenseman Trevor Daley won’t be back until February.
Brickley out week-to-week
Thomas and Bozak not traveling
Forward Alex Steen is on the IR with an upper-body injury but is traveling with the team. Looks like he is the closest to returning.
