The Coyotes signed Shane Doan to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million on July 12th.
Doan, 39, bounced back from a disappointing 2014-15 season, by scoring 28 goals (his most since 2008-09) with 19 assists (47 points) in 72 games. Entering his 21st year with the Coyotes, Doan sits 96th in NHL history with 945 points, just 55 points short of 1,000 for his career. He will take a shot at 1,000, but hasn’t registered 55-plus points since 2010-11.
Doan (lower-body) will not play on Thursday; could play Friday.
Doan was on the ice for the Coyotes’ morning skate, but will miss his fifth consecutive game with a lower-body injury. According to head coach Dave Tippet, Doan is “close,” so he could be back on Friday vs. the Sabres.
Doan (lower-body) will travel on the Coyotes' five-game road trip.
Doan has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but he will travel with the Coyotes to Nashville for Tuesday’s game. It seems unlikely that Doan will play tomorrow, but he should play on the road trip.
Doan suffered an upper-body injury on Tuesday and was forced from the game. He was able to participate in the morning skate, but did not take part in line rushes and will be held out of the lineup tonight. Henrik Samuelsson has been recalled and will play in Doan’s spot.
Doan (undisclosed) will not play on Thursday; listed as day-to-day.
This doesn’t come as a big surprise considering Doan was listed as doubtful on Wednesday. He will come out of the lineup, but thankfully for the Coyotes, Martin Hanzal is healthy and will replace Doan in the lineup. Monitor his status leading up to Saturday’s game in Minnesota.
