Doan is still "under the weather," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "He's still not going to be available for the foreseeable future."
This is a tough break for the Coyotes captain who was having a great season prior to getting il. Doan had registered 12 goals and 11 assists (23 points) in 27 games. Doan is expected to get further tests because an illness lingering around as long as this one has could be serious.
Doan (illness) will not make the trip to Colorado for Tuesday's game.
Doan did not play on Friday and will sit out at least one more game as he continues to battle an illness. The 37-year-old is having a tremendous start to the season, posting 12 goals and 23 points in 27 games. He could be available back in Phoenix on Thursday vs. the Islanders.
Doan is listed as day-to-day but has a couple of days to recover before the Coyotes next game. Phoenix is off until Tuesday when they take on the Avalanche, monitor Doan's status prior to that contest.
Doan left Monday's game after playing just 9:43 and did not return. He skated on Tuesday and was present during the Coyotes optional this morning. Head coach Dave Tippet said he is probable, which means he will play barring any setbacks between now and puck-drop. Doan has been on an absolute tear posting 10 goals and six assists in his last 15 games. His 11 goals have him tied for 16th.
Doan (lower-body) did not practice today after leaving Monday's game.
It would be devastating for the Coyotes if Doan can't paly on Wednesday because he has been on a tear as of late. Doan has nine goals and six assists (15 points) in his last 13 games. His absence from practice this morning is worrisome, but monitor his status and expect an update following Wednesday's game-day skate.
Based on line rushes, looks like Doan is in. Skating with Vernmette and Klinkhammer. We'll see what he says after the skate.
Doan missed Tuesday with lower-body injury, but should be back in the lineup tonight. The longtime Coyote still skates in the top-6 but is not the player he used to be. He has just one goal and two assists in nine games.
Doan (lower-body) is questionable for tonight's game.
Doan wasn't reported to be dealing with any sort of injury following Saturday's win over the Red Wings. He skated this morning but was was the first one to leave the ice, suggesting something could have happened in the morning skate.
Doan will return to the ice Thursday with his teammates when they host the current top dog in the Pacific Division, the San Jose Sharks, but he'll be faced with a new challenge -- how to remain a physical player and not get penalized for it.
Doan returns to the lineup Thursday night. The Coyotes captain scored 21 goals and 47 points in 74 games.
"Knowing Shane and the type of body he has, there is no question in my mind he can play at a high level for another three, four, five years," he said.
In Dave Tippett's system, Doan's offensive production has been a bit scaled back -- dropping from 73 and 78 points under Gretzky to 60 and 55 points. Regardless, the Halkirk, Alberta native certainly feels comfortable in Phoenix and should be good for 55+ points, 60 PIM and a bonus if your league matriculates hits.
