Arizona Coyotes

Coyotes are “very hopeful” that Ekman-Larsson will be in the lineup for the season opener.

Ekman-Larsson missed time in training camp due to a knee injury, but was a full participant in Sunday’s practice and head coach Rick Tocchet said he’s hopeful that his star defenseman will be in the lineup on Thursday. Ekman-Larsson is coming off of the worst seasons of his career and that’s saying a lot considering he still managed to rack up 12 goals and 27 assists (39 points). O.E.L is one of the few locks for double-digit goals and 20-plus assists on the blueline.

Ekman-Larsson (knee) could resume skating as soon as Thursday.

Ekman-Larsson exited Sunday’s preseason game with a knee injury, but head coach Rick Tocchet said his star defenseman could be back on the ice tomorrow. This is huge news for the Coyotes, who could ill-afford to lose Edman-Larson with Jakob Chychrun already out for an extended period of time. O.E.L. doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing the regular season opener.

Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) is questionable for Thursday.

Ekman-Larsson left Tuesday’s game with an upper-body injury, but head coach Dave Tippett said that he doesn’t think his injury is serious and they will know more on Thursday. For his status for tomorrow’s game vs. Los Angeles monitor OEL’s status during the morning skate, but be thankful the injury doesn’t appear to be significant.

Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) will return to the Coyotes lineup on Tuesday.

Ekman-Larsson has missed the last six games with an upper-body injury, but will return tonight vs. the Oilers. Ekman-Larsson has 19 goals and 30 assists (49 points) in 66 games this season and should immediately be activated on all fantasy formats. His two goals and three assists in three games vs. Edmonton this season also suggest that he is worth the price in daily leagues as well.

Ekman-Larsson (lower-body) traveled to Washington; questionable for Monday.

Ekman-Larsson suffered a lower-body injury in his first shift on Saturday, but could be in the lineup tonight in Washington. Ekman-Larsson has been excellent since the All-Star break, scoring three goals with eight assists (11 points) in nine games. Monitor OEL’s status during the Coyotes morning skate.

Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) will return to the lineup tonight.

Ekman-Larsson has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Thursday. OEL has been one of the better defensemen in fantasy this season, he has 22 points (4G / 18A) in 40 games and should be activated in all formats. Expect him to be paired with Derek Morris tonight and jump back onto the top power-play unit alongside Keith Yandle.
