Demers will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Archibald has been suspended two games for his illegal check to the head of Ryan Hartman.
Kuemper will start Saturday vs. the Bruins.
Kuemper stopped 45 of 46 shots in the Coyotes 2-1 win over the Predators on Thursday. It was a much different performance than the one we saw in Detroit, when he was pulled. Kuemper has lost four of his last six starts (2-3-1) while posting a 3.52 GAA and .899 SV%. He is too inconsistent to trust every night, but tonight he gets a Bruins team on a back-to-back.
The Coyotes have recalled Robbie Russo from Tucson (AHL).
Russo, 25, has registered eight assists in 13 games with Tucson this season. The former fourth-round pick has been called up because the Coyotes blueline is without Jakob Chychrun, Alex Goligoski and Jason Demers, who was injured last night. Russo has no points in 19 career NHL games (all with the Red Wings).
Demers left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury; will be re-evaluated on Friday.
Demers was forced to leave Thursday’s game late in the third period after suffering an apparent right leg injury. Demers was unable to put weight on his leg as he was being helped off of the ice, suggesting that he could miss an extended period of time.
The Coyotes have recalled Dakota Mermis from Tucson (AHL).
Mermis has yet to appear in a game with the Coyotes this season but has been recalled because Jakob Chychrun is out again. Mermis has five points (1G / 4A) in nine games with Tucson.
Chychrun (upper-body) will not play on Thursday.
Chychrun made his season debut on Tuesday but is already out of the lineup with a new injury. Chychrun is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, making him questionable for Saturday’s game vs. the Bruins as well.
Kuemper will start Thursday vs. the Predators.
Kuemper was yanked after allowing five goals on 17 shots in the Coyotes loss in Detroit on Tuesday. Kuemper has had a really tough time in his last five games, allowing a combined 19 goals on 152 shots (.875 SV%). With Kuemper’s struggles and the Predators in town, he’s best left on the bench tonight.
Kuemper is in the starter's crease at the Coyotes morning skate.
Chychrun (knee) will make his season debut in Detroit.
Chychrun missed the first 16 games of the season, but will play Tuesday in Detroit. The 20-year-old defenseman had a solid rookie season, picking up 14 points (4G / 10A) in 50 games.
Goligoski (lower-body) won’t play Tuesday vs. the Red Wings.
Goligoski will miss his third straight game with a lower-body injury that he suffered in Philadelphia last Thursday. Goligoski remains day-to-day and questionable to return Thursday vs. the Predators.

Kuemper played great in his third start in four nights and is now 2-2-1 with a 2.60 GAA and .922 SV% in five starts on the road this season. Tonight he faces a Red Wings team that was slow out of the gates, but have won six of their last seven games.

Lyubushkin is expected to draw into the Coyotes lineup on Saturday.
Lyubushkin is expected to play in Pittsburgh because Alex Goligoski is out with a lower-body injury. The 24-year-old defenseman has averaged just 12:10 TOI/gm in five games with the Coyotes this season. Lyubushkin has posted an ugly 47.3 CorsiFor%, -8.5 CF% rel with Arizona this season, so this is a big downgrade from the veteran Goligoski.

Goligoski (lower-body) will not play on Saturday.
Goligoski was a game-time decision for Thursday’s game in Philadelphia and only lasted 1:21 TOI before league the game with a lower-body ailment. The veteran blueliner has been ruled out for Saturday’s game in Pittsburgh, which means that Ilya Lyubushkin will likely play.
