Coyotes' Korpikoski Won't Return This Season

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) will not return to the lineup for Saturday's season finale against the Ducks, Craig Morgan of FOX Sports Arizona reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski will only have missed 13 games on the season, but he's dealt with a number of injuries of every turn that have made him less reliable for fantasy owners. Of course, those who might have rostered Korpikoski probably only did so out of desperation, as the six goals, 21 points, and minus-27 rating he supplied didn't exactly make him a trendy waiver-wire pickup.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Still Out Tuesday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) didn't participate in the Coyotes' morning skate and looks to be unavailable Tuesday against the Flames, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski resumed skating late last week, but it doesn't look like he's reached the point where he's able to practice with the team just yet. He's been out of commission since March 24 with the injury.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Won't Play This Weekend

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) has been ruled out for the Coyotes' back-to-back weekend games against the Sharks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Though Lauri Korpikoski was able to skate on his own Thursday morning, he has yet to resume practicing with the team. That could happen Friday morning in San Jose, as he's set to travel with the team for the game.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Sidelined

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) remains sidelined, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski could practice later this week and hasn't been ruled out for the coming weekend, but he's not a candidate to play Monday against the Sabres.

Lauri Korpikoski

Coyotes' Korpikoski (Mouth) Out Saturday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) won't play Saturday against the Penguins, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski skipped Friday's practice due to the persistence of a swollen mouth as the result of a high stick to the face Tuesday. While he remains day-to-day with the issue, Saturday won't be his return date. Tye McGinn will likely continue to dress in his place.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Won't Play Thursday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (mouth) will not play Thursday against the Sabres, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski is still dealing with a bit of sensitivity in his mouth after he took a high stick to the area in Tuesday's win over the Red Wings. The Coyotes are labeling the forward as day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming Saturday against the Penguins.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Absorbs High Stick

News: Lauri Korpikoski -- who absorbed a high-stick to the mouth area on Tuesday -- will be re-evaluated as Thursday's game against the Sabres approaches, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Per the report, the high stick left Lauri Korpikoski with two-to-three cuts in his mouth area, with a better read on the forward's status for Thursday's contest likely to arrive during the Coyotes' pre-game skate. Korpikoski recorded an assist Tuesday to up his point total for the season to 21 in 69 games, to go along with a minus-27 rating.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Suffers Injury In Win

News: Lauri Korpikoski left Tuesday's overtime win over the Red Wings in the third period after getting cut by a high stick, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. The winger contributed a power-play assist, two PIM, and four shots on goal in his 9:12 of ice time.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski remained in the locker room after sustaining the cut, but his injury isn't believed to be a major concern. He appears on track to play Thursday in Buffalo, though his availability may not be verified until the Coyotes conduct their game-day skate.

Coyotes' Korpikoski To Play Thursday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (upper body) will play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski checked out fine after practicing Wednesday, so coach Dave Tippett will sign off on the forward's return to the lineup after a one-game absence. He's expected to skate on the Coyotes' third line.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Resumes Practicing

News: Lauri Korpikoski (upper body) participated in Wednesday's practice, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski slotted in on the Coyotes' third line during the session, which bodes well for his availability for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks. Coach Dave Tippett should provide official word on Korpikoski's status after the Coyotes complete their morning skate.

Lauri Korpikoski

Coyotes' Korpikoski Could Practice Wednesday

News: Coach Dave Tippett said that Lauri Korpikoski (upper body) could resume practicing Wednesday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: After sitting out Monday's loss to the Predators with the injury, Lauri Korpikoski was able to get back on the ice for a light skate Tuesday afternoon. He should be viewed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks at this time.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Out Monday

News: Lauri Korpikoski will miss Monday's game against the Predators with an upper-body injury, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: It's a bit unclear where Lauri Korpikoski's injury occurred, but it is considered minor and shouldn't be anything long-term. While he won't play Monday, it's quite possible he will be available for the team's next contest Thursday.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski had an assist and five hits Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the Lightning. He took one shot on net and blocked one shot in the game.
Analysis: This was Lauri Korpikoski's first point in eight games and brings him to 19 points on the season. The veteran Finn is suffering through a tough season offensively and defensively with a minus-21 rating, but this is as much an indication of what life is like on the Coyotes this year as any change in skill for Korpikoski. Use him as you normally would.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Keeps Streaking With Assist

News: Lauri Korpikoski picked up an assist on the power play Tuesday in a win over Columbus. He added three hits in the game.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski is hot of late with points in four straight games bringing him up to 18 points on the season. The 28 year-old could draw some interest as the trade deadline approaches for his solid checking skills.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Nets Two In Win

News: Lauri Korpikoski potted two goals in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski was forced to miss practice on Friday with an unspecified injury, but he appears to be back at full strength from whatever was ailing him as he bagged a pair of power play goals. The 28-year-old has been heating up of late, as he's now recording a point in three straight contests.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Due To Play Saturday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's match against the Senators, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, Lauri Korpikoski took the ice for pregame warmups and will be ready to play after a minor issue kept him unavailable for Friday's practice. He's expected to slot in on the Coyotes' second line against the Senators.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Nursing Minor Injury

News: Lauri Korpikoski missed Friday's practice with an unspecified injury, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Coach Dave Tippett referred to Lauri Korpikoski's ailment as a "minor issue," and anticipates that the forward will be available for Saturday's game in Ottawa. Korpikoski, who recorded an assist and two hits in Thursday's win over the Leafs, should have his status for Saturday's game validated following the Coyotes' morning skate.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski potted a goal and registered four shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski entered Sunday's game with six straight contests off of the scoresheet, and the goal was his first since Dec. 13. He's up to 13 points on the season, but there isn't much value here from a fantasy perspective.

Coyotes Activate Korpikoski

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Saturday against the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski skated on the Coyotes' fourth line at the team's morning skate, joining Brandon McMillan and Joe Vitale. He had missed the team's last five games due to the injury.

Coyotes' Korpikoski To Remain Out Tuesday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) will remain out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Oilers, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Repbulic reports.
Analysis: Coach Dave Tippett acknowledged Monday that Lauri Korpikoski would have a chance to play in the Coyotes' final game before Christmas break, but those hopes will be tabled after he didn't look to be quite at 100 percent health while skating Tuesday morning. Tippett said Korpikoski's injury is one that could be easily aggravated, so the Coyotes will give him a few extra days to recover just to be on the safe side.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Out Monday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) will not play in Monday's game against the Canucks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Coyotes Place Korpikoski On IR

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) was transferred to injured reserve Monday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: With the Coyotes ruling Lauri Korpikoski out of action Monday's game against the Canucks, he'll be moved to IR in order to free up a roster spot for Brandon Gormley, who was recalled to provide further depth on defense. Since Korpikoski's placement on IR is retroactive to Dec. 13, if healthy, he would technically be eligible to return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Oilers.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Doubtful For Saturday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) is doubtful to play Saturday against the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Does Not Practice Wednesday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) didn't practice Wednesday and remains day-to-day, according to Sarah McLellan of AZCentral.com.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Out Tuesday

News: Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) wasn't on the ice for pregame warmups and looks to be out Tuesday against the Oilers, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Considered questionable heading into Tuesday, Lauri Korpikoski didn't make enough progress with his injury to represent a viable lineup option for coach Mike Yeo. After spending the Coyotes' previous game as a healthy scratch, Sam Gagner will reenter the lineup in place of Korpikoski.
