Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores Rare Goal

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored his second goal of the year -- and first in more than a month -- on a power play Thursday, accounting for all of Arizona's offense in a 3-1 loss to the Stars.
Analysis: His last goal came on Oct. 18, and Lauri Korpikoski doesn't chip in too many assists either, so his fantasy value is quite limited.

News: Lauri Korpikoski picked up an assist Tuesday in a loss to the Stars. He was plus-1, took one shot, and blocked two shots.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski played after taking a puck off the foot in a game against the Lightning last Tuesday. The assist brings him to four points on the season. He should get above the 20 point barrier, but not much higher.

News: Lauri Korpikoski (foot) participated in Wednesday's practice, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Grabs Assist

News: Lauri Korpikoski picked up an assist Saturday in a win over the Panthers. He added four shots and three hits. It was his second point of the season.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski is more of a checker at this point in his career so expectations for his offensive output aren't that high. He will add value in deep leagues and those that count hits.

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored Phoenix's lone goal in Thursday's loss to Boston, giving him a point in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski has two goals in the last five games and nine on the season. Look for him to chip in occasionally offensively, but not to the point where owners can rely on offensive production from him.

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored Thursday in a win over Montreal. It was his first goal since returning from the Olympics where he played with team Finland.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski has missed some time this year, but has played well when he has been in the lineup. Before the Olympic break he was on a roll with Antoine Vermette and they will try to recapture that chemistry soon.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores Two Goals

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored two goals in Friday's win for Finland over Norway.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski only needed three shot attempts to net a pair of goals in the rout of Norway. He was a hot scorer coming into the Olympics, so the Finns will hope his scoring continues in a big game with Canada on Sunday.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski picked up an assist Wednesday in a loss to Calgary.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski has points in back-to-back games. He is doing quite a bit of damage with Antoine Vermette killing penalties right now, which is not likely to be sustainable, but he is playing consistently more than 15 minutes per game so he will get his chances even strength too.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored his seventh goal of the year (and his third in his last four games) Saturday in a loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski needed a few games to get after returning from an upper body injury in mid-December, but he is now really clicking along well. He is not as big an offensive threat as his recent hot streak might suggest, but he is a solid depth guy who will score in double digits this year if his health holds up.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski notched his fifth goal of the season Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Flyers. It was his first goal since returning from IR on December 21.
Analysis: After Lauri Korpikoski recorded 19 and 17 goal seasons in 2010-11 and 2011-12 it looked like he was becoming one of the league's better two-way players, but he dropped off to six goals last year. With five goals in 25 games this year he would be on pace to get back to the mid-teens range, but for his time missed with an upper body injury. He is playing a physical game this year demonstrated by his 63 hits.
