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.

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.

Lauri Korpikoski

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.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski is still not healthy, so he will miss his third straight game Tuesday night. Consider him questionable for Arizona's next game Tuesday.

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.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski will travel with the team, but he's unlikely to play after failing to practice Friday. He hasn't been on the ice since playing last weekend against the Wild.

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.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Questionable For Tuesday

News: Lauri Korpikoski is dealing with a lower-body injury, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: There's no word on when Lauri Korpikoski got hurt, but he should be considered questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Oilers. The winger has three goals and seven assists through 30 games so far this season.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored his third goal of the season Saturday in a loss to the Wild. He was plus-1 with two shots, hits, and blocks in the contest.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski scores infrequently these days, but does make contributions across the board for Arizona. He could find himself on the move to a contender down the stretch if the Coyotes decide to rebuild as his defensive skill could make him a useful piece.

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) will suit up Tuesday against Dallas, reports Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski took a puck of his foot in last week and did not practice Tuesday morning, but it seems the Coyotes dismissed the injury as a minor concern. The forward has three points over 14 games for the Coyotes.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Practices

News: Lauri Korpikoski (foot) participated in Wednesday's practice, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: A puck to the foot knocked Lauri Korpikoski out of action Tuesday against the Lightning, but it sounds like he only sustained some moderate soreness. He took part in line work Wednesday with Sam Gagner and Justin Hodgman and looks in the clear to play Thursday in Florida.

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.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Nets First In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski scored the Coyotes' lone goal in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski has been only a modest offensive producer in the past, and it appears that trend is continuing again in 2014-15. The third-liner has attempted just five shots in four games, compiling a minus-3 rating during that span.
