Coyotes' Michalek Scores First Goal Of Season

News: Zbynek Michalek scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek now has six points in 35 games, to go with a minus-5 rating. Considering it's been five years since the 32-year-old surpassed the 20-point mark, don't expect much more offense from Michalek this season. Considering he sees almost no power-play time, Michalek doesn't provide much fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.

Coyotes' Michalek Picks Up Assist

News: Zbynek Michalek registered an assist Friday in a 5-0 win over the Canucks. He was plus-2 and blocked three shots in the contest.
Analysis: That is two consecutive games with an assist for Zbynek Michalek, but don't count on it continuing as he has never been a scoring defenseman. On the other hand, his 37 blocked shots on the season have him in a tie for 14th in the NHL, where he adds tremendous value in leagues that count blocks.

Coyotes' Michalek Picks Up Assist

News: Zbynek Michalek picked up an assist Thursday in a 5-3 loss to the Flames. He added two shots, a hit, and four blocked shots.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek's contributions for fantasy purposes are limited to leagues that count blocked shots, at which he is one of the best. With three points in 16 games, he is scoring at a higher rate than usual, but he will nevertheless not be a real factor on offense.

Coyotes' Michalek Out Saturday

News: Zbynek Michalek is out for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Coyotes' Michalek Tallies Rare Goal

News: Zbynek Michalek tallied his second goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek typically eschews offensive involvement most nights, but he was surprisingly active Tuesday, attempting three shots. He very narrowly missed out on a second goal in the third period, but his shot attempt narrowly sailed over the net.

News: Zbynek Michalek, who did not take part in the Coyotes' pre-game skate, did play Saturday against Calgary skating 17:34. He was plus-1 and blocked two shots.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek is nursing some kind of injury after blocking a shot against Boston on Thursday, but was good enough to go Saturday. He should be okay for the Coyotes' upcoming game Monday against the Kings.

News: Zbynek Michalek's goal Saturday gives him a point in each of his last two games.

Coyotes' Michalek Returns To Lineup

News: Zbynek Michalek made his return to the Coyotes' blue line Thursday playing 16:02 in a win over Vancouver.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek spent a large part of night (6:06) working on the penalty kill, which is perhaps a way of easing him back into regular duties, but the main take away is that he is back if you need him.

Coyotes' Michalek Back From IR

News: Zbynek Michalek (lower body) will return from IR to play Thursday vs. the Canucks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: The Coyotes were able to clear a spot for his return to the lineup by placing Ratislav Klesla on waivers. Zbynek Michalek will provide the Coyotes with one of their more defensive-minded blueliners, surely a welcome development for the struggling Mike Smith.

Coyotes' Michalek Makes Trip To Winnipeg

News: Zbynek Michalek (lower body) traveled with the team for their game in Winnipeg on Monday and was on the ice for morning skate, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: There would seem to be a good chance Zbynek Michalek gets back in the lineup Monday if the Coyotes determined after morning skate that he was sufficiently healthy. Michalek has experienced a multitude of injuries this season, but he's been one of the team's most active defenders when healthy, recording 22 hits and 72 blocks in 24 games.

Coyotes' Michalek: Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Zbynek Michalek (lower body) is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest against the Avalanche, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Zbynek Michalek said he felt good following morning skate, but coach Dave Tippett wants to be careful in easing the defenseman back into action after he practiced fully for the first time Monday. Tippett may have no choice but to activate Michalek with three regulars set to miss Tuesday's game.
