The Phoenix Coyotes have lost defenseman Zbynek Michalek indefinitely with a lower-body injury he sustained in the game Tuesday against the Montreal Canadiens.

According to the Coyotes, Michalek has left the team to see team medical staff for further evaluation.

In 24 games Michalek has four assists and a plus-10 rating that is tops among Phoenix defensemen. He missed nine games earlier this season with a lower-body injury.
