GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes lost their leading scorer, center Martin Hanzal, to a lower-body injury in the first period of their game against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.

Hanzal, who leads Phoenix with 19 points, got tangled up in front of the Anaheim net with Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri and limped toward the Phoenix bench.

The Coyotes announced that Hanzal will not return.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
