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.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
