GLENDALE -- Coyotes forward Tobias Rieder suffered a lower-body injury while playing for Germany at the IIHF World Championship in Russia last week and will miss the rest of the tournament.

The injury is not considered serious and it will not require surgery, however Rieder will be sidelined for about a month.

"Tobi has a long summer to recover and get his training in," Coyotes General Manager John Chayka said. "We expect him to be ready to go at training camp in September at 100 percent."

Rieder notched a goal and an assist in four games for Germany before the injury, which he suffered during the second period of the game played on May 12 vs. Canada. He and Canadian forward Corey Perry collided near center ice.

Rieder was one of only two Coyotes to play in all 82 games this season. He notched 14 goals and 23 assists to finish eighth on the team with 37 points.
