GLENDALE -- Coyotes forward Tobias Rieder is expected to be ready for the start of next season following surgery for an ankle injury he sustained playing for Team Germany at the 2017 IIHF World Hockey Championship earlier this month.
Rieder's recovery time is expected to be 8-12 weeks.
Rieder, 24, was injured when he crashed into the boards during a 6-3 loss to Team Russia on May 8. He notched one goal in three games before the injury.
He had 34 points (16 goals, 18 assists) in 80 games with the Coyotes this season. The 16 goals were an NHL career high for Rieder and tied for second on Arizona with center Martin Hanzal, who played 51 games with the Coyotes before being traded to the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 26, behind forward Radim Vrbata's 20.
