The Arizona Coyotes placed captain Shane Doan on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to Nov. 21.

Doan, 39, will miss his seventh straight game Sunday when the Coyotes play the Carolina Hurricanes because of a lower-body injury. He has six goals and 10 points in 20 games this season.

Doan is eligible to come off IR when healthy.

"We'll see where he is at practice [Monday]," coach Dave Tippett told the Coyotes website. "He's taken the last couple of days off to get treatment and workouts. We'll see if it's better [Monday]."

The Coyotes claimed forward Viktor Tikhonov off waivers from the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
