NHL.com @NHL
Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan suffered an upper-body injury after tripping over Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard and crashing into the boards in the second period of Game 3 Sunday at Joe Louis Arena.

It was reported late in the second period that Doan was not likely to return to the game.

Doan, 33, is the longest-tenured player on the team, playing his rookie season in 1995-96 for the Winnipeg Jets, who then moved to Phoenix the following summer.

Also a member of the last Coyotes team to make the postseason in 2002, Doan celebrated their return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a goal and an assist in Game 2 at Jobing.com Arena.

He played all 82 regular-season games, recording 18 goals and 55 points.
