Arizona Coyotes center Tobias Rieder is expected to be ready for the start of next season following surgery for an ankle injury he sustained playing for Germany at the 2017 IIHF World Hockey Championship this month.

The Coyotes said his recovery time will be 8-12 weeks.

Rieder, 24, was injured when he crashed into the boards in a 6-3 loss to Russia on May 8. He had one goal in three games.

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.
