Two Players Out For The Arizona Coyotes

In Monday night's contest against the Florida Panthers, two players from the Arizona Coyotes would leave injured. Now, we have an idea of how long each of them will be out. Defenseman Conor Timmins could miss up to 12 weeks with a lower-body injury. Goaltender Carter Hutton is is expected to be out two-to-four weeks with a lower-body injury as well.

Timmins was injured after taking a hard hit along the boards from Panthers defenseman Radko Gudas. He stayed down on the ice and it seemed rather clear that his injury was serious. Timmons was traded to the Coyotes from the Colorado Avalanche in the Darcy Kuemper deal. This is a tough blow for the 23-year-old defenseman, as he was looking to cement himself as a true NHLer this season. In six games so far this season, he has zero points. He had seven assists in 31 games with Colorado last season. 

With Hutton out for the next few weeks, the Coyotes will have to run with rookie gookie goaltender Karel Vejmelka as their starter. Hutton's start with the Coyotes hasn't been very good, as he has a 0-2-2 record, 7.76 GAA and .741 SV%. Once he returns, he will be looking to rebound and fast. In 13 games last season with the Buffalo Sabres, he had a 1-10-1 record and .886 SV%.
