COYOTES RECEIVE BAD NEWS ABOUT TOP WINGER CONOR GARLAND

APR 22, 2021  (14H53)      COOPER GODIN
The Arizona Coyotes announced on Thursday that forward Conor Garland will be out week-to-week with a lower-body injury. Garland suffered the injury during Tuesday's practice, and was left out of the lineup as Arizona took on Minnesota last night.

"It's a huge loss," said Coyotes head coach Rick Tocchet. "He's an emotional guy. Tenacity on the ice, emotional on the bench," Tocchet said when asked what the team will miss without Garland. "He's always around the net. He's a pest around the net. It's hard to find those guys that are pests. He's one of our better players."

Garland was enjoying a strong season with Arizona, currently sitting tied for second on the team in points (38), and tied for third in goals (10). He is currently 7 points away from tying his career high of 39 he set during the 2019-20 season.

The 25-year-old is in the final year of a two-year deal, and will become an RFA at the end of the season.

Arizona is holding on to the final playoff spot in the Honda West division and have a record of 20-22-7 through 47 games, but are in a tough battle to keep their position in the standings. The St. Louis Blues are in fifth place in the division, and are only one point behind Arizona with four games in hand.

If the Coyotes are going to make the playoffs, they're going to need plenty of help from depth players to replace Garland's production during his absence.
