Arizona Coyotes forward Vinnie Hinostroza placed on injured reserve
The injury woes continued Saturday for the Arizona Coyotes as the team announced forward Vinnie Hinostroza was placed on the injured reserve with a lower-body injury.
Hinostroza is week-to-week, according to the Coyotes.
Starting goaltender Antti Raanta was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week with a lower-body injury. He is listed as week-to-week.
Forward Michael Grabner remains out indefinitely after taking a stick to the eye during a game last week.
The Coyotes recalled forward Michael Bunting from AHL Tucson on Friday and he could take Hinostroza’s spot during his absence.
Hinostroza is the Coyotes’ No. 4 scorer, notching 12 points (4 goals, 8 assists) in 27 games.
He played just 6:53 in the Coyotes’ 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday.
The Coyotes next play Saturday at home against the San Jose Sharks.
