Arizona Coyotes goaltender Antti Raanta left Friday night’s 3-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes and did not return.

The team announced that Raanta sustained a lower-body injury.

After the second [period], he said he didn’t feel good, so we put [Adin] Hill in,” head coach Rick Tocchet told Fox Sports Arizona postgame.

Raanta, 30, came out after the end of the second period with the Coyotes trailing the Canes, 3-0.

The goaltender saved 25 of 28 shots on the night (.893 save percentage) before Adin Hill took over between the pipes.

Raanta was making his first appearance since sustaining a lower-body injury that caused him to exit Arizona’s 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 4.

The 30-year-old came into Friday night with a .921 save percentage and a 9-8-2 record on the 2019-20 campaign.

Coyotes’ goaltenders continue to get bit by the injury bug, as starting G Darcy Kuemper remains sidelined with a lower-body injury as well.

“We’re hitting a little adversity with the goaltending,” Tocchet said.

“That doesn’t mean we’re going to rush [Darcy] Kuemper back and Raanta has to get healthy, so Hill is going to have to come in there and we’ll get [Ivan Prosvetov] back up if we need him and we’ll go from there.”
