Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson was ruled out for the rest of Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings due to a lower-body injury.

In the second period, Ekman-Larsson got in a knee-to-knee collision with Kings forward Dustin Brown.

Ekman-Larsson was seen skating gingerly to the locker room and it was later announced he would not return to the game.

The Coyotes’ franchise defenseman for the better part of last decade has not missed a game yet this season and missed only three combined in the last two seasons.

This year, Ekman-Larsson has six goals and 16 assists for a total of 22 points.
