Arizona Coyotes leading scorer Conor Garland has been listed as week to week with a lower-body injury as the team’s playoff hopes take a significant hit.

The 23-year-old right-wing sustained the injury in the loss against Calgary on Friday night when he collided with Flames goalie Cam Talbot.

He left the team and returned to Arizona, the Coyotes said on Sunday. Arizona will complete a three-game road trip on Monday against the Winnipeg Jets at 5 p.m.

Garland has 22 goals and 39 points in 68 games so far this season, his second in the league.

The Coyotes find themselves two points behind the final Western Conference playoff spot with 13 games remaining as they try to make the big dance for the first time since 2012.

Arizona is no stranger to lower-body injuries this season.

All-Star goaltender Darcy Kuemper missed two months with a lower-body injury and just returned on Feb. 25.
