Arizona Coyotes goalie Carter Hutton will miss between two and four weeks after suffering a lower-body injury Monday, while defenseman Conor Timmins will be sidelined from eight to 12 weeks, reports Arizona Sports’ John Gambadoro.

Hutton has appeared in three games amid Arizona’s 0-5-1 start to the 2021-22 season.

The 35-year-old has allowed 15 goals in 116 minutes of time on ice with 43 saves for a .741 save percentage and 7.76 goals against average. Hutton started the season opener, an 8-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, then gave up six goals in the third game of the year against the St. Louis Blues.

The Coyotes have used 25-year-old Karel Vejmelka in five games around Hutton’s struggles and injury.

Velmelka has saved .899 of shots against him, allowing 13 goals over 247 minutes of time in the net.

Vejmelka has a 3.15 goals against average and will presumably assume regular goaltending duties with Hutton out.

The Coyotes also have 22-year-old Ivan Prosvetov and 23-year-old Josef Korenar as call-up options. They are currently on the roster of the Tucson Roadrunners, Arizona’s AHL club.

The 23-year-old Timmins, a 2017 second-round pick by Colorado, has averaged 17:44 minutes per game.
