Coyotes place Jaskin, Fischer on IR; Larsson in COVID-19 protocols

Nov 15, 2021, 10:05 AM

Arizona Coyotes forwards Dmitrij Jaskin and Christian Fischer have been moved to the injured reserve Monday, while Johan Larsson was placed in COVID-19 protocols.

Larsson, who has five points this year, entered the COVID-19 protocols after forward Andrew Ladd went into those restrictions on Saturday.

With those moves, the team recalled forwards Hudson Fasching, Jan Jenik and Ben McCartney from the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners.

Fischer (upper-body) has five points this season and is averaging 13:13 on ice per game.

Jaskin, who has an assist this year and is averaging 14:47 on ice, suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday in a loss to the Nashville Predators.

Replacing them is the 26-year-old Fasching, who in 10 games has 10 points to co-lead the Roadrunners in scoring.

Jenik, 21, is tied for second with seven points in 10 games with Tucson this year. The 2018 third-round selection by Arizona scored two goals in two games with the Coyotes a year ago.

The Coyotes sit last in the Central Division with a 1-13-1 record.
