Coyotes’ Hanzal Returns To Lineup

Posted By Michelle Speaker On March 4, 2013 @ 10:40 PM In NHL | No Comments

After missing five games with an upper-body injury, big Phoenix Coyotes center Martin Hanzal returned to the lineup against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday, the OC Register’s Eric Stephens reports.

The 26-year-old forward is generally known more for his strong defensive work, although he’s been off to hot offensive start. Thanks in part to a 25.9 percent shooting efficiency, Hanzal has seven goals and 10 points overall in 12 contests.

The Coyotes went 2-2-1 in his absence.

Phoenix must be especially delighted to welcome the two-way pivot back into the fold because the team is in the middle of an odd three-game run of matches versus division rival Anaheim. The ‘Yotes managed to win the first contest 5-4 via a shootout on Saturday.
