Coyotes Put Korpikoski On IR

Korpikoski_2013The Phoenix Coyotes put forward Lauri Korpikoski on injured reserve Friday, calling up Tim Kennedy from AHL Portland in his place.

Korpikoski, 27, missed Thursday night’s 7-4 loss to Los Angeles with an upper-body injury. The Finnish forward — who signed a four-year, $10 million extension in July — is an important role player for the ‘Yotes, having notched two points in 10 games this year while averaging over 15 minutes per game.

It remains to be seen how much time Korpikoski will miss.
