Phoenix Coyote Scottie Upshall out with torn ACL

He is the team’s leading scorer. From AP-

Phoenix Coyotes forward Scottie Upshall is out indefinitely with a torn ACL in his right knee.


Upshall was injured in Thursday’s 3-2 win over Calgary and missed Saturday night’s 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers. The club said surgery will be necessary to repair the tear.

The 26-year-old right wing has a team-leading 18 goals in 49 games this season.

Upshall is most certainly out for the rest of the season. How will this impact Phoenix’s playoff chances? The Coyotes are 4th in the Western Conference at this point and 7 points ahead of the 9th place team. I have been negative about this team’s playoff chances all year but they’ve kept plugging away. Maybe other players will pick up the slack.
