Kyrou, Kostin score 2 apiece in 2nd as Blues top Coyotes 7-4

  Kyrou, Kostin score 2 apiece in 2nd as Blues top Coyotes 7-4 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Jordan Kyrou had two goals and two assists, and the St. Louis Blues scored five times in a 5:07 span of the second period for a 7-4 victory over Arizona in the Coyotes’ home opener Monday night. “I want to be an impact player,” Kyrou said. “Help my team win. Whatever I can do out there.” Kyrou and Klim Kostin had two goals apiece during the second-period flurry, which began when Justin Faulk scored on a power play to tie it 2-all at 11:10 after goalie Carter Hutton lost his stick during a scramble in the crease.

The Arizona Coyotes will be without their “starting” goaltender and a top young defenseman for the next several weeks, after Carter Hutton and Conor Timmins suffered injuries Monday night. According to Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports, Hutton is expected to miss between two to four weeks, while Timmins could miss eight to 12 weeks after both sustained lower-body injuries. There was no update on Ryan Dzingel, who also left Monday night’s game.

It’s not like this has any drastic effect on the Coyotes; performance, considering that Arizona is obviously set up for a losing season and hasn’t even registered a single win to this point. But the development of Timmins – who was acquired in the Darcy Kuemper trade this summer –is certainly something to consider. The former Colorado Avalanche defenseman has already missed huge chunks of time due to concussion issues and has just 88 professional games under his belt to this point (NHL and AHL combined). Now 23, he’s already missed so much of his key development years that it’s hard to know whether he’ll ever become the player who starred for the Soo Greyhounds and Team Canada, leading to a selection 32nd overall in 2017.

Ducks' Max Jones to undergo surgery on torn pec, expected to miss four to six months

  Ducks' Max Jones to undergo surgery on torn pec, expected to miss four to six months Four months would have Jones returning near the end of February, but that potential six-month timeline could keep him out basically the whole season. It’s a brutal situation for the 23-year-old former first-round pick, who has had trouble establishing himself at the NHL level but had arguably his best stretch of hockey at the end of last season. He ended the year with seven goals and 11 points in 46 games, reaching 100 hits for the first time and leaning into his role in the bottom-six.

Eight weeks would put a potential return for Timmins just before Christmas, while 12 weeks would be the middle of January.

Hutton meanwhile was ticketed to carry the lion’s share of the goaltending load this season, although that certainly hasn’t gone well to this point. In three appearances he has a .741 save percentage, allowing 15 goals on 58 shots. Karel Vejmelka, a European free-agent signing with no North American experience before this season will now likely be pushed into a full-time starter role. The 25-year-old has appeared in five games, posting an .899 save percentage.

Josef Korenar seems the most likely recall to give Arizona a second goaltender, although there are a few options in the Coyotes system.

Will Sharks send impressive rookie William Eklund back to Swedish league?

  Will Sharks send impressive rookie William Eklund back to Swedish league? With three assists in four games, Eklund is showing flashes of potential and already demonstrating the value the Sharks got with a seventh overall selection. Yet Eklund was scratched Sunday for their first loss of the season against the Boston Bruins, allowing Alexander Barabanov to draw back into the lineup. Eklund’s spent the season playing on a line with Tomas Hertl and Rudolfs Balcers, but sits as a minus-3 with none of his points coming at even strength.
