The Arizona Coyotes have been dealt some potentially awful news.

The team has announced that their starting goalie Antti Raanta will be out for an indefinite period of time with an undisclosed lower body injury. There’s chatter surrounding the team that he could be sidelined for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.

Raanta, who was initially acquired in a trade with the New York Rangers in June 2017, hasn’t played since being removed from his last start in a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Wild on November 27.

In 12 games this season, he has posted a 5-6-0 record, .906 save percentage and 2.88 goals-against average.

The Coyotes are losers of two straight and currently sit seventh in the Pacific Division with a 13-13-2 record.
