The Phoenix Coyotes will have to make do without injured captain Shane Doan for an unspecified period of time.
The right-winger suffered a lower-body injury in a collision with Dallas defenceman Nicklas Grossman during a 6-3 loss to the Stars on Friday.
"It's part of hockey and it's something I have to deal with and I will be ready to go when I come back," Doan says on the team's official website.
"I hope to be back sooner than later…. We're getting on it in a hurry here and we'll get it going, and I'll be back quickly."
Doan is considered week-to-week, and he will not travel with the team to Detroit and Chicago for games this week.
Doan sat out three games earlier this season, serving a suspension for a hit on Anaheim Ducks forward Dan Sexton.
