Coyotes’ Domi sidelined with upper body injury following fight with Hathaway

Domi did not play another shift following his fight during the second period of Thursday night's overtime loss to the Calgary Flames.

The Arizona Coyotes have placed Max Domi on injured reserve with an upper body injury, according to Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic. The forward is listed as week-to-week.

Domi fought Flames forward Garnet Hathway in the final minute of the second period of Arizona’s 2-1 overtime loss to Calgary on Thursday night. He did not play another shift in the game.

It was the sixth career regular season fight for the 21-year-old, per HockeyFights.com.

Domi has five goals and ranks second amongst Coyotes with 16 points while averaging 17:16 a night in ice time in 26 games this season.

Update: According to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, Domi will have surgery for a suspected hand injury and could miss up to six weeks. 

With Domi on IR, the Coyotes recalled center Laurent Dauphin and defenseman Anthony DeAngelo from the American Hockey League’s Tucson Roadrunners. According to McLellan, the Coyotes were able to make two recalls as Peter Holland, who was acquired in a trade with the Maple Leafs on Friday, continues to sort out his visa issues.

Dauphin and DeAngelo are expected to be in the Coyotes lineup on Saturday night when Arizona plays host to the Nashville Predators.
