Not the news the Arizona Coyotes -- or potential trade partners -- will be too excited about.

Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun left Arizona's game on Saturday against Boston after suffering a lower-body injury, the team has confirmed.

A second-period hit from Boston's Derek Forbort was what took Chychrun out of the remainder of the game. No timeline for a return has been made clear yet.

The 23-year-old Chychrun had been playing well as of late with 10 points in his last seven games. Chychrun is considered to be one of the top trade targets for the upcoming trade deadline, so teams will certainly be monitoring his development over the next few days.
