Arizona Coyotes forward Lawson Crouse is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a broken hand.

The Coyotes said Crouse would be sidelined for four weeks after he blocked a shot during Monday’s 6-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Arizona (21-42-5, 47 points), which has been eliminated from postseason contention, concludes its season against the Nashville Predators on April 29.

Crouse, 24, has recorded career-high totals in goals (20) and points (34) in 65 games this season. His 14 assists are tied for a career high, set when he played 81 games during the 2018-19 campaign.

Crouse has recorded 110 points (56 goals, 54 assists) in 346 career games with the Coyotes, who acquired him in a trade from the Florida Panthers on Aug. 25, 2016.

The Ontario native was selected by the Panthers with the 11th overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.
