Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan will not play in Saturday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks because of the effects of the carbon monoxide poisoning.
Doan has been battling symptoms for several days.
Doi has been a regular on the ice for the Coyotes since being traded from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Dec. 2, 2014.
The Coyotes announced Friday that Doan would miss the game.
Dois injury was first reported by the Arizona Republic.
Coyotes general manager Don Maloney confirmed that the team would not play on Saturday and Doi would be sidelined for an extended period of time.
Doin said he was not aware of the injury until it was reported by media outlets.
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said in a tweet Friday night that Doi will be back on the bench on Saturday against the Canucks.
Do the Coyotes have to play tonight?
They’re still getting better every game.
They’ve got a lot of guys coming back.
Maloney said he did not expect Doi to play and he said he is OK.
Do it now, Doi said.
It’s a good sign.
Do I think it’s time to start looking at some different ways to help the team in the future?
Do you think the Coyotes should have done something before the season?
Is this the best time to do it?
I’m not saying it is, but it’s the right time to think about it.
Do do it now and I’m sure we’ll see you again.
Coyotes head coach Dave Benning will coach the team against the New York Rangers.
