In his first game back since his baby girl was born, Martin Hanzal produced nice fantasy stats, although they weren't enough as the Arizona Coyotes fell 4-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
Hanzal scored one goal, sat in the penalty box twice for four PIM, fired two SOG and delivered two hits in a busy 17 minutes of ice time. This broke a five-game pointless drought and represented his first goal since his Nov. 14 hat trick. Dec 20 - 7:49 PM
