Martin Hanzal (lower body) will be a game time decision Saturday.

The Coyotes are in San Jose to take on the Sharks and Hanzal will participate in the morning skate and a decision as to whether or not he returns to action will be made after that. He has five goals and 11 points in 15 games thus far but has missed the last two games with the injury.

Martin Hanzal had a night for the scrapbook.

Hanzal recorded his second career hat trick on three consecutive shots. His second goal though stirred some controversy as it appeared that his stick may have been over the crossbar during the deflection. However the Situation Room determined that the evidence was "inconclusive" and therefore did not overrule the refs. The Coyotes would go on to win 5-0.

Martin Hanzal is spending more time this season scouting his opposition centers so that he's prepared to face them on the draw.

It's paid off so far as Hanzal ranks third in the league with a 60.6 faceoff winning percentage. That's a big step up from his 54.5% in 2013-14 and his career average of 50.3%. "Marty's really worked hard at that the last couple years," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "He's really dug into that. That's an area we put a lot of onus on."

Martin Hanzal recorded an assist in Arizona's 3-2 shootout victory against Anaheim.

That extended Hanzal's point streak to three games. He has two goals and eight points in 10 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 8 - 9:37 AM

Martin Hanzal's second goal of the year was all the Coyotes could produce in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Florida.

Hanzal now has an impressive five points in six games, picking up right where he left off before his injury earlier this month by notching a point in both games since his return. The 27-year-old has never exceeded the 40 point mark, but could be worth keeping an eye on if he continues his pace.
Oct 30 - 11:35 PM

Martin Hanzal (lower body) will be back in the Coyotes' lineup on Tuesday.

Hanzal missed three straight games due to the ailment. He has a goal and three points in four contests this season.
Oct 28 - 2:39 PM

Martin Hanzal (lower body) could return to the Arizona lineup as early as Tuesday.

Hanzal suffered an apparent knee injury, although the Coyotes called it a lower body injury, on October 18 and missed all three games this week but will accompany the team on its current road trip. He has skated the last two days and if there are no setbacks, he anticipates playing against Tampa Bay Tuesday. He has a goal and three points in four games but his biggest problem is staying healthy.
Oct 26 - 7:07 AM

Martin Hanzal is still considered day-to-day with a lower body injury.

Hanzal was seen earlier in the week wearing a bandage around his left knee. He has missed the last couple of games. Keep the oft-injured center on reserve for now.
Oct 25 - 6:11 AM

Martin Hanzal (lower body) didn't travel with the Coyotes to Minnesota.

In other words, Hanzal will obviously miss Thursday's game against the Wild. He has a goal and three points in four contests this season.
Oct 22 - 3:48 PM

Martin Hanzal suffered a lower-body injury Saturday night against the Blues.

Hanzal needed to be helped off the ice after a fall. The team is calling him day-to-day and said he'd be re-evaluated Sunday. He played 8:13 in the loss. Hanzal has three points this season.
Oct 19 - 1:02 AM

Martin Hanzal had two assists in Arizona's 7-4 victory over Edmonton.

That gives Hanzal a goal and three points in three games. That's a solid start for him, but at the end of the day, we're projecting that he'll get around 40 points. It's also worth noting that the Coyotes have enjoyed blowouts against the lowly Jets and Oilers so far this season, which has skewed a lot of their player's numbers.
Oct 16 - 7:47 AM

Martin Hanzal scored a goal in Arizona's 6-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Hanzal also had a minus-two rating though in 15:05 minutes of ice time. He reached the 40-point mark in 2013-14 and we're not expecting him to do any better this season.
