The Arizona Coyotes and Mikkel Boedker should start hammering out a new deal in the not too distant future.

This is the final year of Boedker's contract and he is eligible to become a restricted free agent starting on July 1. He will not return this season to the ice as he underwent surgery to remove his spleen in mid-January, but he has been one of the few bright spots up front for Arizona the last couple of seasons. "He likes it there," said Jarrett Bousquet, Boedker's agent. "He's excited about what the team is doing and the direction and ... he's excited, and it's just a matter of nailing down a contract that works for both sides." Boedker should be able to ramp things up in the summer and be ready for the start of training camp. He is worth a late round pickup next season as most poolies will not notice him because of his injury plagued 2014-15 season.

Mikkel Boedker has officially been ruled out for the rest of the regular season.

Boedker is suffering from an upper-body injury and has been out of the lineup since January 20th. The 25-year-old will finish the season with 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games this season.

Mikkel Boedker and Connor Murphy have been talking about the recovery from surgery to remove a spleen.

Boedker underwent the surgery three weeks ago while Murphy had similar surgery as a teenager. Boedker is still at least a few weeks away from returning to action (it could be the remainder of the season) and has lost 20 pounds thus far, but thinks he'll regain the weight in the off-season. Boedker had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games before the surgery. Keep an eye on him next season, especially if he is unable to return in 2015.

GM Don Maloney is looking to start contract negotiations with Mikkel Boedker shortly.

Boedker will become a restricted free agent at the end of the season if he is not signed. He is currently out of action as he had his spleen removed before the All-Star break but has been the Coyotes top goal scorer this season with 14 goals. He has 28 points in 45 games this season and would be a valuable commodity if he was traded or another team saw fit to offer him a contract.

Mikkel Boedker (spleen) has been allowed to travel to Glendale.

Boedker will meet up with his teammates when they return home from their current road trip following their game on Feb. 3. He's not ready to resume skating yet, but he might be back in the lineup in around three-to-five weeks.

Mikkel Boedker had successful surgery Sunday to remove his injured spleen.

Arizona GM Don Maloney said that Boedker may return from Winnipeg, where the procedure took place, in two-to-three days. Boedker is expected to need four-to-six week to recover. He is on the Coyotes' injured reserve list.
Jan 20 - 2:03 PM

Mikkel Boedker (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Boedker is regarded as week-to-week so this move isn't surprising. The timing of his injury is particularly unfortunate given how hot he was recently. He went on a four-game goal scoring streak from Jan. 8-15. When he misses Tuesday's contest, it will bring his streak of 257 consecutive games played to an end.
Jan 20 - 8:40 AM

Mikkel Boedker is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The Coyotes have listed Boedker as week-to-week. Boedker has 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games in 2014-15. It will be interesting to see if Martin Erat gets an opportunity to help fill the void during Boedker's absence. Erat has just six goals and 19 points in 44 contests this season, but he's averaged just 15:37 minutes per contest and only an average of 14:02 in January.
Jan 19 - 3:07 PM

Mikkel Boedker scored a beauty of a goal in Arizona's 4-1 loss to Calgary on Thursday night.

Boedker's scored with comedic effect as he retrieved a Keith Yandle rebound by the right offensive dot, swooped down to the bottom of the circle, only to race to the slot and go bar-down over Joni Orito's blocker as he fell backwards. Go find a highlight. Boedker now leads the Coyotes with both 14 goals and 28 points, and he's shooting at a 17.9% clip.
Jan 16 - 12:18 AM

Mikkel Boedker notched a goal in Arizona's 3-2 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Boedker now has goals in three straight games and has totaled four points over that span. The 25 year-old has 13 goals and 14 assists for 27 points in 42 games this season. He has been one of the rare bright spots in dismal season out in the desert. Shane Doan had the other goal for the Coyotes.
Jan 14 - 12:57 AM

Mikkel Boedker scored the only goal for Arizona in its 5-1 loss to the Senators on Saturday night.

Boedker scored the game’s first goal not even five minutes in, but that was it for the Coyotes. He has goals in two straight, with four points in those two games. Boedker is a fringy fantasy forward with 12 goals and 26 points this season. Sam Gagner and Lucas Lessio got the assists.
Jan 10 - 10:27 PM

Coach Dave Tippett moved Mikkel Boedker back to the right wing Thursday and the results were loud and clear.

Boedker potted a couple of goals on Thursday to give him 11 this season. "It's easy to be creative on that side," Boedker said. "Your stick is more in the middle of the ice and you have a little more leverage. You can protect the puck a little more. That way it's easier to play on the right side." Boedker now has 25 points and could be a nice pick up in deeper leagues for the second half of the season as he did have 51 points last year.
Jan 10 - 7:19 AM

Mikkel Boedker popped two goals in the Coyotes' 4-1 win over the Jets on Thursday night.

He opened the scoring on the power play in the first period by cleaning up Antoine Vermette's rebound, and then finished the scoring by streaking down the right win and around Ondrej Pavelec in the third. He's now tied with Oliver Ekman-Larsson in goals with 11, and third on the team in points with 25 through 40 games.
Jan 9 - 2:21 AM

Mikkel Boedker had two assists in a 4-2 victory over Philadelphia on Monday.

Boedker ended a five-game point drought. After breaking out with 51 points in 2013-14, Boedker has been solid, but not spectacular this season. He has nine goals and 22 points in 36 contests, which puts him on a point-per-game pace we feel he can maintain for the remainder of the season.
