Panik had not scored a goal in eight games, and as a result, Coyotes' coach Rick Tocchet decided to sit him in the press box against the Habs. Panik, who has played on the team's top linefrom time to time, will rejoin the lineup at the expense of Zac Rinaldo, who will be a healthy scratch. No word on where Panik will line up, though.

Newly-acquired Richard Panik practiced with Derek Stepan and Brendan Perlini on the Coyotes' top line on Thursday.

Panik took the place of Tobias Rieder on the Yotes' top unit. If he does in fact get the chance to skate in that slot, he might be worth a look if your fantasy team has a strong plus/minus rating. Remember, Panik has played with elite players (Jonathan Toews) before and had some success.

The Coyotes believe that Richard Panik's inconsistency this season can be partially attributed to being unlucky.

Arizona has acquired Panik from Chicago after he scored six goals and 16 points in 37 games. That's down from his 22 goals and 44 points in 82 contests in 2016-17. "We feel like some of it this year has just been some unluckiness," Coyotes GM John Chayka said. "We still think he's playing a well-rounded game, still think he's doing a lot of good things that he was doing in the past. He's 26 years old, so he's still a young veteran. But he does provide some veteran experience and takes a bit of a load off some of our younger players ... That's a void we were looking to fill, and we felt that he'd be a good fit for us." This trade will at least provide him with a fresh opportunity.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Richard Panik and Laurent Dauphin from Chicago in exchange for Anthony Duclair and Adam Clendening.

Panik emerged as a decent secondary scorer in 2016-17 with his 22 goals and 44 points in 82 games. Compared to that, his six goals and 16 points in 37 contests this season has left a bit to be desired. Panik, who will turn 27 in February, also doesn't have as much upside as Duclair and Panik's two-year, $5.6 million contract is pricier. At the same time, Duclair reportedly wanted to be traded, so this trade makes sense in that context. Plus, the Coyotes did get prospect Dauphin back in the trade.

Richard Panik will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

Panik has struggled offensively for a while now with no goals in 21 consecutive games and one assist in his last 11 outings. "We think he could be way more dangerous and can add to our team game by being more of a power forward — physically getting more involved and having the puck more," coach Joel Quenneville said. "Whether he's shooting or around the net, disturbing there — but having the puck and keeping it more, as opposed to being a dead-end at that end when he does get around [the puck]." Panik has five goals and 14 points in 30 games this year.
