Goaltender Mark Visentin is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing ankle surgery.

Visentin was the Coyotes first round pick in 2010 and was thought to be Arizona's goalie of the future but an ankle injury suffered in training camp was deemed to be serious enough for season-ending surgery as he did not play a game this season. This info is for anyone wondering why he was not recalled when the Coyotes dealt Devan Dubnyk to the Wild and recalled Michael Lee.

Mark Visentin is still on the sidelines with a leg strain.

Visentin suffered the injury six days ago when he stopped a shot. He will likely start the season in the minors so his fantasy value is non-existent at this time.

Mark Visentin needed to be helped off the ice after blocking a shot with his leg in Sunday's scrimmage.

Visentin couldn't put weight on the injured leg, which raised alarm bells, but fortunately it's not as bad as it could be. He has a leg strain and might be back in a day or two, according to Coyotes GM Don Maloney.

Mark Visentin stopped 29 shots but couldn't overcome a shaky start and was the losing goaltender in his NHL debut as the Phoenix Coyotes took a 3-2 loss Saturday night from the visiting San Jose Sharks.

Visentin allowed two goals to San Jose gunner Joe Pavelski in the first five shots he faced. "I definitely felt the jitters out there, but I thought the team did a great job coming back in the second, definitely helped me feel more comfortable out there," said Visentin, who was Phoenix's second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. "I was having fun at times, but it stinks losing."

Mark Visentin will get his first NHL start Saturday night.

He'll face the shooters of the San Jose Sharks. Mike Smith has been out of action since Mar. 24 and Thomas Greiss has tended to the crease in his absence. The Coyotes want to give some of their younger guys playing time now that the playoffs are out of reach.

The Phoenix Coyotes have called up Mark Visentin.

Visentin has a 3.30 GAA and .901 save percentage in 44 AHL games this season. He will serve as Thomas Greiss' understudy while Mike Smith recovers from a leg injury.

Mark Visentin kicked out 39 of 40 shots in the Portland Pirates' 2-1 win against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Mark Visentin was brilliant in Portland's 2-1 win over Providence on Wednesday night, making 48 saves.

Portland was outshot 49-31 in the game, so Visentin's effort in net was the main reason his team emerged with the win. The 20-year-old has been a bit shaky this year, with a 2.70 goals-against average and .916 save percentage, but this game is definitely a good sign.

Mark Visentin yielded three goals on 31 shots in Portland's 4-2 loss against Worcester on Wednesday night.

Not how you want to perform when given a rare nod between the pipes. Visentin was selected by the Coyotes in 2010 draft so they certainly have high hopes for their 20-year-old netminder. In just four games, he has a poor 3.22 goals-against average and .908 save percentage, but he may need some more consistent playing time to get things straightened out. He steadily got better each year in the OHL before heading to the pros.

Mark Visentin was sent back to the OHL Thursday.

The goalie was the Coyotes first round pick in the 2010 Entry Draft and Phoenix is quite high on the young netminder as he is their goalie of the future at this time. Evan Bloodoff, Brett Hextall, Ryan Hollweg, Mathieu Brodeur, Nick Ross, Garrett Stafford and Michael Stone were assigned to Portland of the AHL.

Coyotes' goalie Mark Visentin is looking to impress during the Junior Development Camp.

Visentin allowed the collapse to occur when Russia stunned Canada 5-3 last year. "For me, I didn't really think about it too much," he said. "I'm just the kind of guy who likes to get stuff done and whether the media is on your side or not, it's something you have to do … it's part of the game. My thoughts after that loss were just go and get it over with. It was probably the toughest time of my life after that game and it was so hard to swallow. I learned a lot from it, though, and it motivated me to get even better." He will look to impress and put the doubters to rest this camp.

The Phoenix Coyotes have signed goaltender Mark Visentin to an entry level contract.

Visentin was taken 27th overall in the 2010 Entry Draft and backstopped Team Canada to a silver medal at the World Junior Hockey Championships during the Christmas break. He was 30-9-2-4 for the Niagara Ice Dogs of the OHL with a 2.52 GAA and a .917 save percentage. He will likely need a couple of seasons in the minors at least after he finishes his junior hockey career next season.
