Jeff Halpern's goal with 3:05 left gave Phoenix a 4-3 win Monday night against Los Angeles.

Halpern's fourth goal this season was a shot from the left side that Kings goalie Jonathan Quick appeared to stop with his stick, however replays showed that the puck crossed the line. Keith Yandle also had a strong night with a goal and an assist, while Rob Klinkhammer and Mikkel Boedker also scored for the Coyotes.
Mar 18 - 3:51 AM

Jeff Halpern scored his third goal of the season on Sunday.

Halpern is good on the draw and is a defensive specialist so when he scores, it is a treat and a surprise. Just an FYI.
Mar 3 - 9:11 AM

Jeff Halpern recorded an assist in a 3-2 loss to Buffalo on Thursday.

Halpern is a defensive center at this stage of his career and has just eight points in 41 games this season. He's also now 52 contests away from 1,000, so he should reach that mark if he secures a new contract for the 2014-15 campaign.

Jeff Halpern (upper body) will back in the Phoenix Coyotes' lineup tonight after a two-week absence and the Coyotes think he'll be able to help their penalty-killing unit, which has been poor lately.

The Coyotes’ penalty kill has allowed at least one power-play goal in their past five games. That could be a recipe for disaster tonight against the Capitals, who have the best power-play unit in the NHL (28.1 percent) and a league-high 18 power-play goals. "It’s a very basic power play that’s just executed really well," said Halpern, who is a D.C. native and spent seven seasons with the Caps. "They have one-timers, three real good one-timers in the spots that you want them, and they have two great setup guys on the one side feeding those guys. So you know what they’re going to do. It’s the looks that they get and coming up with a bit of a game plan to take away those things. You can draw it up on the board. You know what’s coming.

Jeff Halpern (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He was moved onto Phoenix's IR to make room for Lauri Kopikoski's return. Halpern was injured in last Saturday's win over Edmonton.

Jeff Halpern (upper body) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

Halpern sustained what is likely a back injury during Saturday's contest. He has a goal and four penalty minutes in six games this season.

The upper body injury suffered by Jeff Halpern Saturday is likely to his back.

Coach Dave Tippett said that he was suffering from spasms as he was removed from the game after playing only four shifts. Tippett also thought the injury was not serious so consider him day-to-day for now.

Jeff Halpern exited Saturday's game versus Edmonton with an upper-body injury.

He wasn't able to return after seeing four shifts for 2:25 of ice time. Halpern has one goal, six hits and seven blocks in six appearances with the Coyotes this season. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Jeff Halpern won eight of nine faceoffs in his season debut.

The Coyotes signed Halpern to a two-way contract to bolster their bottom-six. He also helped kill penalties while logging 8:30 minutes of ice time.

Jeff Halpern has successfully cleared waivers.

Phoenix had to expose Halpern to waivers after he inked a one-year, two-way contract because Halpern started the season in Europe. He's projected to serve as a bottom-six forward.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 10:37:00 AM

The Phoenix Coyotes placed recently signed center Jeff Halpern on waivers Sunday.

He's on a one-year, two-way contract that could give the Coyotes valuable veteran depth. It's difficult to imagine him being an impact-player fantasy-wise, but he's the kind of defensively adept player Phoenix covets.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 01:09:00 PM

The Phoenix Coyotes have signed Jeff Halpern to a one-year, two-way contract.

The team made the announcement on Saturday. Halpern played 46 games between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens last season. He has to clear waivers before he can join the Coyotes' roster because he played two games with TPS Turku in Finland. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.
Sat, Oct 12, 2013 06:16:00 PM

Jeff Halpern has signed a short-term deal with TPS Turku of the SM-liiga.

The deal will expire on October 12. Halpern played with Montreal and the Rangers last season and at age 37 does not want to retire. If he plays a game in Finland during the NHL regular season, he will have to pass through waivers if he signs on with an NHL team later in the year. Halpern had a goal and three points in 46 games in 2013 so it's likely that no team would put a claim in on him.
