Arizona Coyotes defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is expected to miss four to six weeks with an upper-body injury sustained earlier this week.

The Coyotes said Thursday that Gostisbehere was injured during Tuesday night's 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Gostisbehere, 29, has 29 points (nine goals, 20 assists) in 48 games this season. His point total is second on the team behind Clayton Keller (41).

Gostisbehere is in the final year of a six-year, $27 million deal he signed with Philadelphia in 2017 and will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. The Coyotes acquired him from the Flyers in July 2021.

He has 299 points (83 goals, 216 assists) and 183 penalty minutes in 511 career games with the Flyers (2014-21) and Coyotes.
