The Arizona Coyotes welcome one new defenseman back, but another one is out vs. the Philadelphia Flyers.
Coyotes’ Sean Durzi (lower body) was not warming up before the game, which indicates he won’t be suiting up for tonight’s tilt.
Previously, Durzi was crunched in the left corner of the boards by Washington Capitals power forward Tom Wilson.

Durzi tried to get back into the action, but was ultimately ruled out for the rest of the contest.
In contrast, defenseman Travis Dermott is back in the ‘Yotes lineup after being ruled out with an upper-body injury since Nov. 9.
Against the Seattle Kraken on Nov. 7, Dermott used his hand to block a shot from center Matty Beniers.
This will be Dermott’s first game after missing the previous 14 for Arizona.
Also at warmups, forward Ryan McGregor was out there, but is a healthy scratch.
Puck-drop between the Coyotes and Flyers commences at 7 p.m. MST.
