Following a two-game absence with an upper-body injury, Coyotes defenseman J.J. Moser warmed up and is slated to return into the starting lineup, indicating that he will play tonight.

Moser has been out since Dec. 23 when he was on the end of a huge collision with Colorado Avalanche forward Miles Wood in Arizona’s 4-1 loss that evening, leaving during the contest.

‘Yotes head coach André Tourigny spoke on the extent of Moser’s injury timetable back on Dec. 27, stating that it was not anything serious at the time and he would be back soon.

“He (Moser) is out right now,” Tourigny said. “We don’t expect that to be long, but probably not today for sure and probably not the next one. He is doing good, so good news.”

Moser did not feature in the 5-4 overtime win against the Avalanche last Wednesday or the 2-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks this past Friday.

For the Coyotes, Moser has three goals, 12 assists, 29 hits and 55 blocks in 33 games this season before his setback.

The game between the Coyotes and Panthers begins at 7 p.m. MST.
