Report: Coyotes' Lombardi may be out awhile with injury

The SportsXchange

Phoenix Coyotes center Matthew Lombardi suffered an injury in Thursday night's 5-3 loss at San Jose, and Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said in a radio interview on Friday he might out awhile.

"Matthew got injured last night and may be out for a significant amount of time," Maloney said on SiriusXM NHL radio.

Maloney did not specify Lombardi's injury or how it occurred.

He left the ice for good after a 14-second shift in the second period.

Lombardi has a history of head injuries, although there is no indication that he sustained a head injury Thursday.

Lombardi had eight goals and 10 assists in 62 games last season for Toronto, and has two assists in four games for Phoenix this season.

The Coyotes have called up Nick Johnson from the AHL club in Portland.
