Coyotes' Anders Lindback suffers unspecified off-ice injury

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona Coyotes backup goalie Anders Lindback suffered an unspecified off-ice injury prior to warm-ups for the team's game Monday against the Montreal Canadiens and was not available.

The team said Lindback will be evaluated by the Coyotes' medical staff, with an update provided Tuesday.

The short notice left Arizona with no chance to call up a goalie from the minors in time for the game, so they will use Nathan Schoenfeld, son of New York Rangers assistant GM and former Coyotes coach Jim Schoenfeld, as the backup to Louis Domingue.

Jim Schoenfeld was hired as the assistant GM in 2007 in New York, when Don Maloney became Arizona's GM.

Nathan Schoenfeld is the son-in-law of Coyotes equipment manager Stan Wilson. He lives in the Phoenix area.
