Coyotes' Jakob Chychrun leaves game with lower-body injury

Watch as Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun is hit by Boston Bruins defenceman Derek Forbort and is forced to exit the game afterwards.

Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun left Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins with a lower-body injury.

Chychrun was knocked into the boards by Bruins defenceman Derek Forbort early into the second period. The 23-year-old Chychrun headed to the dressing room and did not return.

Chychrun has 27 points (seven goals and 14 assists) in 47 games this season and has been linked to trade rumours with the deadline just a little over a week away.

Arizona erased a two-goal deficit but fell 3-2 to Boston, snapping a season-high four-game winning streak.

The Coyotes are last in the Western Conference with an 18-36-4 record and continue their road trip Monday visiting the Ottawa Senators.
