Exactly what has been ailing Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan for the last week hasn't been revealed. But coach Dave Tippett indicated the illness isn't simply a short-term concern, and it could keep Phoenix's leading goal scorer and leader out of the lineup for an extended period.
Doan was not on the ice Thursday morning and will miss his third straight game when the Coyotes host the New York Islanders. Doan has a team-best 12 goals and 23 points in 27 games and leaves a big hole in the Coyotes lineup, both in production and leadership.
"He's still under the weather and he's still not going to be available for the foreseeable future," Tippett said. "He's still getting some tests done, so hopefully it's not long, long-term."
