Coyotes' Michael Kesselring: Assist streak at four games
Kesselring logged an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 6-0 win over the Capitals.
Kesselring has a helper in each of the last four games, and he's gone plus-7 across his last six outings. The 23-year-old is proving himself more and more ready for at least a third-pairing role as he sticks in the lineup. With Sean Durzi (lower body) leaving Monday's game early, the Coyotes may not have to make a decision between Kesselring and Josh Brown for a little longer, especially if Travis Dermott (hand) returns to keep the team rolling with seven-blueliner lineups....

Coyotes' Michael Kesselring: Lends helper in win
Kesselring notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
Kesselring has picked up an assist in each of the last three games. The 23-year-old blueliner has four helpers over eight contests this season. Injuries have hit the Coyotes' defense hard, allowing Kesselring some consistent playing time since mid-November. It's unclear if he'll stay in the lineup -- or on the NHL roster altogether -- after Travis Dermott (hand) is ready to be activated from injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Michael Kesselring: Adds another assist
Kesselring logged an assist and two hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.
Kesselring has helpers in each of the last two games. The 23-year-old received steady playing time when Juuso Valimaki was out with a mouth injury, but Valimaki returned Thursday with the Coyotes using seven defensemen. Kesselring, Josh Brown or Troy Stecher seem like the likeliest candidates to get squeezed out if the Coyotes return to a traditional six-blueliner arrangement. Kesselring has three helpers, eight hits, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through seven outings.... See More ... See Less

Kesselring notched an assist and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.

The 23-year-old defenseman has added five shots on net, six hits, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating while averaging 14:22 of ice time per game. While he's stayed in the lineup for a couple of weeks, he may be the defenseman to get bumped when Travis Dermott (hand) is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less

Kesselring notched an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 23-year-old defenseman saw just 11:32 of ice time, none of which came on the power play. He'll likely be in the lineup until one of Travis Dermott (upper body) or Juuso Valimaki (mouth) can return.... See More ... See Less

Kesselring has yet to get into an NHL game this season but will provide some emergency depth as the club departs on a five-game road trip. Through six minor-league contests, the 2018 sixth-round pick has yet to register a point, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much offense from him even if he does suit up for the Coyotes....
