The Arizona Coyotes lost defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson late in the first period on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

Ekman-Larsson was the recipient of a Luke Schenn hit in the Kings zone and was laboring to get off the ice.

Schenn, who left his feet on the hit and caught Ekman-Larsson high, was assessed a minor penalty for charging on the play.

Ekman-Larsson returned to start the second period.

The 24-year-old leads all Coyotes defensemen with 34 points this season and leads all blue liners in average ice time per game at 25:27.
