Arizona Coyotes ahead Andrew Ladd failed his physical on Thursday and will be placed on the long-term injured reserve, PHNX Sports’ Craig Morgan reports.
Ladd was acquired from the New York Islanders last year and as a result of his placement on LTIR, the Coyotes will get a third round in 2023, which was previously conditional. The Coyotes also received two second-round picks in trade in exchange for future considerations.
Ladd had seven goals and 12 points in 51 games last season, having played in just one game last year with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
The 36-year-old will receive a $5.5 million contract this season.
A veteran of 992 NHL games, Ladd has 255 goals and 547 points in his career with the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Atlanta Thrashers, Winnipeg Jets, Islanders and Coyotes.
