Arizona Coyotes forward Andrew Ladd will miss the next four-to-six weeks with a lower-body injury.

Ladd has six goals and nine points in 42 games this season after playing in just one game last season with the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

The 36-year-old, who was traded to the Coyotes from the New York Islanders last summer, is signed through next season at a cap hit of $5.5 million.

A veteran of 992 NHL games, Ladd has 255 goals and 547 points over his career with the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Atlanta Thrashers, Winnipeg Jets, Islanders and Coyotes.
