Big Phoenix Coyotes center Martin Hanzal‘s Saturday is over early after he suffered a lower-body injury, according to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic.

Hanzal was hurt after he was “tangled up” with Anaheim Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri, McLellan reports.

It could be a significant loss for the Coyotes, as the “Zoolander”-inspired “Hanzal is so hot right now” meme applies more than ever in 2013-14. The 26-year-old has 19 points in 19 games to compliment his typically rugged two-way play.
