DALLAS -- Phoenix Coyotes forward Scottie Upshall is out indefinitely with a torn ACL in his right knee.


General manager Don Maloney made the announcement before Sunday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Upshall was injured in Thursday's 3-2 win over Calgary and missed Saturday night's 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers. The club said surgery will be necessary to repair the tear.

The 26-year-old right wing has a team-leading 18 goals in 49 games this season.
