Top Liam O'Brien News

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Deposits goal Sunday

    O'Brien scored a goal on four shots and logged three hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

    O'Brien has points in back-to-back contests after an 11-game drought. The 29-year-old has enjoyed some short bursts of offense this season, but he stays in the lineup for his physicality. He's at 13 points, 65 shots on net, 216 hits and 153 PIM through 70 appearances this season.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Adds assist, physicality in win

    O'Brien notched an assist, 10 hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 7-4 win over the Golden Knights.

    O'Brien snapped an 11-game point drought when he set up Michael Carcone's game-tying goal in the third period. During the scoring slump, O'Brien racked up 20 PIM and 43 hits as a physical fourth-liner. The 29-year-old forward is at a career-high 12 points with 213 hits, 153 PIM, 61 shots on net and a minus-1 rating over 69 appearances this season.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Assists in consecutive contests

    O'Brien notched an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Red Wings.

    O'Brien has a helper in three of the last four games. Friday was just the third game all season in which he failed to log a hit. The fourth-liner has 11 points, matching his career high, and he's added 133 PIM, 160 hits and 45 shots on net over 57 appearances.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Contributes helper in loss

    O'Brien recorded an assist, five hits and 10 PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

    O'Brien has a helper in two of the last three games, but it's unwise to expect him to keep up that kind of production. The 29-year-old has 10 points through 56 outings this season, one shy of his career-high 11 from the same number of games in 2022-23. He continues to fill an enforcer role, adding 133 PIM and 160 hits while playing in the bottom six.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Collects helper in win

    O'Brien logged an assist and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.

    O'Brien snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper, though he also missed time with an upper-body injury in that span. The 29-year-old has been a fourth-line fixture when healthy. He's earned nine points, 121 PIM, 150 hits, 43 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 54 games in that limited role this season.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Returning Sunday

    O'Brien (upper body) will return to the Coyotes' lineup Sunday against Winnipeg, Patrick Brown of the team's official site reports.

    O'Brien missed Arizona's last six games after suffering an upper-body injury. The 29-year-old forward has three goals, eight points and 129 hits through 49 games this season. O'Brien will take over for Michael Carcone on the Coyotes' fourth line.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Lands on IR

    O'Brien (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    O'Brien will miss Friday's game against the Hurricanes, but he'll be eligible to return as soon as Sunday against the Avalanche. Either way, the 29-year-old forward has notched just eight points through 49 contests this season, so fantasy managers outside of deep banger leagues -- O'Brien has 116 PIM and 126 hits this season -- shouldn't need to track his status.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Deemed day-to-day

    O'Brien is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury and won't play Wednesday versus the Wild.

    O'Brien's collected only eight points through 49 contests this season, so most fantasy managers won't notice his absence. Adam Ruzicka will likely remain in the lineup until O'Brien is ready to return.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Snaps drought with helper

    O'Brien notched an assist and four hits in Monday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

    O'Brien ended his drought at 14 games with the primary helper on Nick Bjugstad's insurance marker in the third period. Steady offense is typically not a hallmark of O'Brien's play -- the 29-year-old instead relies of his physicality to stick in the lineup. He's at eight points, 108 hits, 105 PIM, 38 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 45 appearances.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Quiet on offense

    O'Brien has gone 13 games without a point after he was held scoreless Thursday in a 2-1 loss to the Canucks.

    O'Brien has racked up 37 PIM, 38 hits and 12 shots on net in that span. The 29-year-old was productive around the start of November, but he's otherwise done little scoring while serving as an enforcer for the Coyotes. He's at seven points, 105 PIM, 103 hits, 37 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 43 outings.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Scores in win

    O'Brien scored a goal on three shots in the Coyotes' 2-0 win over the Sabres on Saturday.

    O'Brien scored on a breakaway just before the midway mark of the third period, beating Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen to extend the Coyotes' lead to 2-0. This goal marks his third of the season and first point in eight games. O'Brien should continue to skate on the fourth line for the time being. He has seven points, 68 PIM and 65 hits through 30 games this seaosn.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Snaps slump with helper

    O'Brien picked up an assist and seven PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.

    O'Brien set up a Travis Boyd goal in the second period and fought Josh Manson in the third. After a burst of offense around the start of November, O'Brien went quiet for 10 games before his helper Thursday. As an enforcer, it's not unusual for the 29-year-old to endure long scoreless stretches. He's managed six points, 43 hits, 64 PIM, 19 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating through 22 outings in a bottom-six role.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Gets goal in loss

    O'Brien scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    O'Brien's tally put the Coyotes ahead 2-0 in the second period. The physical forward is playing some of the best hockey in his career with two goals and three assists over the last five games. That's all of his offense this season, and he's added 10 shots on net, 22 hits, 34 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 11 contests. It seems likely O'Brien will be a fixture on the fourth line throughout 2023-24.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Chips in with helper

    O'Brien posted an assist and three hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.

    O'Brien avoided the penalty box for the first time in six games. He's also been more engaged on offense, earning four points over his last three outings after going scoreless in six straight contests to begin the season. The 29-year-old has a goal, three helpers, eight shots on net, 21 hits, 34 PIM and a plus-3 rating through nine appearances in a fourth-line role.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Gordie Howe hat trick in win

    O'Brien scored a goal, dished an assist, went plus-4, logged two hits and added seven PIM in Monday's 8-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    O'Brien fought Nick Foligno in the first period before adding his goal and assist in the second to earn the Gordie Howe hat trick. After opening the season scoreless in six games, O'Brien has earned three points over his last two outings. The enforcer also has 34 PIM, 18 hits, seven shots on net and a plus-3 rating while working in a fourth-line role.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Plucks apple in loss

    O'Brien notched an assist, four hits, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Kings.

    The helper was O'Brien's first point in seven outings this season. The 29-year-old enforcer has been a fixture on the fourth line, eclipsing 10 minutes of ice time in just two contests so far. He's racked up 16 hits, 27 PIM, six shots on net and a minus-1 rating. Outside of incredibly deep formats that reward the tough stuff, O'Brien is a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Tallies twice in overtime loss

    O'Brien scored two goals on four shots, added four hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    It was O'Brien's first multi-goal game in his career. The 28-year-old had three points over his last two contests, but he remains more of a bottom-line grinder than a big scoring threat. O'Brien had three goals, 11 points, 203 hits, 114 PIM and a minus-5 rating in 56 NHL appearances this season.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Hands out assist

    O'Brien provided an assist and two PIM in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Kraken.

    O'Brien kept the puck in at the blue line and fired a shot that Jack McBain tipped in for the Coyotes' lone goal. The helper was O'Brien's first point in 12 games. The 28-year-old has managed nine points, 199 hits, 114 blocked shots, 35 shots on goal and a minus-7 rating through 55 outings in a bottom-six role.

  • Coyotes' Liam O'Brien: Provides helper

    O'Brien logged an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Canucks.

    O'Brien snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The 28-year-old doesn't add much offense from the fourth line, but he continues to be a tough presence in the lineup. He has eight points, 166 hits, 70 PIM, 28 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 43 appearances.
