Coyotes sign centre Jordan Martinook to three-year entry level contract

VANCOUVER - The Phoenix Coyotes have signed second-round draft pick Jordan Martinook to a three-year entry level contract.

Martinook had 40 goals and 24 assists in a breakout 2011-12 season with the Western Hockey League's Vancouver Giants. He was second on the team in goals behind former captain Brendan Gallagher and third in points behind Gallagher and Marek Tvrdon.

The six-foot, 209-pound native of Leduc, Alta., was selected 58th overall the Coyotes in the 2012 draft. The 20-year-old centre is expected to play with the American Hockey League's Portland Pirates this season.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
