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

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
