Phoenix Coyotes sign Dziurzynski to entry-level deal, recall Klinkhammer, send Rundblad to AHL

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have recalled Rob Klinkhammer from the AHL, sent defenceman David Rundblad to the minors and signed forward Darian Dziurzynski to a two-year entry level contract.

General manager Don Maloney announced the moves Friday.

The 21-year-old Dziurzynski has five goals in 40 games this season for the AHL's Portland Pirates.

He was a fifth-round pick of Phoenix in 2011 and had 27 goals in 61 games last season with Brandon of the WHL.

Klinkhammer has a team-leading 14 goals for Portland in 53 games and ranks 10th in the AHL with 44 points.

The 26-year-old Klinkhammer was signed by the Coyotes as a free agent after NHL stops in Chicago and Ottawa.

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.
