Coyotes sign Czech goalie Marek Langhamer to 3-year entry-level contract

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes signed Czech goalie Marek Langhamer to a three-year entry-level contract Thursday.

The 19-year-old Langhamer was 23-14-3 with a 2.58 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 40 regular-season games for the Medicine Hat Tigers in the Western Hockey League this season. In 18 playoff games for the major junior team, he was 9-8-1 with a 2.35 GAA and .934 save percentage.

Langhamer was drafted in the seventh round in 2012.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
