GLENDALE, ARIZONA -- Arizona Coyotes President of Hockey Operations and General Manager John Chayka announced today that the Coyotes have signed defenseman Jordan Gross to a two-year entry-level contract. As per Club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
"Jordan was one of the top defensemen in the NCAA last year and we're thrilled to add him to our organization," said Chayka. "He's a mobile, puck-moving, right shot defenseman who is very smart. He will join a great group of young players that we now have in Arizona."

Gross ranked third on Notre Dame in scoring and led all Fighting Irish defensemen in points.
