GLENDALE -- Coyotes goaltending prospect Hunter Miska's stock is on the rise.

Miska, who is playing in his first professional season as a member of the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League, has posted a 15-4-0-0 record with a 2.69 goals-against average, a .904 save percentage and has allowed 57 goals in 23 games. 

After surrendering a season-high six goals in his professional debut on Oct. 7 against San Diego, he has not given up more than four goals in a game and has held opponents to two goals or less in 11 different contests.

Miska is currently in the midst of his hottest stretch of the season as he won seven straight decisions from Dec. 29 through Feb. 2. 

Miska, who signed as a free agent last April, comes to the Coyotes organization after a season at the University of Minnesota-Duluth where he helped lead the program to the Frozen Four championship game after posting a regular season record of 27-5-5 with a 2.20 GAA, and a .920 save percentage with five shutouts.

Miska's 15 wins are the second-most among all AHL rookie goaltenders, while he ranks in the top 15 for wins among all AHL goaltenders.
