Defenseman Brandon Gormley
, whom the Coyotes selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, suffered a lower-body injury on Friday while playing for the Moncton Wildcats in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game.
The Coyotes are awaiting a status report on Gormley, who has notched nine goals and 14 assists for Moncton in 20 games this season, and plan to bring him to the Valley later this week to be examined by the team's medical staff.
"At this time, the injury appears to be a non-surgical injury yet it would be inaccurate for me to comment on his future treatment and recovery time until we have more information," Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney said.
Gormley, who attended the Coyotes' training camp in September, signed an entry-level contract with the team on Oct. 8.
