The Arizona Coyotes recently inked 2015 draft selection Adin Hill to an entry-level deal with the club, and now he – along with two other team prospects already on entry-level deals – will join the team’s AHL affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts with the culmination of their own major junior post-seasons.
The Coyotes confirmed on Thursday that Hill, who finished his second season in goal for the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks with a whopping 65 regular season appearances, will be joined by forward Christian Fischer and blue liner Dysin Mayo on the Springfield Falcons to finish out their spring 2016 campaigns. The trio will all be inserted into Springfield’s lineups for this week, and will help the AHL club finish out what’s been a somewhat tough year for them.
As mentioned above, Hill is coming off a year that saw him make 65 appearances in net for the Winterhawks, recording a .917 save percentage in all situations while doing so and going 32-27-6. Fellow WHLer Mayo is finishing off a year that saw him record six goals and 37 assists through 71 games played for the Edmonton Oil Kings. Both he and Hill were eliminated in the first round of the WHL playoffs.
Fischer, on the other hand, is coming out of the OHL, where he just finished off his first season with the Winsdor Spitfires. The former USNDP forward racked up 40 goals and 90 points in just 66 games for Windsor in the regular season, which had him leading his team in scoring by a massive 16 points through the year in his post-draft campaign. Windsor was also eliminated in the first round of their own post-season battle.
