The Arizona Coyotes announced Saturday that the team has signed Minnesota Duluth freshman goaltender Hunter Miska to an entry-level contract.
“We are very pleased to sign Hunter to an entry-level contract,” said Coyotes GM John Chayka in a statement. “Hunter was one of the top goalies in the NCAA last year and he was highly coveted by numerous NHL teams. We are excited to have him join our organization and look forward to watching him develop.”
The 21-year-old Miska posted a 27-5-5 record with a .920 save percentage and a 2.20 GAA with five shutouts in 2016-17 for the NCAA tournament runner-up Bulldogs.
Miska was also named a finalist for the Mike Richter Award.
