TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, shared information regarding three transactions today.
Arizona Coyotes President of Hockey Operations and General Manager John Chayka announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Adin Hill from Tucson on an emergency basis. The 21-year-old has posted a 14-10-3 record with a .911 save percentage (SV%) and a 2.41 goals against average (GAA) in 27 games played with the Roadrunners this season. Hill, a native of Comox, BC, made his NHL debut on October 17 with the Coyotes and played in a total of three games during the recall. At 6-foot-4, 203 lbs., Hill was selected in the third round (#76 overall) by Arizona in 2015.
As a corresponding move, the Roadrunners have recalled goaltender Michael Houser from the Fort Wayne Komets. The 25-year-old holds a record of 25-10-2 with a .907 save percentage and a 2.76 goals against average in 39 games this season. Born in Youngstown, OH, Houser also has two shutouts in the ECHL this season.
Additionally, Tucson has recalled forward Derek Army from the Wheeling Nailers. The 26-year-old from North Kingstown, RI was acquired by the Roadrunners last Monday from the Milwaukee Admirals in exchange for future considerations. This season, he recorded one goal and four assists for a total of five points with Milwaukee, as well as seven goals and 13 assists for a total of 20 points while captaining his ECHL club.
The Roadunners host the Texas Stars for the first time this season on Friday and Saturday at Tucson Arena.
