Phoenix Coyotes‘ 2006 1st round pick (#29 overall) defenseman Chris Summers(5) recently received his first playing time in his second call-up of the 2011/2012 season for a couple of NHL apprearances; he played 2 games with the team last season.
He fared better on this recall going a +1 with a shot on net.
He’s been since reassigned to their AHL affiliate Portland Pirates where he will continue to work on his game in just his second year pro. In his rookie year with San Antonio Rampage, last year’s Coyotes‘ AHL affiliate, he put up 1 goal with 9 assists in 75 games. In 15 games this year he’s got a couple of assists but is a bit more impressive a +5.
Look for him to get another look this season.
