Mark Louis(33) Portland Pirates

Undrafted 6’4″ 220 lbs. defenseman Mark Louis(33) signed a one-year, two-way contract with Phoenix Coyotes for the 2012/2013 season.

He was originally signed to a pto with their AHL affiliate Portland Pirates late last season and inked an standard player contract with them a little more than a week later.

In 23 games he has no goals and four assists but never backing down from a challenge accumulated 72 penalty minutes.

The one aspect of his game where he’ll need to be more accountable is plus/minus. The 25-year old was a -7.

As he approaches his first full year of pro hockey as a rookie, he’ll learn to play with more responsibility in his own zone. Chances are because of his extra-big-sized frame, he may even merit some looks for some NHL action.
