Phoenix Coyotes‘ 6th round pick in the 2009 draft (#157 overall) left wing Evan Bloodoff(25) never signed a deal with the team but upon being reassigned to their affiliate Portland Pirates out of training camp inked a two-year AHL contract that started in 2011/2012.
In 48 games last year, he hit the scoresheet for 6 goals a pair of assists, while going a shaky -10 plus/minus. The 5’11” 205 lbs. forward was also a healthy scratch for way more games that he would have liked to have been in the stands for.
He skated in only one game so far for the Pirates in 2012/2013 and has been reassigned for the first time in his short pro career to get some more playing time in the ECHL with their affiliate Gwinnett Gladiators. He should get some quality ice time down there and should help his game.
