Phoenix Coyotes have officially signed their 5th round pick in the 2011 draft (#141 overall), rookie left wing Darian Dziurzynski(26) to a two-year entry level contract after his feisty play for minor league affiliate Portland Pirates.
He was initially reassigned at the start of the season but signed to an AHL contract only.
In 43 games he has 6 goals and 4 assists with 69 penalty minutes and a -5 rating.
The 6’1″ 204 lbs. forward is a pesky presence on the ice. He seems smaller than that but that’s probably because he’s crouched, skating towards the play so much when he’s out there.
It would be easy to see the soon-to-be 22 year old score some NHL ice time as a fourth line energy skater.
