Future Watch: Adin Hill Rookie Hockey Cards, Coyotes – Adin Hill was drafted 76th overall by the Arizona Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-6 netminder had the kind of frame that NHL clubs all want to have in a goaltender but few of them have panned out at the NHL level so far.
He starred for the Portland Winter Hawks of the WHL for a little over two seasons. During his time there, the BC native had save percentages of .934, .921 and .917 respectively.
Late in 2015 he turned pro playing in four games in the AHL for the Springfield Falcons. The next season he played in 40 games with a 3.16 GAA, 16 wins and a .905 save percentage. During his time there he did get sent down to play five games with the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL because they had a full boat of prospects in Tuscon.
This year with the Roadrunners he had a 2.41 GAA and .911 save percentage with the Coyotes’ AHL team. He had a 14-10-0 record with two shutouts.
When there was some movement at the trade deadline, and injuries occurred, Hill had a chance to play for the Coyotes. He played in four games so far towards the end of the season. Not bad for a 21-year-old backstop. He got his first win against the Los Angeles Kings in the shootout stopping 33 of 36 shots. He got the call to start five minutes after he got to the rink. He got the chance because the starter, Darcy Kuemper fell ill.
Here’s a look at his first NHL win:
Collectors should be tracking him. You never know where the next star goalie will come from. Hill has just as good a chance as anybody.
