Observations:

 

March 2015- Jordan Szwarz has been recalled to the Coyotes. After spending a good amount of time with Arizona last season he was expected to make the big club this year as a bottom six energy forward. Instead he has spent the whole season up to this point with Portland of the AHL. With nine goals and 21 points in 42 games, its been a solid year for Szwarz. Don't expect much offense from him though with the struggling Coyotes. Keith Duggan

 

July 2014- The Coyotes have re-signed Szwarz to two-year, two-way contract. He split 2013-14 between the big club and Portland of the AHL, where he was team captain. Szwarz will push for a full-time role with the Coyotes this coming season but fantasy wise he won't do much since that will be a bottom six role. Keith Duggan

 

November 2013 – After four years of playing with the Saginaw Spirit in the OHL, leaving as one of the most popular players in the team’s history, Szwarz is now in his third professional season with the Phoenix organization. Szwarz’s bread and butter is his work ethic, on and off the ice, never quitting on a play and showing no fear of going into the corners to battle for the puck. He has speed and quick hands, with a little bit of offensive flair. Szwarz is another solid two-way player who would be a perfect fit for a Tippett-coached team.  At the beginning of the 2013-2014 season, he was named captain of the Portland Pirates despite only being 23 years old and Pirates’ coach Ray Edwards called him the “best penalty killer in the AHL”. With a strong start to this season with five points in six games, Szwarz was called up to the Coyotes on October 28th.  In three games with the Coyotes he scored his first NHL goal and has not looked out of place with the big club. He is only averaging six minutes a game though and will probably end up back with the Pirates to get more playing time since he is still on his entry level contract and doesn’t have to clear waivers.

Fantasy Outlook: D

 A borderline NHL player, if he does make the Coyotes its a bottom six, energy type player who kills penalties.
