Observations

April 2018- The Coyotes added the offensive-minded defenseman Jordan Gross to the mix by signing the Hobey Baker Award nominee to a two-year, entry-level contract. Gross, who recently completed an impressive four-year career at the University of Notre Dame, quickly joined the Coyotes AHL affiliate in Tucson before their season ended. He took warmups in one game and suited up the next contest, notching two assists in his pro debut. Gross played 159 games for the Fighting Irish over his four seasons and produced 121 points (36 goals, 85 assists). Only two defensemen tallied more career points for Notre Dame. As a senior, Gross notched 10 goals and 20 assists, third on the team in points and tops among d-men along with leading his team and Big Ten defenseman with 143 shots on goal. He also helped guide the Irish to the NCAA championship game, which it lost 2-1 to Minnesota-Duluth. “Jordan was one of the top defenseman in the NCAA last year and we’re thrilled to add him to our organization,” Coyotes GM John Chayka recently said. “He’s a mobile, puck-moving, right-shot defenseman who is very smart.” Gross most likely starts next season in the AHL but if he continues to impress could see some time with the Coyotes. Might be a fantasy dark horse candidate as he seems to have the makings of the new NHL defenseman. Not overly big but a strong skater with excellent offensive instincts. Gross could be the next Tory Krug or he could be the next college FA that fizzles off just as quick. Keith Duggan
