Coyotes sign former 2nd-round pick Bahl to entry-level contract
The Arizona Coyotes announced Friday they have signed defenseman Kevin Bahl to a three-year entry-level contract.
The 18-year-old Bahl was a second-round pick by the Coyotes in the 2018 NHL Draft.
For the Ottawa 67’s this season in the Ontario Hockey League, Bahl has five points and 28 assists for a total of 33 points, along with 87 penalty minutes.
Known for his size, the 6-foot-6, 234-pound defenseman has played 181 career OHL games for Ottawa.
Bahl was the 55th pick in last year’s draft, a selection the Coyotes acquired from the Minnesota Wild in the Martin Hanzal deal from Feb. of 2017.
