The Arizona Coyotes on Friday announced they assigned goaltender Adin Hill to the Tucson Roadrunners.

Hill was called up to the Coyotes earlier in the week as a depth option in case starter Darcy Kuemper was unable to play because of an upper body injury suffered during Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Assuming Hill doesn’t play in the Coyotes’ season finale on Saturday, he will finish the 2018-19 season with a 7-5 record and 2.76 goals against average in 13 appearances with the Coyotes.

He was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week for the week of Nov. 26 to Dec. 2.

The Coyotes were eliminated from the playoffs on Thursday, marking the seventh consecutive season the team has missed the playoffs.
