An offensive-minded defenseman, Moser is the No. 25-rated European skater according to EliteProspects.com among draft eligible prospects.
In 2020-21, he played 58 games for his club and country, tallying nine goals and 24 assists.
Moser was Arizona’s third draft pick of the day, joining No. 37 overall pick in forward Josh Doan — the son of former team captain Shane Doan — and No. 43 overall pick in LW Ilya Fedotov.
They join forward Dylan Guenther, the ninth overall pick, in the Coyotes draft class.
Arizona made a number of moves this week, including trading captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson and forward Conor Garland to the Vancouver Canucks.
The Coyotes have a total of seven picks on the second day of the NHL Draft.
