Coyotes sign Szwarz, Domingue
The Phoenix Coyotes have signed two of their 2010 draft picks.
Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney has announced the team signed right wing Jordan Szwarz and goalie Louis Domingue. Both have agreed to entry level contracts, but following club policy, the terms of the deals were not revealed.
Szwarz, 20, was drafted by the Coyotes in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
The 6-foot, 192 pound wing played 65 games in the Ontario Hockey League last season as a member of the Saginaw Spirit.
As team captain, Szwarz ranked second on the team in points and assists. He was tied for second in goals scored and led the team with a plus 33 goal differential while he was on the ice.
One round after taking Szwarz in the NHL Entry Draft, the Coyotes selected Domingue, the Mont St. Hilaire native.
The 19-year-old goalie spent last season as a member of the Quebec Remparts, a team in the Quebec Major Hockey League.
In Domingue’s 57 games, he posted a 37-12-3 record with two shutouts. The young goaltender gave up 2.65 goals per game and had a .898 save percentage.
Domingue led all QMJHL goaltenders in wins, ranked sixth in average goals allowed and ninth in save percentage.
