Chris Brown and Rob Klinkhammer to Join the Coyotes

Bruce Bennett

Forwards Chris Brown and Rob Klinkhammer have been recalled Friday by the Phoenix Coyotes from their American Hockey League affiliate the Portland Pirates.

Brown, a former University of Michigan Wolverine, opted out his senior year of college after signing a three-year entry level contract with the Phoenix Coyotes. While with the Wolverines, Brown scored 34 goals and had 80 points in 125 games. Playing his first year pro with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the Flower Mound, Texas native is known for his hard play and being a strong puck carrier. He racked up 18 gals and 11 assists so far this season for Portland.

Accompanying Brown is Rob Klinkhammer. Having originally gone un-drafted, the 26-year old winger made the jump from juniors to the pros signing contracts with both the Norfolk Admirals and the Rockford IceHogs before landing his first NHL contract with Chicago. After spending time in the Blackhawks and Senators' system, Klinkhammer joined the Pirates after signing as a free agent with the Coyotes. In his first season with the Coyotes' organization, Klinkhammer currently leads the Pirates in assists (30), points (44), third in goals (14) and holds the best plus/minus (18).

Both Klinkhammer and Brown were invited to the Coyotes abbreviated training camp this season but failed to make the roster.
