Arizona Coyotes re-sign Jordan Szwarz to a two-year contract

Christian Petersen

The young Arizona Coyotes forward who made a brief appearance with the team last season is back for another two years.

In addition to re-signing Brandon McMillan, the Arizona Coyotes announced today that they also re-signed Jordan Szwarz to a two-year, two-way contract. While the terms of the deal were undisclosed by the organization, we will update this story if numbers become available.

The 97th overall pick in 2009, Szwarz played four seasons with the Sagniaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League. The Burlington, Ontario native would spend two full seasons with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, Portland Pirates, before finally earning a call-up to the NHL in 2013-14.

Szwarz played 26 games with the Coyotes, recording three goals along the way. His last game with Arizona was Jan. 22, 2014, after which he was sent down to Portland for the duration of the year. He put up eight goals and six assists in 27 games with the Pirates.

Szwarz is among a crop of young forwards including Max Domi, Henrik Samuelsson, Lucas Lessio, and Tyler Gaudet that Dave Tippett and Don Maloney hope will be able to make the jump into full-time NHL players this season or next. Though his two-way contract will make it easier for the Coyotes to start him in Portland while they wait to see whether or not Domi is ready for the big-time, Szwarz is definitely a player to look out for come training camp.
