Even if Sean Burke ends up moving on to greener pastures, the Arizona Coyotes' love affair with large goalies continues, as they select 6' 3", 198 pound Adin Hill of the Portland Winterhawks with the 76th overall selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Adin Hill received the lion's share of starts with WHL Portland this past season. In 46 appearances, Hill went 31-11-1-0 with a .921 save percentage, a 2.81 goals against average, and two shutouts. Given the penchant for big numbers in the major-junior leagues, that's pretty good.

A native of Comox, British Columbia, Hill actually played bantam hockey with Coyotes first round selection Nick Merkley. He also played with Coyotes' 2013 6th round selection Brendan Burke while with the Winterhawks.

Adin Hill likely has at least one more season with the Winterhawks before turning pro. He will face competition in the Coyotes system with prospects like Mark Visentin and Louis Domingue. But should one of those two not pan out, Adin Hill is poised to be a goalie of the future for Arizona.
