Originally drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Mayo then played with the Edmonton Oil Kings in the WHL. He has since played in the AHL for both the Springfield Falcons as well as a 25 game stint in the ECHL with the Rapid City Rush.
In 163 regular season games in the AHL, Mayo is 8-18-26. In 7 playoff games with the Tucson Roadrunners in 2018 he was 0-0-0. And, in his 25 games in the ECHL he was 1-15-16.
Mayo’s spot with the franchise is tough to predict. He has a lot of competition as the Coyotes have some solid defensemen in their pipeline. But with Kyle Capobianco nearing a jump to the NHL, there is a good chance that Mayo will see his role increase in Tucson in the coming years.
