    Day 22 – Phoenix Coyotes

    Phoenix has a good, not great, group of prospects. Their best prospects consist of a very deep crop of defensemen with some decent forwards. While their defensive prospects look as though they could be key NHL players for years to come, they could really use some offensive flair in their system, which is sorely lacking with the departure of Kyle Turris and the graduation of Mikael Boedker. Only former NCAA free agent signee Andy Miele looks like an offensive playmaker for the club and draft pick Henrik Samuelsson, while having a lot of upside, still isn’t a guarantee to be a top line guy. Maybe some trades may be in the cards for the Coyotes who are flush in their own end.

    D - Connor Murphy (USA) Sarnia Sting

    6'3”, 192 lbs., 19 years old

    Connor Murphy is the son of former NHLer Gord Murphy. He is a strong and capable two-way defender who can be a physical brute as well. He definitely has an offensive upside and possesses excellent puck skills and a booming slapshot. 
Unfortunately, he has dealt with injuries the past three seasons, limiting the amount of games he has played. The injuries are a cause for concern, considering he has been having back problems and he is a defenseman. 
If he can fill out his 6’3” frame and stay healthy, he can be a dynamic defender for the Coyotes.

    Projection: Top four defenceman

    Potential Upside: 25-35 points
ETA: 2014-2015

    C - Andy Miele (USA) Portland Pirates
5'8”, 174 lbs., 24 years old

    Miele is a small, late-blooming forward with some offensive flair. He has great skating and puck skills and works hard in the offensive zone to create scoring chances. While has been putting up some very good numbers in various leagues the past few years, it should be noted that he has done so at an older age ...This makes his numbers not as impressive as they otherwise would be. 
His biggest issue is, of course, his size. He is small and needs to get stronger if he wishes to succeed in the NHL. If he can do that, then he could be an effective forward. 

    Projection: Top six forward

    Potential Upside: 40-55 points (Jiri Hudler)

    ETA: 2012-2013
