Tucson Roadrunners

Coyotes assign Christian Dvorak to Roadrunners

In preparation for Dylan Strome’s return to the lineup, Coyotes’ GM John Chayka has sent 20-year-old center Christian Dvorak down to Tucson. He has three assists in seven NHL games this season.

The move provides the Roadrunners with an extremely talented player; last season Dvorak finished second in OHL scoring (which is considered by many to be the best junior league in the world) with 52 Goals, 69 assists, and 121 points in just 59 games. His demotion will give him the ice time he needs to develop and will provide Roadrunner fans with another exciting player.

Expect to see Dvorak on the Roadrunners’ top line tomorrow against Texas. The puck drops at 7:05 PM at Tucson Arena.
