The Arizona Coyotes have sent Brandon Gormley to the minors.
Gormley had a tough training camp as he apparently put too much pressure on himself to crack the lineup and as a result, he struggled throughout. The Coyotes first pick and 13th overall in the 2010 Draft has a lot of offensive upside and should see some action in the NHL this season."Trying to play perfect hockey, mistake-free hockey, which resulted in hesitant, slow-playing hockey," GM Don Maloney said of Gormley's play. Expect to see him back with the first injury on the Coyotes blueline. Oct 4 - 5:17 AM

Brandon Gormley came into rookie camp in the best shape of anyone.

The 13th overall pick in the 2010 draft spent his first full professional season in 2012-13 with the Portland Pirates of the AHL where he had five goals and 29 points in 68 games with a minus-seven rating. He decided to spend the off-season training with the Coyotes strength and conditioning coordinator Tommy Powers and it obviously paid off. "It's a sacrifice, obviously," Gormley said. "Guys want to be home and enjoying the down time in the summer time, but we got right to work and it was an unbelievable summer for me. I needed to do it. (Saturday) in the testing and on the ice you're reaping the benefits now. It's a tough summer, and he put me through the paces. But like I said, I needed to do it and it was a good summer for me." GM Don Maloney expects Gormley to be playing with the Coyotes at some point this season. He is still only 21 so do not give up on him.

The 19 year old was very eager to show the organization how much he has improved since being drafted. Gormley recently signed an entry level contract with the Coyotes and is expected to start with San Antonio of the AHL.

First round selection Brandon Gormley suffered a knee injury and will not play for Team Canada at the upcoming World Junior Championships in Buffalo.

Gormley was drafted 13th overall by the Phoenix Coyotes but was thought to be a top-six pick before sliding down the draft. He will be out for four-six weeks and is upset that he will not be able to play for Canada. Coyotes GM Don Maloney thinks that Gormley has a chance to make the team out of training camp next season. "He'll make a good run next year for a roster spot," Maloney said. "Time will tell. . . . If we've learning anything, we've learned not to force the young players here. But his type of game translates to the NHL." He is worth selecting in keeper leagues at this time.
