Brandon Gormley has accepted his one-year, two-way qualifying offer with the Arizona Coyotes.
Gormley had two goals and four points in 27 games with Arizona in 2014-15. At the age of 23, he still has the potential to develop into a defenseman that puts up sufficient offensive numbers to make him worth owning in standard leagues. However, at this point we recommend taking a wait-and-see approach with him rather than take a chance on drafting him before training camp. Jul 31 - 10:16 AM

Brandon Gormley is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Vancouver.

The 23-year-old was Arizona's first round pick in 2010 (13th overall). He has two goals and three points in 21 games this season. His fantasy upside is extremely limited for the rest of the year.

Brandon Gormley and BJ Crombeen will continue to sit as the Coyotes take on the Rangers on Saturday night.

Brandon Gormley and BJ Crombeen will be scratched against the Sharks on Friday night.

The Coyotes had a roster spot available for Gormley after they put Mikkel Boedker on the IR with an upper-body problem. Gormley isn't guaranteed to return on Tuesday though, despite this move. "We'll see where he gets in the morning," coach Dave Tippett said.
