Arizona Coyotes Select Brendan Perlini

Arizona Coyotes Select Brendan Perlini With the #12 Pick —

The results are in and what was expected to be wide open and interesting 1st round certainly was. The Arizona Coyotes got themselves a very good prospect at #12.  Like many others, I didn’t expect Brendan Perlini to be around at the #12 spot.  Winnipeg Hockey Talk had him ranked at #6.  TSN’s Craig Button had him at #11, ISS had him at #6, The Hockey Writers also had him at #11 so all in all I think the Arizona Coyotes did pretty well to get Perlini at #12.
