***Coyotes future players, Brady Griffin and Matt Loundagin will be available for comment and media interviews at this event.


Brady Griffin—A talented product of Casper Hockey who primarily plays forward. His deceptive speed and scoring touch led the Casper Oilers to back-to-back High School state championships and an international title. Passing up junior offers in 2013, Brady chose one more season with the Oilers in hopes that a Junior team would land in Casper. The Coyotes have filled that void.

Matt Loundigan— A 6’3” defenseman, Loundagin’s long reach and powerful stride create havoc into opponents trying to get around him. In only his Junior year of high school Matt’s leadership and skill development make him an excellent junior hockey prospect.
