GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes signed Kevin Porter, winner of the Hobey Baker Award as the nation's top college hockey player, on Monday.
Porter, 22, completed his senior season at Michigan this year and was second in NCAA Division I in scoring with 33 goals and 33 assists in 43 games. The Wolverines' captain finished his college career with 85 goals and 98 assists.
He was selected by Phoenix in the fourth round of the 2004 entry draft, the 119th selection overall. He will report to the San Antonio Rampage, the Coyotes' affiliate in the American Hockey League.
San Antonio is playing the Toronto Marlies in the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs.
Porter scored an NCAA record four goals in Michigan's 5-1 victory over Niagara in the East Region semifinals this year. He also had a goal and assists in the team's 2-0 victory over Clarkson that gave Michigan a berth in the Frozen Four.
Porter was captain of Team USA at the 2006 world junior championships.
