Gormley to make NHL debut for Coyotes


Brandon Gormley, the 13th overall pick in the 2010 draft, will make his NHL debut tonight for the Phoenix Coyotes in Tampa Bay, per Sarah McLellan of azcentral sports.

Gormley was called up Friday from AHL Portland. The 22-year-old defenseman has 63 points in 120 AHL games. He was a healthy scratch in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Capitals.

Derek Morris will apparently come out of the lineup to make way for Gormley.

Gormley is the lowest pick of the 2010 draft who has yet to play an NHL game.
