Spirit captain signs with Phoenix

The Saginaw Spirit have announced that team captain Jordan Szwarz has signed an entry level contract with the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League.

As per club policy, terms of the deal were not announced.

Szwarz completed his fourth campaign as a member of the Spirit after being the team’s second round pick in the 2007 OHL Priority Selection, posting 27-39-66 totals in 65 games.

The Burlington, Ont., native was the Coyotes' fourth round selection (97th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Szwarz is among the franchise leaders in most significant team marks as he ranks second in all time regular season games played, and third in points after becoming just the fourth player in Spirit history to record 200 or more points in a career this past season.
