UK Hockey: British player gets entry-level deal with Coyotes

LONDON (AP) The Arizona Coyotes and British forward Liam Kirk have agreed to terms on an entry-level contract three years after he became the first player born and trained in England to be drafted, his agent and Ice Hockey UK said Friday.

The 21-year-old Kirk was the joint top goalscorer at the recent world championship in Latvia, where he had seven goals in as many games for Britain.

"It has always been my dream to play in the NHL so to get this deal with the Coyotes is fantastic," Kirk said in governing body Ice Hockey UK's announcement. "I am a step closer to that dream and I will continue to push myself to reach the elite level."
