Portland, Ore. – As National Hockey League clubs scrambled to get their protected lists together ahead of Wednesday’s NHL Expansion Draft for the Seattle Kraken, at least one former Winterhawk found himself on the move.
Goaltender Adin Hill, who played in Portland from 2013-2016, was dealt from the Arizona Coyotes to the San Jose Sharks Saturday morning, giving him a change in scenery before potentially becoming a candidate for the newest NHL franchise.
The 6-foot-6 native of Comox, British Columbia played 115 games in the Rose City over the course of three seasons before being drafted in the third round (#76 overall) by the Coyotes in 2015. Hill ranks second all-time in Winterhawks franchise save percentage (SV%) with .922 and third in goals-against-average (GAA) with a 2.72.
During the 2020-21 NHL season, Hill went 9-9-1 with a 2.74 goals against average (GAA) and a .913 save percentage (SV%) in 19 appearances with the Arizona. More recently, he won a gold medal at the 2021 IIHF World Championships with Team Canada. He appeared in three games for his country over the two-week stretch, posting a 1-1-0 record with a .909 save percentage in net.
The Portland Winterhawks begin their 46th season of play on October 1 and will host Seattle on October 2 for the team’s home opener.
