NHL.com reports that the Arizona Coyotes have acquired forward Cory Schneider from the Calgary Flames for a conditional second round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
The 21-year-old forward, who played in six games for the Flames this season, is expected to begin training camp with the team at Arizona’s Scottsdale SkyDome.
Schneider will report to the Coyotes’ training camp facility on a professional tryout contract and can be claimed by the team upon his arrival.
Schneiders career is set to begin with the Coyotes on Friday, October 23, when they host the Los Angeles Kings in the opening round of the 2018-19 NHL Playoffs.
He was a first-round pick by the Coyotes in the 2017 NHL Entry Tournament.
Schnider, who is originally from Sweden, is one of the youngest prospects in the NHL and has represented Sweden at the U-18, U-20, and U-21 levels.
The 6-foot-3, 192-pound native of Bergen, Norway played in 68 games for Sweden’s National Team Development Program in the 2014-15 season and recorded 15 points (7g, 7a) in 15 games.
