Brendan Shinnimin(16) Portland Pirates

Brendan Shinnimin

Phoenix Coyotes‘ 2nd year undrafted center Brendan Shinnimin(16) is sort of quietly putting up decent scoring numbers for minor league affiliate Portland Pirates.

Through 24 AHL games he has 4 goals and 8 assists. In his rookie season he scored a handy 12 tallies and added 21 helpers in 74 contests.  He was also an unfortunate -18 plus/minus.

At 5’10” 185 lbs., he’s not necessarily the biggest looking guy out there but has shown the ability to connect with decent consistency on the score sheet.

In his final WHL campaign with Tri-City Americans, he put up a league high 134 points (58 goals, 76 assists).

He finished his junior hockey career scoring 131 goals and 201 assists in 267 games with a monstrous +85 rating.

The 22-year old is signed to a three-year entry level deal through 2015.

If he can stay active on the score sheet, he’s bound to earn himself an NHL recall.
