Arizona Coyotes‘ undrafted 3rd year defenseman Dakota Mermis(43) was a late-ish cut from training camp and although not the biggest point getter is off to a good star with affiliate Tuscon Roadrunners scoring a goal and 2 assists in 10 AHL games.

His strong start has earned him a first NHL recall

In two games he’s played around 10 minutes in each appearance with 2 shots, 1 hit, 2 breakups, and 1 giveaway in a loss and a shootout win.

The almost unassuming 6′ 196 lbs. blue liner has a perchance for winning titles with his first coming in American junior hockey with Green Bay Gamblers, when he netted the 2012 USHL Clark Cup, then the next season after leaving a short stint at University Of Denver, he joined London Knights and won the 2013 OHL Championship then did it again in 2015 with Oshawa Generals.

He would also grab the 2015 Memorial Cup.

At 23-years old he may not be on a big league squad that’s going to excel any time soon, but if he has to spend anymore time in the minors could see his name on another trophy sooner than later.

He is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the current campaign.
