GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Arizona Coyotes selected forward Brendan Perlini from Niagara of the Ontario Hockey League in the first round (12th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa., on Friday.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Perlini registered 34-37-71 in 58 games with Niagara this season. He led the IceDogs in goals and finished second on the team in scoring. He was also named the most sportsmanlike IceDog in 2013-14.

The 18-year-old native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. recorded 3-1-4 in seven games and won a bronze medal with Canada at the 2014 U-18 World Championship. Perlini ranked eighth among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting.

Perlini wears No. 11 as a tribute to his father, Fred, who played eight games with the Toronto Maple Leafs after being drafted 158th overall in the 1980 NHL Draft.
