GLENDALE, AZ -

The Arizona Coyotes made a pair of trades on Thursday that will likely impact the Tucson Roadrunners.

The NHL club acquired forward Hudson Fasching from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for defenseman Brandon Hickey and forward Mike Sislo and dealt defenseman Kyle Wood to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Adam Helewka.

The 22-year-old Fasching registered 12-18-30 and 40 penalty minutes (PIM) in 69 games with the Rochester Americans (AHL) in 2017-18. He also skated in five games with the Sabres. 

The 6-foot-3, 204-pound native of Milwaukee, WI has recorded 1-2-3 and eight PIM in 22 career games with the Sabres and has collected 20-22-42 and 48 PIM in 106 career games with Rochester. 

Fasching was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round (118th overall) in the 2013 Entry Draft.

In 2017-18, Sislo registered 23-24-47 and 28 PIM in 68 games with the Tucson Roadrunners (AHL). Hickey tallied 6-8-14 and 45 PIM in 35 games with Boston University (NCAA) last season. 

The 22-year-old Helewka registered 9-29-38 and 29 penalty minutes (PIM) in 63 games with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL) last season. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound native of Burnaby, BC has recorded 23-45-68 and 57 PIM in 124 career games with the Barracuda.

Helewka was originally drafted by the Sharks in the fourth round (106th overall) in the 2015 Entry Draft.

Wood collected 17-45-62 and 34 PIM in 119 career games with the Tucson Roadrunners and Springfield Falcons (AHL).
