Josh Doan, the promising young hockey player who was drafted by the Arizona Coyotes in the second round (37th overall) of the 2021 draft, has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the team. Although the terms of the deal have not been disclosed, it's clear that the Coyotes are excited about Doan's potential.

Doan will be starting his professional career with the Tucson Roadrunners, where he'll be making his debut on Friday against the Calgary Wranglers. This is an exciting opportunity for the young player to showcase his skills and prove himself on the ice.

General manager Bill Armstrong made the following statement:

"Josh has played very well for ASU the past two seasons and has earned this deal. We look forward to continuing to watch his development the remainder of this season in Tucson."

At just 21 years old, Josh Doan has already accomplished an impressive amount in his hockey career. In his most recent season with Arizona State, he recorded an impressive 16 goals, 22 assists, and 38 points, along with 18 penalty minutes. The previous year, during his freshman season, he set a school record for most points and assists by a freshman, registering an impressive 12 goals, 25 assists, and 37 points, along with 54 penalty minutes. It's no surprise that Doan was named captain of the Arizona State team.

Prior to joining Arizona State, Doan played for the Chicago Steel for two years, where he contributed significantly to the team's success. He registered an impressive 36 goals, 48 assists, and 84 points in 53 games, while also accumulating 53 penalty minutes. Doan's hard work and talent helped the team win the Clark Cup, cementing his status as a rising star in the hockey world.

Josh Doan about to walk in his father's footsteps?

The hockey world knows Josh Doan not only as a rising star in his own right but also as the son of Arizona legend Shane Doan.

Shane Doan played in the NHL from 1995 to 2017 and is widely considered one of the best players in Coyotes history. He led the team in scoring for an impressive eight seasons in a row, from 2003 to 2011, and was a beloved figure both on and off the ice.

Now, Doan senior is chief hockey development officer for the Coyotes. Something tells me he'll be working closely with his son in the next months.
