History

2011-12: Adin Hill played for the CBHA Rangers minor midget AAA team, posting a 3.37 goals against and .927 save percentage. 

2012-13: Hill attended training camp with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks before returning to Calgary to play for the Calgary Buffaloes midget AAA team in the Alberta Midget Hockey League. Sharing the goaltending duties with Keelan Williams for the Buffaloes, he was 9-6-2 with a 3.04 goals against and .907 save percentage. Hill joined the Brooks Bandits junior A team for the RBC Cup but did not appear in any games. 

2013-14: Hill made his WHL debut with Portland in a January 8th game against Everett and re-joined the Winterhawks in March, appearing in three late season games. He spent the bulk of the season with the Calgary Canucks in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Hill was 4-0 with Portland and had a 1.65 goals against and .934 save percentage. He appeared in 19 games for the AJHL’s Canucks as a backup to 19-year-old Colin Cooper. Hill was 2-14-1 and had a 3.92 goals against and .897 save percentage. 

2014-15: Hill seized the starter’s role for Portland as a WHL rookie. In 46 regular season games he was 31-11-1 with 2 shutouts and had a 2.81 goals against and .921 save percentage. The Winterhawks finished second in the U.S. Division and reached the Western Conference finals, falling to Memorial Cup-bound Kelowna. Hill was 10-7 in 17 playoff games, recording 1 shutout and finishing with a 2.96 goals against and .911 save percentage. He was ranked fourth amongst North American goaltenders in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Arizona in the third round (76th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

Talent Analysis

Hill was given the starting role for the first time last year, employing a blocking style game in net by using every inch of his 6’4” frame. He will return to Portland, where he will be afforded the opportunity to work on his rebound control and positioning.

Future
Clearly ahead of Marek Langhamer and Erik Kallgren on the prospect depth chart, Hill is the projected goalie of the future for the Coyotes. If he can improve his consistency, Hill has the ability to take over the starting job in Arizona one day.
