The Phoenix Coyotes have recalled Rob Klinkhammer from the AHL, sent defenseman David Rundblad to the minors and signed forward Darian Dziurzynski (z'yuhr-ZIHN-skee) to a two-year entry level contract.
General manager Don Maloney announced the moves Friday. The 21-year-old Dziurzynski has five goals in 40 games this season for the AHL's Portland Pirates.
He was a fifth-round draft pick of Phoenix in 2011 and had 27 goals in 61 games last season with Brandon of the WHL. Klinkhammer has a team-leading 14 goals for Portland in 53 games and ranks 10th in the AHL with 44 points.
The 26-year-old Klinkhammer was signed by the Coyotes as a free agent after NHL stops in Chicago and Ottawa. Rundblad has played in eight games for Phoenix and 34 for Portland this season.
