The Arizona Coyotes sent backup goalie Marek Langhamer back down to the American Hockey League team Springfield on Sunday.
The 21-year-old Czech has played 13 games for the Springfield Falcons this season, compiling a 6-6-1 record with a 3.52 GAA. He was promoted a week earlier but did not appear in a game. He was drafted in the 7th round by Arizona in 2012. When he was called up, RotoWire gave this assessment of his numbers: “He’s clearly not ready for anything more than a cup of coffee.”
Langhamer became expendable when starting goalie Mike Smith returned Saturday following a 40-game absence and played well in a 4-0 shutout of the Edmonton Oilers. Louis Domingue serves as his backup.
