GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Phoenix Coyotes currently own the 12th overall draft selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, which takes place this Sunday, June 30 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., and will be televised on the NBC Sports Network beginning at 12 p.m. P.S.T.

The Coyotes hold seven picks (tied for the fourth-most) in the seven-round draft, including two in the third round. At last year’s draft in Pittsburgh, Phoenix selected forward Henrik Samuelsson with the 27th overall pick in the first round.
