The Arizona Coyotes and Liam Kirk made some history at the NHL draft Saturday when the team selected the forward with the 189th overall pick.

Kirk is the first England-born player who also trained there to be selected by an NHL team.

The 18-year-old from Rotherham spent the last two seasons with the Sheffield Steelers of the EIHL.

The Coyotes have another England-born player, Brendan Perlini, on their NHL roster.
