Playing career

Porter was drafted 119th overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Porter spent the next four years in the Collegiate system with the University of Michigan. In the 2007–08 season, his last year with the Wolverines, Porter won the Hobey Baker Award.[1]

Shortly after, on April 14, 2008, Porter signed an entry level contract with the Coyotes.[2] He then joined the Coyotes affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, for their play-off run.

In the 2008–09 season, Porter made the Coyotes opening season roster and made his NHL debut in a 3–1 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on October 11, 2008, picking up an assist, his first NHL point.[3] Porter scored his first career NHL goal on October 30, 2008, in a 4–1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.[4]

Porter was assigned to the Rampage to start the 2009–10 season. He was recalled by the Coyotes on numerous occasions and played in 4 games. On March 3, 2010, Porter was traded by the Coyotes, along with Peter Mueller, to the Colorado Avalanche for forward Wojtek Wolski.[5] After skating in four games with Avalanche affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters, Porter received his first recall to Colorado on March 11, 2010,[6] where he made his Avalanche debut in a 3-0 victory over the Florida Panthers.[7]
