Christopher C Summers (born February 5, 1988 in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the Hartford Wolf Pack organization of the American Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

A native of Milan, Michigan, graduating Milan High School in 2006, Summers was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round, 29th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Drafted from the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Summers was recruited to play collegiate hockey with the University of Michigan.

After his senior year in 2009–10, Summers signed a two-year entry level contract with the Coyotes on March 31, 2010.[1] He was then assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage on an amateur try out contract for the remainder of the season.

During the 2013–14 season, Summers scored his first NHL goal on March 15, 2014, against Joni Ortio of the Calgary Flames.

On March 1, 2015, Summers was included in a trade by the Coyotes to the New York Rangers along with defenseman Keith Yandle and a 2015 fourth round pick in exchange for defenseman John Moore, Anthony Duclair, and two draft picks (2016 first round and 2015 second round).[2]
