Christopher C Summers (born February 5, 1988 in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins organization of the National Hockey League.
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. He was then assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage on an amateur try out contract for the remainder of the season.
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).
On April 20, 2016, Summers was recalled by the New York Rangers from the team's AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack.
On July 1, 2017, Summers left the Rangers as a free agent and signed a two-year, two-way $650,000 contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
