PORTLAND — The parent Phoenix Coyotes moved Friday to fill the holes on the roster created by the departure of five players from the Portland Pirates for the NHL team’s training camp.

Former Atlanta Thrasher Boris Valabik, a 6-7, 245-pound defenseman who has appeared in 29 games with Brno Kometa of the Czech league this season, signed an AHL contract with the Pirates.
Forwards Evan Bloodoff and Scott Arnold were called up from the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators in Georgia.

Defensemen Russ Sinkewich, who has played for the Gladiators and the ECHL’s Alaska Aces this season, and Bryce Lampman, a former New York Ranger who had been playing for the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL, were signed to professional tryout contracts.
