Steve Coates

Number: 17
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 172
Shoots: Right
Born: Jul 2, 1950

Steve Coates spent four seasons with the Michigan Tech Huskies before inking a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1973. Coates, a right winger, who was born in Toronto, Ontario on July 2 1950, never played a game for the Flyers. Instead he spent the majority of the next four seasons in the minors until a February 1977 trade sent him to the Detroit Red Wings.

With the Wings Coates got into five games and lit the lamp for his only NHL point. Coates returned to the minors for good following his brief trial in Motown.

The next three years were spent split between the Central Hockey League and the American Hockey League. Coates retired as a player following the 1979-80 season, a year he spent with the Syracuse Firebirds.

Coates returned to hockey in 1982, joining the Philadelphia Flyers broadcast team, where he remains to this day.
