Playing career[edit | edit source]

Hill played bantam junior hockey with the Calgary Bisons before later developing at the midget level with the Calgary Buffaloes in the Alberta Midget Hockey League. He spent the duration of the 2013–14 season with the Calgary Canucks in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before ending the season playing four games of major junior hockey with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.

He spent the entirety of the 2014–15 season with the Winterhawks, where he had a (31-11-1) record and a league-best .921 save percentage. At season's end, he was selected in the third round, 76th overall, by the Arizona Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

On April 6, 2016, the Coyotes signed Hill to a three-year, entry-level contract.[1] He played for two of the Coyotes' affiliates during the 2016-17 season (the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League (AHL) and the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL).

Hill began the 2017–18 season with the Roadrunners. However, he was recalled by the Coyotes on October 16, 2017.[2] On October 17, he made his NHL debut, stopping 31 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Dallas Stars. The debut also made him the first goaltender selected in the 2015 draft to appear in an NHL game.[3][4] On March 13, 2018, Hill recorded his first career win in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Los Angeles Kings.[5] He finished the season with four appearances for the club.

Hill once again began the 2018-19 season with the Roadrunners. He was recalled by the Coyotes on November 24.[6] Hill was named the NHL Second Star of the week for the week of December 3 after posting a 3-0-0 record.[7]

On August 3, 2019, the Coyotes re-signed Hill to a one-year, two-way contract extension.[8] He made 13 appearances during the 2019-20 season, going (2-4-3).

On September 15, 2020, Hill signed a one-year extension with the Coyotes.[9]
