Former Union defenseman Greg Coburn was sent down to the AHL's Portland Pirates by the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday.

Coburn recently signed with the Coyotes and had been in their rookie camp. He earned an invitation to the Coyotes' training camp.

In 153 career games with the Dutchmen, Coburn collected 20 goals and 53 assists. He had signed with the Tampereen Ilves of the Finnish Elite League on June 3, but he wasn't happy there.
