Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Adam Payerl
Adam Payerl was born on March 4, 1991 in Kitchener, Ontario. The undrafted centre played five seasons in the OHL with the Barrie Colts and the Belleville Bulls. In the OHL he would amass 60 goals, 143 points and 303 penalty minutes over his five seasons.

Despite not being drafted, his play in the OHL garnered NHL attention to the point that he was signed to an entry level contract by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2012. Payerl would spend parts of the next four seasons splitting time between the Penguinsí AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the ECHLís Wheeling Nailers before the Pittsburgh Penguins gave him a shot in the NHL. Payerl would make his NHL debut on April 6, 2014 in a 3-2 shootout victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

At the conclusion of his contract, the Penguins did not give him a qualifying offer making him a free agent. On September 29, 2015, the Nashville Predatorsí AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, gave Payerl a try out contract. After meeting their expectations they signed him to an AHL contract for the remainder of the season.
