Coyotes re-sign defenseman Summers

The Phoenix Coyotes announced Wednesday that defenseman Chris Summers has accepted his qualifying offer and agreed to a one-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Summers played 21 games for the Coyotes last season, recording three assists. He also played 28 games with the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League.

Summers, 24, was chosen by the Coyotes in the first round (No. 29) of the 2006 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
