Coyotes re-sign Scottie Upshall to one-year deal

Wednesday, 07.29.2009 / 5:42 PM / 2009 NHL Offseason News
Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today that the Coyotes have re-signed left wing Scottie Upshall to a one-year contract. As per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"We are excited to have signed Scottie Upshall to a new contract," said Maloney. "He performed exceptionally well for us last season after we acquired him from Philadelphia and we expect him to be an important player for us next season."

Upshall, 25, set new career-highs in goals (15), assists (19), points (34) and games played (74) last season. He began the season with Philadelphia before being traded to the Coyotes on March 4, 2009 along with a 2nd round draft choice in the 2011 Entry Draft in exchange for Daniel Carcillo. In 19 games with Phoenix, Upshall registered 8-5-13 and 26 PIM to rank 3rd on the Coyotes in scoring during that span. Upshall also earned a silver medal while representing Canada at the 2009 World Championship in Switzerland.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
