Hanzal, Coyotes agree on two-year deal
E.J. Hradek, a co-host of NHL Live!, is reporting the Phoenix Coyotes and restricted free-agent forward Martin Hanzal have agreed on a two-year, $3.6 million contract.

According to Hradek, Hanzal will make $1.5 million this season and $2.1 million in 2011-12.

Hanzal, 23, had career-best totals of 22 assists and 33 points last season, and his 11 goals tied his previous NHL best. The 17th pick of the 2005 Entry Draft added 3 assists in seven playoff games. He also led the team with 175 hits, was third among forwards with 42 blocked shots and 29 takeaways, and won 50.6 percent of his faceoffs.

In three seasons, Hanzal has 30 goals and 99 points in 227 games, all with the Coyotes.







Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
