GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes say they've signed free-agent center Andy Miele to an entry-level contract.

Terms were not announced Saturday.

Miele (MEE-LEE) led the NCAA in scoring this season as a senior at Miami of Ohio with 24 goals and 47 assists in just 39 games. He's one of three finalists for the Hobey Baker Award as college hockey's top player.

The 22-year-old Miele is expected to join the Coyotes for practice Monday morning at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
