Sullivan signs one-year deal with Coyotes
Steve Sullivan signs one-year deal with Phoenix Coyotes

Steve Sullivan has agreed to a one-year contract with the Phoenix Coyotes. The deal is reportedly worth $1.85 million plus bonuses, according to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com and TSN.

Sullivan, who turns 38 years old Friday, had 17 goals and 48 points for Pittsburgh this past season after signing a one-year deal to play with the Penguins. There had been reports the Penguins had interest in retaining Sullivan, but they were still waiting for Zach Parise to make his decision.

"We had to move on at some point. Can't wait forever," Stephen Bartlett, Sullivan's agent, told Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Sullivan has 283 goals and 730 points in 969 career NHL games. He'll help replace Ray Whitney, who left Phoenix for the Dallas Stars earlier this week.

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
