Chipchura signs 1-year deal with Phoenix

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes have signed restricted free agent forward Kyle Chipchura to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Chipchura played 53 games for the Coyotes last season, scoring three goals with 13 assists. He also played 15 playoff games as Phoenix made an improbable run to the Western Conference finals, scoring a goal with three assists.

The 26-year-old Chipchura has played five seasons in the NHL with Montreal, Anaheim and Phoenix, with 13 goals and 31 assists.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
