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.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
