Phoenix Coyotes sign restricted free agent forward Kyle Chipchura to 1-year deal

GLENDALE, Ariz. - 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 only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
