The Phoenix Coyotes announced Thursday they have signed forward Rob Klinkhammer to a two-year contract. No financial terms were disclosed.

"We are very pleased to sign Rob to a multiyear contract," general manager Don Maloney said in a statement. "Rob is an excellent skater and hard-working forward who has earned a spot on our roster with his strong play last season. We look forward to having him on our team next year."

The 26-year-old native of Lethbridge, Alberta, signed with Phoenix as a free agent last summer and appeared in a career-high 22 games with the Coyotes this season, scoring five goals and finishing with 11 points and 10 penalty minutes. He ranked second on the team with a plus-7 rating and established a career-high five-game point streak from March 25 to April 2.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
