GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes signed forward Jeff Halpern to a one-year contract Saturday. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
The 37-year-old Halpern had a goal and two assists in 46 games last season for the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens. In 13 NHL seasons with Washington, Dallas, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, Montreal and New York, he has 147 goals and 214 assists in 907 regular-season games.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
