GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes signed Czech goalie Marek Langhamer to a three-year entry-level contract Thursday.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
