Perlini signs entry-level contract with Coyotes
The Arizona Coyotes have signed Brendan Perlini, their first-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Brendan Perlini, the Arizona Coyotes' first-round pick at the 2014 NHL Draft, has signed a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Friday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Coyotes selected Perlini with the 12th pick last month after he had 34 goals and 71 points in 58 games last season with the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League.

"We are very pleased to sign Brendan to an entry-level contract," Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. "Brendan is a strong skater with great size (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) and skill. He had an impressive prospect development camp and we look forward to watching his development."

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
