Lawson Crouse signed a three-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday. Financial terms were not released.
The 22-year-old forward was a restricted free agent. He had NHL career highs in goals (11), assists (14) and points (25) in 81 games last season.
"We are very pleased to sign Lawson to a multiyear contract," Coyotes general manager John Chayka said. "He had a very good season last year and really established himself as an NHL power forward. We look forward to having him in our lineup."
Selected by the Florida Panthers with the No. 11 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, Crouse has 38 points (17 goals, 21 assists) in 164 games, all with the Coyotes. He was traded to Arizona by Florida with forward Dave Bolland on Aug. 25, 2016 for a conditional third-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft and a conditional second-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft.
