GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes re-signed forward Bill Thomas and goaltender David LeNeveu to one-year contracts Friday and signed free-agent forward Tomas Survoy to a one-year pact.

Thomas was signed as a free agent out of the University of Nebraska-Omaha in March 2006 and had one goal and two assists in nine games that season for the Coyotes.

LeNeveu, 24, was a second-round draft pick of Phoenix out of Cornell, where he went 39-5-2 in two seasons. In 21 NHL games the past two seasons, LeNeveu has a 5-9-2 record and 3.38 goals-against average. He was 2-1 with a 3.86 GAA in six games for Phoenix last season in a backup role.

Survoy, a 25-year-old Slovakian, played last season for Lulea HF of the Swedish Elite League and had 23 goals and 32 assists in 55 games.

He was a fourth-round draft pick of Pittsburgh in 2001 and had 27 goals and 32 assists for the Penguins over parts of four seasons through 2006.
