Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - The Phoenix Coyotes have signed center Mike Comrie to a two-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not
disclosed, but the Arizona Republic reported it to be worth $4 million.
Comrie was acquired by the Coyotes last February 9 in a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers. He played in a combined 49 games, finishing with 12 goals
and 12 assists for 24 points.
In 28 games with Phoenix, he posted eight goals and seven assists.
"We have every reason to believe that Mike Comrie is going to be an integral part of our hockey club in the years to come," said Coyotes general
manager Mike Barnett. "He is highly skilled, creative and motivated. Entering his fifth NHL season at the age of only 23, Mike's offensive style will
undoubtedly become very popular with our fans."
Comrie spent the first three years of his career with the Edmonton Oilers. His best season came in 2001-02 when he led Edmonton with 33 goals and tied
for the team lead with 60 points.
In 241 NHL games, the Edmonton native has 73 goals and 84 assists for 157 points.
