Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - The Phoenix Coyotes have re-signed forward Mike Johnson to a three-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Johnson was limited to just 11 games last year for Phoenix and tallied one goal and nine assists for 10 points. He missed the final 71 contests of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

"Mike brings many positives to our roster each night," said general manager Michael Barnett. "He has elite speed, he kills penalties, he has power play experience. He can pretty well be put in any situation for you and get the job done. We missed his contribution greatly last year."

The 29-year-old Johnson was acquired by the Coyotes on March 5, 2001 from the Tampa Bay Lightning along with Paul Mara, Ruslan Zainullin and a second-round choice in the 2001 Entry Draft in exchange for Nikolai Khabibulin and Stan Neckar.

In 480 career NHL games with Toronto, Tampa Bay and Phoenix, Johnson has totaled 100 goals and 185 assists.
