Coyotes ink Turris to multi-year deal

The Phoenix Coyotes signed forward Kyle year contract Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the pact is dependent upon Turris passing a physical.

"We are pleased to agree to terms with Kyle on a multi-year contract," said Coyotes GM Don Maloney. "Kyle is a top, young player who will make us a better team. We look forward to having him in our lineup so he can contribute to our team."

The 22-year-old native of suburban Vancouver has totaled 19 goals and 46 points in 131 games over the past three seasons, all with Phoenix. However, he had yet to play this year after his initial three-year, entry-level contract expired, making him a restricted free agent.

"I am happy to sign with Phoenix and start playing," said Turris. "It's been a long process, but now I am focused on playing and helping the team win."
