Coyotes Sign Tyler Gaudet to One-Year Contract Extension

The Arizona Coyotes have signed restricted free agent forward Tyler Gaudet to a one-year, two-way contract extension, according to the team.

The deal will pay him $874,125 in the NHL and $70,000 in the AHL this upcoming season.

Gaudet skated in 14 games with the Coyotes last season, tallying three points with a minus-two rating.

Since turning pro in 2014, the Hamilton, Ontario native has logged 12 goals and 33 total points with Arizona’s AHL affiliate. He broke out as a prospect during the 2013-14 season with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the Ontario Hockey League, finishing the season with 61 points and a plus-25 rating in 65 games and eight points in nine playoff games.

Tyler Gaudet will likely start the 2016-17 season in the AHL, but he should be amongst the top call-up options for the team going forward. He has been a serviceable option for the ‘Yotes in the past due to his two-way reliability and physical play. The versatile winger stands at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds.

The Arizona Coyotes signed Gaudet as an undrafted free agent on November 4, 2013.
