“We are pleased to agree to terms with Kyle on a multi-year contract,” said 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.”

Last season, the 6-foot-1, 195 pound Turris appeared in 65 regular season games for the Coyotes, registering 11-14-25 and 16 penalty minutes (PIM). He established new career highs in games played (65), goals (11), assists (14) and points (25). Turris made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarter-Final against Detroit, scoring the first goal of the game. He appeared in all four games, recording 1-2-3 and was the only Coyote with a plus rating in the series.

“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.”

The 22-year-old native of New Westminster, British Columbia has spent his entire three-year professional career with Phoenix; appearing in 131 career regular season games with the Coyotes, registering 19-27-46 and 39 PIM. In four postseason contests, he has posted 1-2-3.

Turris was the Coyotes’ first choice in the first round (third overall) in the 2007 Entry Draft.
