GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Coyotes signed goalie Adin Hill to a one-year, two-way contract Saturday.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
The 23-year-old Hill was 7-5 with a .901 save percentage, 2.76 goals-against average and one shutout in 13 games for Arizona last season. He was 16-19-2 with a .906 save percentage and a 2.61 GAA in 36 games for the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League.
“We are pleased to get Adin signed,” general manager John Chayka said. “He’s a big, talented goaltender who has improved each season. We look forward to watching his development this year.”
Arizona Coyotes top defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson was bitten on the hand by his family dog in May but is expected to be fine for the beginning of the season.
According to reports, the 28-year-old was briefly hospitalized and received four stitches. The dog was euthanized because it had been involved in similar incidents in the past.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m fine. This happened earlier in the summer, and sadly we had to put our dog down. I got four stitches that are healing up nicely. Thanks @sportexpressen for giving me something to do today.

Ekman-Larsson had 14 goals and 44 points for the Coyotes last season, his ninth in the desert.
The Coyotes traded for winger Phil Kessel in the offseason, hoping to improve their anemic offense and propel the team to the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Arizona fell just four points shy of the final wild-card spot last season.
