The Arizona Coyotes announced they have added winger Jiri Sekac on Saturday after he was waived by the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 23-year-old Sekac played in only six games for the Blackhawks after being dealt from the Anaheim Ducks in January. Chicago acquired Sekac in a deal that sent Ryan Garbutt to the Ducks, and he became expendable as the Hawks made a series of trades over the past three days.

The Kladno, Czech Republic, native tallied a goal and two assists in 22 games with Anaheim this season. He also had an assist Thursday for the Blackhawks.

Sekac has 10 goals and 17 assists in 97 career games for Montreal, Anaheim and Chicago.

He will join the Coyotes on Monday when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins.
