The Arizona Coyotes locked up one of their netminders for another season.
The team announced Tueday it has signed goaltender Adin Hill to a one-year, one-way contract.
Per TSN’s Pierre LeBrun, the deal is worth $800,000.
The terms of the agreement could signal a potential departure for one of the starting-caliber goalies on the team, Antti Raanta or Darcy Kuemper.
Hill played in 13 games last season for the Coyotes, going 2-4-3 with a 2.62 goals against average and a .918 save percentage.
The goalie also spent time with the Tucson Roadrunners, posting a 15-5-0 record. He posted a .918 save percentage with the AHL affiliate.
Over the last three seasons with the team (30 games), Hill has a 10-12-3 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.81 GAA.
Hill was originally drafted by Arizona in the third round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft with the 76th overall pick.
Hill did not log any ice time during the Coyotes playoff run last season, but was on the roster and replaced Antti Raanta on the bench during Game 2 of the qualifying round against the Nashville predators after the goalie was deemed unfit to play for the team.
