The Arizona Coyotes signed forward Ben McCartney to a three-year entry-level contract on Thursday.

“We are very pleased to sign Ben to an entry-level contract,” said general manager Bill Armstrong in the team’s press release.

“Ben had a great junior career and played well for the Roadrunners last season. We look forward to watching him continue to develop next year in Tucson.”

The Coyotes’ seventh-round pick played for both the Roadrunners (AHL) and the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL) last season.

He had 13 goals, 24 assists and 37 points with the Wheat Kings before moving to Tucson.

McCartney played only four games with the Roadrunners and finished with one goal, four assists and five points.

He was drafted by Arizona as the 204th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.
