The Arizona Coyotes have signed center Travis Boyd to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

“We are pleased to have Travis join the Coyotes,” Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong said in a press release. “He is a versatile, two-way center who can fill a lot of different roles for our club.”

Boyd, 27, spent last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs before being waived and claimed by the Vancouver Canucks.

In 39 games for those two teams, Boyd had five goals and five assists for 10 points. He spent the previous three seasons with the Washington Capitals, registering 31 points across 85 games.

The Coyotes have had a busy offseason, moving on from several players including goaltenders Darcy Kuemper and Antti Raanta, along with defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson.
