After acquiring him a week ago via trade, the Arizona Coyotes signed defenseman Conor Timmins to a two-year deal on Friday.

The organization sent goaltender Darcy Kuemper to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Timmins, a 2022 first round pick and a conditional third round pick in 2024.

“We are very pleased to sign Conor to a two-year contract,” said Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong in a statement following the signing. “Conor is a talented young defenseman and we look forward to having him on our blueline this season.”

The Ontario native was drafted No. 32 overall by the Avalanche in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Timmins, 22, played in 31 regular season games for Colorado in 2020-21, as well as seeing action in 10 playoff games. He registered seven points last season, all being assists.

In 2018, he was a member on Team Canada for the IIHF World Junior Championships, where he helped the team win gold after registering five points in seven games.

The team announced another move on Friday, signing forward Bokondji Imama to a one-year, two-way deal.

In 2020-21, Imama registered 9-5-14 with 56 penalty minutes in 31 games with the AHL’s Ontario Reign.

In 153 career games with the Reign, Imama tallied 35 points and spent 320 minutes in the penalty box.

Imama was originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning No. 180 overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

As per club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
