The Arizona Coyotes signed No. 60 overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft Janis Moser to a three year entry-level contract, the team announced on Saturday.

Moser, a 21-year-old left-hand defenseman, played for EHC Biel-Bienne in his home country of Switzerland.

In 2020-21, he played 58 games for his club and country, tallying nine goals and 24 assists.

He was named to the NL Media Swiss All-Star team last season in the EHC and also played for team Switzerland in the 2021 IIHF World Championship.

In 2020, he was part of the Swiss team that made it to the quarterfinals of the World Junior Championship, where he had four assists in five games.

An offensive-minded defenseman, Moser was the No. 25-rated European skater according to EliteProspects.com among draft eligible prospects.

Per team policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.
