The Arizona Coyotes announced the signing of forward Liam O’Brien to a two-year contract extension on Sunday, as first reported by Arizona Sports‘ John Gambadoro.

O’Brien has scored two goals and added one assist in 37 games played with Arizona this season. He also leads the NHL in penalty minutes with 106.

“We are very pleased to sign Liam to a two-year contract extension,” said general manager Bill Armstrong in a press release.

“Liam is a hard-working player with great character who is always there to support his teammates. He has provided our team with some added toughness and is very deserving of this contract.”

The forward is in his fifth season in the NHL after starting his career with the Washington Capitals in 2014 when he went undrafted.

The 27-year-old has set career highs for games played in a season, goals, penalty minutes, shots and tied his points total.

He also ranks second on the team with 131 hits.

The contract extension comes one day after teammate Travis Boyd was also etched to a two-year extension with Arizona.
