The Arizona Coyotes have signed forward Blake Speers to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Sunday.

Terms of the contract have yet to be disclosed.

Speers posted four goals, nine points and 20 penalty minutes in 32 games with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners this season. The 23-year-old also played 10 games for the AHL’s Binghamton Devils, where he recorded one assist and four penalty minutes.

In 147 career AHL games, Speers has 19 goals and 37 points, plus he has appeared in three NHL games with the New Jersey Devils. He also won a silver medal at the 2016-17 World Junior Championships with Team Canada.

The Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., native was acquired by Arizona in the Taylor Hall deal last December.

Speers was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the third round of the 2015 NHL Draft at 67th overall.
