The Arizona Coyotes have re-signed restricted free agent Lawson Crouse to a three-year contract.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are very pleased to sign Lawson to a multi-year contract,” Coyotes general manager John Chayka said in a team statement. “He had a very good season last year and really established himself as an NHL power forward. We look forward to having him in our lineup.”

Crouse, 22, recorded career highs in goals (11), assists (14), points (25) and penalty minutes (67) in 81 games for the Coyotes last season. In 164 career NHL games, all with the Coyotes, the Mount Brydges, Ont., native has 17 goals and 38 points to go along with 122 PIMs.

Selected 11th overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2015 NHL Draft, Crouse was dealt to the Coyotes in August 2016 along with the contract of Dave Bolland.
