GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes signed veteran defenseman Kurt Sauer to a four-year contract Tuesday, filling a gap created when they sent a pair of defenders to the Florida Panthers in a draft-day trade for Olli Jokinen.
Sauer, 27, played for the Colorado Avalanche last season, and had a goal and five assists in 54 regular-season games. He added a goal in 10 postseason contests with Colorado.
In six NHL seasons with Anaheim and the Avalanche, Sauer has four goals and 22 assists in 288 regular-season games.
