GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes signed free agents Todd Fedoruk and Kurt Sauer on Tuesday along with first-round draft picks Mikkel Boedker and Viktor Tikhonov.
Fedoruk, a 29-year-old left wing, was signed to a three-year deal while Sauer, a 27-year-old defenseman, got a four-year deal, said Coyotes general manager Don Maloney, who did not divulge financial terms.
Maloney said Boedker and Tikhonov - both right wingers - were signed to entry-level contracts.
Fedoruk had a career-high six goals last season when he played for the Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild. He also had seven assists and 139 penalty minutes in a combined 69 games.
Sauer's signing filled a gap created when the Coyotes sent defensemen Keith Ballard and Nick Boynton to the Florida Panthers last month in a draft-day trade for center Olli Jokinen.
Sauer had one goal and five assists last season for the Colorado Avalanche.
Boedker, 18, was taken by Phoenix at No. 18 overall in the June 20 draft. He had 29 goals and 44 assists in 69 games last season for the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.
Tikhonov, the 20-year-old grandson of former Soviet Red Army coach Viktor Tikhonov, had seven goals and five assists last season for Cherepovets of the Russian league.
