Coyotes avoid arbitration with Boedker, sign 1-year deal

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Coyotes have signed left wing Mikkel Boedker to a one-year, $3.75 million deal.

Boedker filed for salary arbitration on Sunday, but the sides were able to iron out a deal Tuesday before they went before a mediator.

The 25-year-old from Denmark has been one of Arizona's most creative scorers during seven seasons with the team.

Boedker had 14 goals and 14 assists in 45 games last season, which was cut short in January after he ruptured his spleen. He had 19 goals and 32 assists in 2013-14.

Boedker has 67 goals and 107 assists in 383 career NHL games.
