Phoenix Coyotes Resign Lee Stempniak to 2 Year Deal

While the Coyotes are expected to officially announce the deal tomorrow, word has gotten out to the Arizona Republic that the team has resigned Right Wing Lee Stempniak to a two year deal. Per team policy, they haven't announced any other terms of the deal, but reports have the team paying 1.75 million per year. 

Stempniak was solid for the team after the Coyotes traded Matt Jones, a 4th round and a 7th round draft pick. He scored 14 goals and added 4 assists in only 18 regular season games. He dried up in the playoffs though with only 2 assists in the series against Detroit. 

This is a great deal from the Coyotes side as it gives them an experienced winger that has played well, at least here. at only 1.75 a year he fits the budget and doesn't have to relearn the style of play. One thing that could hurt is production is the absence of Matthew Lombardi as those tow played well together, but expect Stempniak to to line up with Vernon Fiddler instead who along with Taylor Pyatt also showed some chemistry last year.
