The Arizona Coyotes have completed re-signing their remaining restricted free agents after goaltender Adin Hill accepted his qualifying offer.

Hill is now signed up for another season in the desert and will play on a two-way contract, which will pay him in the region of $762,125 (based on a 105% qualifying offer, as detailed by CapFriendly).

The young goalie is expected to play out the 2019/20 season as the starter of the AHL's Tucson Roadrunners.

During the middle of the 2018/19 season, the Arizona Coyotes were without both Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper due to injuries and relied on Hill to get them through.

The 23-year-old Calgary native performed admirably and showed real flashes of quality during his brief spell with the club that have given fans a lot of hope for his future.

In relief of the Coyotes' primary tandem, Hill posted a 7-5-0 record with a 2.76 goals against average and a save percentage of .901.

His base stats were knocked largely due to the 7-1 thrashing the Coyotes experienced at the hands of the Calgary Flames, but the former third round pick impressed greatly before then.

Hill will now be working at helping to improve the Tucson Roadrunners next season, after seeing the team miss out on the playoffs.

Hill posted a 16-19-2 record with the Coyotes' AHL affiliates and will be determined to take his development to the next stage.

The club's best goalie prospect will have arbitration rights next summer when his contract expires and he could be looking to make the move up into the NHL a permanent one from 2020 onwards.
