Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - The Phoenix Coyotes retained unrestricted
free agent forward Andy Miele Tuesday with a one-year contract.
"We are pleased to sign Andy to a one-year contract," Coyotes GM Don Maloney
said. "For the past two seasons, Andy has led the Pirates in scoring and
been a very effective player for us. We look forward to him continuing his
development this season."
The 25-year-old has appeared in eight games for Phoenix over the last two
seasons without registering a point, but he has racked up 35 goals and 107
points over 139 contests for Portland in the American Hockey League.
A 2011 Hobey Baker winner with Miami-Ohio, Miele was selected as college
hockey's top player thanks to leading the NCAA in scoring in 2010-11. He
posted 24 goals and 47 assists in just 39 games.
