The Arizona Coyotes signed defenseman Juuso Valimaki to a one-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth $1 million, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Valimaki has registered two goals and 10 assists in 43 games this season while averaging 14:59 per contest. He's also added 41 shots, 37 blocks, and 24 hits. His 47.77% expected goals share at five-on-five leads all Coyotes defensemen, per Natural Stat Trick.

Arizona claimed the 24-year-old off waivers from the Calgary Flames in October. The Flames originally selected him 16th overall at the 2017 draft.
