Coyotes Re-Sign Boedker

The Phoenix Coyotes have reportedly re-signed young Danish forward Mikkel Boedker to a new 2-year deal, worth $2.2 million.  Boedker, 21, is coming out of his entry-level deal as a restricted free agent and was given a very reasonable deal, which signals that he might be ready to take his game to the next level and become a full-time player for the Coyotes.

In 34 games last season, Boedker scored 4 goals and added 10 assists, which had him at a scoring rate of .41 points per game, which may put him just under the threshold of where he should be to be considered as a pool player, but at his age, he does have plenty of offensive upside, which means he should get better.  Boedker could work out to be a good late round pick.
