Defender Maveric Lamoureux signed his entry-level three-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday.
Financial terms of the first agreement professional pick of the 29th overall pick in the most recent National Hockey League draft have not been specified.
“He is a big, strong and physical guard, while being a very good skater and possessing a nice shot. We look forward to seeing his progress this season,” club general manager Bill Armstrong said in a statement.
Last season, Lamoureux had four goals and 20 assists for 24 points in 54 games with the Drummondville Voltigeurs, in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The 18-year-old, 6'7″, had 31 points, including five goals, in 78 career outings with his junior squad.
