Glendale, AZ - The Phoenix Coyotes signed goaltender Alex Auld to a one-year contract on Monday. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Auld posted a 7-13-5 record and 3.34 goals-against average in 27 games last season as the backup goaltender to Ed Belfour with the Florida Panthers.
Prior to last season, he posted a career-best 33 wins with a 2.94 GAA in 67 games for the Vancouver Canucks. In a five-year NHL career, Auld is 46-44-13 with a 2.89 GAA in 108 games.
The Ontario native adds depth in net for the Coyotes, who already feature David Aebischer, Mikael Tellqvist, and minor-leaguer David LeNeveu.
