“We are pleased to sign Mikkel prior to the beginning of training camp,” Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney said. “Mikkel is an important player for us and having him under contract makes us a better team.”
The Coyotes opened up training camp on Saturday, with rookies reporting. Veterans, including the re-signed Boedker, are scheduled to report on Wednesday, September 11.
“I’m thrilled to sign a new contract with the Coyotes,” said Boedker. “We have a great team and coaching staff and I'm really looking forward to this season.”
Last season the Brondby, Denmark native tallied 26-points on seven-goals and 19-assists. Boedker was drafted by Phoenix in the first round, eighth overall, in the 2008 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
