The Phoenix Coyotes have locked up former Flames forward David Moss.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie tweets Moss has signed a two-year deal with the Coyotes to join their pack of hard-playing forwards. Moss is coming off a season in which he played just 32 games thanks to injury.
(McKenzie also notes Moss’ average annual capt hit is $2.1 million.)
Speaking of injuries, they’ve been Moss’ issue through his career — his last full season came all the way back in 2008-09.
“I’m pretty eager to play an 82-game season,” Moss told the Coyotes website. “I’m probably more excited than anybody to get back on the ice.”
With the Coyotes having a host of other free agents of their own to worry about (Shane Doan, Ray Whitney, Taylor Pyatt, Daymond Langkow) locking up Moss helps them mitigate the possible exodus they might face this summer.
