Coyotes GM Don Maloney wasn’t able to re-sign Ray Whitney this summer, but he thinks he might have found his replacement in Steve Sullivan. Whitney inked a two-year, $9 million deal with the Dallas Stars while Sullivan agreed to a bargain bin level one-year, $1,850,000 contract that balloons to $2.6 million if you include his potential performance bonuses.
Check out the video below if you’re interested in learning more about what Maloney sees in Sullivan.
Sullivan certainly has big shoes to fill. He’s coming off a 48-point campaign while Ray Whitney netted 24 goals and registered 53 assists in 82 games last season. That being said, Sullivan should play in a bigger role in Phoenix than he did in 2011-12 with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
