The Central Hockey League added another NHLer to its ranks on Monday as Phoenix Coyotes forward Kyle Chipchura signed with the Arizona Sundogs.
“We are excited to have such a talented guy join our team.” Arizona General Manager Chris Presson said of Chipchura. “He brings with him the experience that we are looking for. He has helped his teams on more than one occasion reach the championships, so he knows what it takes.”
