When Phoenix Coyotes camp opens next week they’ll have one of their better offensive players there without worry.

Restricted free agent Mikkel Boedker signed a two-year deal with the Coyotes. TSN’s Bob McKenzie says it’s worth a total of $5.1 million with a cap hit of $2.55 million. Now he’ll look to show that the offense he generated last season was a sign of things to come. GM Don Maloney is more than happy with the signing.

“We are pleased to sign Mikkel prior to the beginning of training camp,” said Maloney. “Mikkel is an important player for us and having him under contract makes us a better team.”

Boedker, 23, had 26 points last season for the Coyotes, two points shy of his career-high set during his rookie year, putting him fourth on the team in scoring. Over his five seasons in the league, his 26 points in 48 games was the highest points-per-game ratio in his career.

With Boedker and Washington’s Marcus Johansson both signing today, there are just six key restricted free agents left to be signed. New York Ranger Derek Stepan, St. Louis’ Alex Pietrangelo, Toronto’s Cody Franson and Nazem Kadri, Buffalo’s Cody Hodgson, and Ottawa’s Jared Cowen.

    2.5 for a second liner is great. Very good signing by the Coyotes. New Owners’ pocketbooks aren’t even being tested here.

    Coyotes won 50 a few years back. They’ve got a goalie they’re confident in, and their D is looking way up with big-name prospects coming up. If they get the offence rolling – and Boedker helps a lot – look for them to maybe come from left field like the Kings did.
