Arizona has locked up one of their remaining free agents, announcing the re-signing of defenseman Dysin Mayo to a one-year, two-way contract. CapFriendly reports (Twitter link) that the deal is worth $715K in the NHL and $70K in the minors.
The 22-year-old wrapped up his entry-level contract last season, suiting up in a career-high 67 games with their AHL affiliate in Tuscon. However, he made a very limited impact offensively, collecting just two goals and four assists on the season which had him on the bubble to receive a qualifying offer. Mayo was a productive blueliner at the WHL level, recording at least 35 points in each of his three full seasons but that has yet to translate to the pros.
With Arizona’s depth on the back end, it’s hard to envision Mayo realistically pushing for a roster spot with the Coyotes in training camp. Instead, he’ll likely be exposed to waivers and if he clears, he’ll once again serve as injury depth in Tuscon. The team now has 46 players under contract and they still need to re-sign goalie Adin Hill; RFA center Emil Pettersson has already signed in Sweden for next season.
