Veteran centerman Derick Brassard signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday, the team announced.

The deal will see the 33-year-old earn $1.2 million in 2021, a source told AZ Coyotes Insider's Craig Morgan.

"Derick is an experienced, skilled forward who can play center or wing and contribute offensively," general manager Bill Armstrong said in a statement. "He is also very effective in the faceoff circle. We look forward to having him in our lineup this season."

The 6-foot-1 Brassard tallied 10 goals and 22 assists in 66 regular-season appearances for the New York Islanders last season. He averaged 13:42 of ice time.

During the Isles' run to the conference finals, Brassard added two goals and six helpers in 18 outings.
