The Arizona Coyotes are the latest team to take a flyer on Teemu Pulkkinen.

He was acquired from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for future considerations, the clubs announced Monday.

The 25-year-old forward cleared waivers earlier Monday for the second time since he was claimed off the wire from the Detroit Red Wings in October.

He's a proven AHL goal-scorer, with 18 in 47 games for the Iowa Wild this season and back-to-back 30-plus goal campaigns with the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2013-14 and 2014-15, but he has yet to stick at the NHL level.

Pulkkinen scored once in nine games with the Wild. He was a fourth-round pick of the Red Wings in 2010.
