The Arizona Coyotes signed forward Christian Fischer to a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, but the pact reportedly carries a cap hit of around $1.126 million, according to CapFriendly.

"We are very pleased to sign Christian," Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong said. "He is a hard-working forward and a great teammate who is well-respected in our dressing room. We look forward to having him back next season."

Fischer, 25, logged five goals and five assists in 53 contests in 2021-22. He also pitched in with 91 hits and 22 blocks while averaging just over 13 minutes per game.

Selected by the Coyotes in the second round of the 2015 draft, Fischer has spent his entire NHL career with the franchise.
