The Phoenix Coyotes have re-signed center Kyle Turris to a multi-year contract, general manager Don Maloney announced today. The terms of the deal were not disclosed and is contingent upon Turris passing a medical examination.

"We are pleased to agree to terms with Kyle on a multi-year contract," said Maloney. "Kyle is a top, young player who will make us a better team. We look forward to having him in our lineup so he can contribute to our team."

There's been plenty of discussion about the nature of the negotiations, centering around paying for potential or what Turris has already accomplished in young career.

The 22-year-old has appeared in 131 career regular season games with the Coyotes, registering 19-27-46 and 39 PIM in three seasons. He set career highs last season in games played (65), goals (11), assists (14) and points (25). He was the third pick overall in the 2007 Entry Draft.
