Phoenix Coyotes re-sign Upshall to 1-year contract; still rehabbing from surgery

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Phoenix Coyotes say they have re-signed left-wing Scottie Upshall to a one-year contract.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Upshall had a career-high 18 goals and 14 assists in 49 games for Phoenix before sustaining a season-ending knee injury on Jan. 28 against Calgary. He led the team in goals at the time of his injury and underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee.
