The Arizona Coyotes agreed to a one-year contract extension Tuesday with defenseman Juuso Valimaki.

Terms were not disclosed but multiple reports put the value of the deal at $1 million.

"We are very pleased to sign Juuso to a one-year extension," general manager Bill Armstrong said in a release. "He is a big, strong, two-way defenseman who has been a great addition to our defensive corps. We look forward to having him on our roster next season."

The Coyotes claimed Valimaki off waivers from Calgary prior to the start of the season. He has two goals and 10 assists in 43 games with Arizona.

Valimaki, 24, has 28 points (five goals, 23 assists) in 125 games with the Coyotes and Flames, who drafted the Finland native in the first round (16th overall) in 2017.
