Phoenix Coyotes right wing Shane Doan re-signed with the Phoenix Coyotes, the team announced Friday. The four-year deal is worth $21.2 million, with a two-year signing bonus, according to the Arizona Republic. "I'm extremely excited about remaining a Coyote," Doan said on the team's website. "I was drafted by this organization and it means a great deal to me to be able to play with the same franchise my entire career. "I'm very excited about our team, our coaching staff and our management and am confident about our future in Arizona. I chose to stay with the Coyotes because I am committed to winning here, not anywhere else and I love living and playing in the Valley. This is my home and this is my team." Doan, 35, has been with the franchise for 16 years, going back to the Winnipeg Jets era. He has 318 goals and 470 assists in 1,198 career games. He had 22 goals and 28 assists in 79 games last season as the Coyotes advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time, before being eliminated by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. "We are thrilled to sign Shane to a long-term contract," general manager Don Maloney said on the team's website. "Shane is our captain and the heart and soul of our franchise. He is the consummate professional and one of the best leaders in the NHL. His loyalty, commitment, integrity and passion for the game epitomize everything you'd want in a player. It was a priority for us to sign him to a long-term deal so that he can play for the Coyotes for the remainder of his career."
