Right wing Shane Doan said Thursday in a radio interview he has a "deal worked out" to remain with the Phoenix Coyotes but is waiting for Greg Jamison to complete the purchase of the team, NHL.com reported.
"We have a deal worked out, that we just want to make sure the team gets signed, and everything gets done, and it gets done before the 15th (of September)," Doan said on XTRA 910 AM Radio in Arizona.
Doan became a free agent July 1 but has always said he wants to remain in Phoenix.
Doan has set Sept. 15 - the day the Collective Bargaining Agreement expires - as the deadline for him to agree to a new contract.
"I'll sign somewhere," he said. "My goal is to sign here."
Doan, 35, had 22 goals and 28 assists for Phoenix last season.
