Clayton Keller signs eight-year extension

Clayton Keller has reportedly signed an eight-year extension with the Arizona Coyotes. It's believed the deal will pay him in the range of $7.15 million annually. (Elliotte Friedman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The 21-year-old winger was a 7th overall pick back in 2016 and is now locked into the core of the Coyotes moving forward. The playmaker managed to put up 65 points in his rookie season but took a bit of a step back with just 47 a season ago. However, he's still led the 'Yotes in scoring in both of his seasons. Keller is a product of the high-skilled, smaller game that the NHL has been heading towards in recent years, but his size has not been a detractor to his ability to stay healthy, as he's yet to miss a game. The young Coyotes are moving in the right direction and it's certainly a bonus to have an established sniper in Phil Kessel joining the fold. This new deal clearly demonstrates the confidence the Coyotes have in Keller, so there is some nice upside here.
