Utah Hockey Club forward Liam O'Brien signed a three-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team, however TSN reported the deal was worth a total of $3 million. He was a pending unrestricted free agent prior to signing the contract.

"He adds energy, grit and physical presence to the line-up every night that will greatly complement the excitement we expect from Utah hockey fans, especially in our inaugural season. We look forward to having Liam on our roster for the next several seasons."

O'Brien, 29, recorded career-high totals in goals (five), assists (nine), points (14) and penalty minutes (153) in 75 games last season with the Arizona Coyotes, who have relocated to Salt Lake City under new ownership.
