The Utah Hockey Club re-signed defenseman Michael Kesselring to a two-year contract on Friday.

Terms were not disclosed but reports put the average annual value of the deal at $1.4 million.

Kesselring, 24, scored 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) in 65 games with the Arizona Coyotes in 2023-24.

"We are very pleased to have Michael as part of our club," said Utah general manager Bill Armstrong. "He skates well, moves the puck effectively, and has a strong shot that can provide offense from the blueline. We look forward to having Michael in Utah for years to come."

He made his NHL debut with Arizona in 2022-23 and collected three assists in nine games that season.

Kesselring was a sixth-round pick by the Edmonton Oilers in 2018 out of Northeastern.
