Coyotes Sign Mike Carcone To Two-Year Contract

Scottsdale, Arizona – The Arizona Coyotes and General Manager Bill Armstrong announced Wednesday that forward Mike Carcone had been re-signed to a two-year, one-way contract. The reigning AHL scoring leader remains in the desert after setting Roadrunners team records in 2022-23 with 31 goals and 85 total points, as well as two goals and an assist in nine NHL games with the Arizona Coyotes.

Carcone set career highs across the board in his third campaign with the Tucson Roadrunners, finishing the year with 31 goals, 54 assists and 85 total points in 65 games played. The 27-year-old led the American Hockey League in total points and shots on goal (273), while also finishing in the top five in goals (5th), assists (3rd), power-play goals (3rd), power-play points (2nd), and had the longest scoring streak in the league at 15 consecutive games with a point.

“We are very pleased to sign Michael to a two-year contract,” said Armstrong. “Michael had a very good season last year leading the entire American Hockey League in scoring and helping Team Canada win a gold medal at the IIHF World Championship. We look forward to having him back next season.”

Along with winning the John B. Sollenberger Trophy as the leading point-getter in the AHL in 2022-23, Carcone represented the Roadrunners at his first AHL All-Star Classic in Laval in February and was named to the AHL’s First All-Star Team at the end of the season.

Since joining the Roadrunners prior to the start of the 2020-21 season, Mike Carcone has totaled 70 goals and 81 assists for 151 points in 148 games played. Following his first season in Southern Arizona, Carcone signed a two-year, two-way contract with Arizona on July 29, 2021. He ranks in the top three in team history for goals (2nd), assists (3rd), total points (2nd) and penalty minutes (207 – 3rd). Carcone made his National Hockey League debut with the Arizona Coyotes on December 28, 2021, and has since registered nine points (6g 3a) in 30 NHL contests with Arizona.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Coyotes announced that defenseman Steven Kampfer was signed to a one-year, two-way contract. Kampfer joined the Roadrunners in March 2023 after appearing in 44 games with the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. The 34-year-old recorded two goals and five assists for seven points in 15 games with Tucson, and represented the United States at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing alongside Roadrunners teammate Nathan Smith.
