The Arizona Coyotes reportedly remain intent on re - signing goaltender Antti Raanta , according to Arizona Sports' Craig Morgan, despite the fact that they just traded for Los Angeles Kings netminder Darcy Kuemper and apparently signed him to a two- year , $ 3 .7-million extension .

Antti Raanta (born 12 May 1989) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was originally signed by the Chicago Blackhawks as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

The Arizona Coyotes have re-signed goaltender Antti Raanta to a three-year deal.

General manager John Chayka announced the move Friday that keeps Raanta under contract through the 2020-21 season. Raanta would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The 28-year-old Raanta is 21-16-6 with a 2.24 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 46 games after injuries threatened to derail his season. With Raanta playing well and improvements under first-year coach Rick Tocchet, Arizona is 16-8-2 since Feb. 12 after losing 42 of its first 55 games.

Raanta is 9-1-0 with a 1.30 GAA and .959 save percentage and two shutouts in his past 10 appearances. That's the play Chayka expected when the Coyotes acquired Raanta and centre Derek Stepan from the New York Rangers last off-season in a trade that meant giving up the seventh overall pick and defensive prospect Anthony DeAngelo.
