The Arizona Coyotes signed 18-year-old goaltender Anson Thornton to a three-year, entry-level contract Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed.

“We are very pleased to sign Anson,” general manager Bill Armstrong said in a news release. “He is a big, athletic goaltender who displayed tremendous poise and calmness in net for us during camp. We look forward to watching him continue to develop.”

Thornton is in his first season with the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League.

The Ontario native attended the Coyotes’ 2021 training camp on an amateur tryout agreement. He appeared in one preseason game with Arizona and stopped all 17 shots faced to earn the win against the Los Angeles Kings on Sept. 27.
