GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Phoenix Coyotes have defenseman David Schlemko to a two-year contract extension.

Coyotes general manager Don Maloney announced the deal Monday, but didn't disclose any financial details.

The 25-year-old Schlemko has two assists in nine games for Phoenix this season and ranks second on the team with 26 blocked shots.

He's been sidelined since Feb. 4 with a shoulder injury.

Schlemko originally was signed by the Coyotes as a free agent in July 2007.

In 118 career NHL games — all with Phoenix — Schlemko has six goals, 27 assists and 44 penalty minutes.
