It's team No. 6 for WNYer Clendening, who signs with Coyotes

Wheatfield native Adam Clendening didn't get a qualifying offer earlier this week from the New York Rangers but didn't take long to find a new home.

Clendening has signed a one-year, $650,000 with the Arizona Coyotes after playing 31 games for the Rangers last season. Clendening, a Boston University product who was a second-round pick by Chicago in 2011, has already played for five teams in his NHL career.

After starting with the Hawks, he's appeared with Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Edmonton and the Rangers. A former AHL all-star at Rockford, Clendening's best NHL run came last year with the Rangers (two goals, nine assists).

He has a real chance to play with the Coyotes, who are weak on the right side of their defense behind newly acquired Niklas Hjalmarsson and Luke Schenn.
