The Phoenix Coyotes signed their 2013 first-round draft pick, Max Domi, to a three-year deal on Sunday. 

Domi, the 12th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, was officially brought on board by way of an entry-level contract with the Coyotes, reports AZ Central Sports' Sarah McLellan. Phoenix general manager Don Maloney says Domi is a talented player whose progress they will monitor.

"We are very pleased to sign Max to an entry-level contract. Max is a very talented young player with a bright future. He had an impressive prospect development camp, and we look forward to watching his progress."   

Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said the team is due for an upgrade at the forward spot and Domi should fit right in, per McLellan. 

"We talk about trying to upgrade our skill level on our forward lines, and he's a skilled player. So we'll have a look and see how it goes."

Domi is the son of former Toronto Maple Leaf Tie Domi. He spent last season with the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights, where he scored 39 goals and 87 points in 64 games. 

He will also play for Canada's 2013 National Junior Team summer development camp in Brossard, Quebec and Lake Placid, N.Y. from August 4-10.
