Arizona Coyotes center Clayton Keller signed an eight-year contract extension through the 2027-28 season, the team announced Wednesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the Coyotes, however Craig Morgan of The Athletic reported that the deal is worth a total of $57.2 million.

Keller, who is entering the final year of his entry-level contract, had 14 goals last season and led Arizona with 47 points. The 21-year-old became the youngest player in Coyotes history to play in an All-Star game when he received the honor last season.

"Clayton is elite in every sense of the word," general manager John Chayka said in a statement. "He is not only an All-Star and one of the premier offensive playmakers in the league, but he is equally special as a person with his drive and determination to be great. We are thankful to Clayton for believing in our future and look forward to him playing a vital role on this team for many years to come."

Keller has collected 37 goals and 77 assists in 167 games since being selected by the Coyotes with the seventh overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

"This is a truly special day for my family and I," Keller said. "I love everything about being a Coyote. My teammates are great. We have a great coaching staff. Everything about this organization is on the right track and I know we have an opportunity to do some special things here for a long time. Arizona is where I want to be and I'm proud to commit to the Coyotes long term.

"I'm thankful to the organization for believing in me and believing in what we can accomplish moving forward."
