Shane Doan is close to signing a contract extension with the Phoenix Coyotes.

An NHL source tells the Arizona Republic that both sides made "significant" progress in contract talks on Tuesday. Doan's agent, J.P. Barry, accompanied the team back to Phoenix after Tuesday night's game and a new multi-year deal for the 30 year old could be completed as early as today.

Doan is in the final year of his contract with the Coyotes and will earn $3.3-million this season. It's believed any new deal will pay him between $4-million and $5-million a year, which would make him the second highest paid player on the team behind defenseman Ed Jovanovski.

Another potential unrestricted free agent is about to be lifted off the market.

Sources tell TSN Phoenix Coyotes captain, Shane Doan has agreed to a five-year deal for a total of almost $23 million to remain with the organization.

Doan's agent JP Barry met with Phoenix management in Florida earlier this week and the negotiation continued through last night en-route to striking the deal.

The contract hasn't been signed and there are some "house keeping" issues to be resolved, but the key components, the term, the dollars and a highly coveted no-movement clause have been agreed to.

Doan, originally drafted 7th overall by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995 Entry Draft remains the only active player on the Coyotes roster who transferred to Phoenix when the franchise relocated in 1996.

Default Coyotes finalize deal with Doan

PHOENIX (CP) - The Phoenix Coyotes have made sure their captain will stay put for a long time.

Shane Doan signed a US$22.75-million, five-year contract extension with the Coyotes on Thursday, committing long-term to the only NHL franchise he has ever been a part of.

The deal was agreed to Wednesday after Coyotes CEO Jeff Shumway, GM Mike Barnett and Doan's agent J.P. Barry made significant progress during talks earlier in the week.

"I'm extremely excited to remain a Coyote," Doan said in a statement. "I was drafted by this organization and it means a great deal to me to be able to play with this franchise my entire career.

"I am very excited about our team, coaches and management and I am confident about our future. I chose to stay with the Coyotes because I love this city and our fans and I want to win here, not anywhere else."

The new deal will pay Doan $4.55 million a season. Doan, 30, is earning $3.38 million this season and was slated to be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

"All 30 teams would most certainly have knocked on his door," said Barnett. "Nonetheless, Shane instead elected to remain committed to the organization that gave him his first chance to be an NHLer.

"His is not a decision that we take lightly."
