The Arizona Coyotes announced on their X account on Wednesday afternoon that they've signed 11 players to professional tryout contracts (PTO) including former Canucks fifth overall pick, Olli Juolevi.

"The Coyotes have signed the following players to PTO agreements:
Peter DiLiberatore (D)
Olli Juolevi (D)
Austin Strand (D)
Hunter Drew (F)
Ryan Dzingel (F)
Patrick Harper (F)
Cameron Hebig (F)
Micah Miller (F)
Austin Poganski (F)
Colin Theisen (F)
Reece Vitelli (F)"

Juolevi, 25, was drafted by the Canucks back in 2016 and there was a lot of hope that he could become a top pairing defenceman for them in the future. Unfortunately, that did not happen due to multiple factors, including injury issues he faced to his knee and hip.
He appeared in 24 games for the Canucks, one playoff appearance in 2020 and then 23 during the 2020-21 season, where he had three points (two goals, one assist) and was a minus-one.
Before the start of the 2021-22 campaign, the Canucks traded him to the Florida Panthers where he would spend five months before being placed on waivers and claimed by the Detroit Red Wings.
Last season, the Helsinki native played for the AHL's San Diego Gulls while under contract with the Anaheim Ducks. In 38 games for the Gulls, Juolevi had 14 points (one goal, 13 assists), 22 penalty minutes and was a minus-14.
