The club didn’t disclose the terms of the former Coyote’s contract.

Kolyachonok played five NHL games for Arizona last season and 39 over the past three years, including 32 contests in the 2021-22 season.

The Minsk, Belarus native was originally a draft pick by the new Stanley Cup champion Florida Panthers in 2019. He was selected during the second round with the No. 52 overall pick in the NHL Draft.

Florida traded the defenseman to Arizona in July 2021.

During his time at the NHL level, Kolyachonok has recorded two goals, five assists, and eight penalty minutes in 39 games. Last season, he posted one goal, three assists, and two PIM in five games with the Coyotes.

Last season, the defenseman spent most of the season with Utah’s AHL affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners. With the Roadrunners, Kolyachonok had eight goals and three assists in 36 AHL games.

Kolyachonok is the latest player in a series of recent pre-draft signings by Utah HC. Earlier in June, Utah Hockey Club signed forward Noel Nordh, forward Julian Lutz, goaltender Matt Villalta, defenseman Patrik Koch, and forward Ben McCartney.

Utah Hockey Club will open its 2024 preseason schedule against the St. Louis Blues at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa on September 22. The team’s first preseason game at home will be against the LA Kings a day later on September 23.

Utah will begin its inaugural season as an NHL team in the fall. The team will play its home games at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City.
