(Reuters) - The Phoenix Coyotes traded disgruntled forward Kyle Turris to the Ottawa Senators for defenseman David Rundblad and a second round draft pick, the National Hockey League (NHL) teams said on Saturday.

Taken with the third overall selection in the 2007 draft by Phoenix, Turris was unable to reach agreement on a new contract with the Coyotes and sat out the first six weeks of the season before signing a two-year $2.8 million deal.

In six games since signing his new contract, Turris has yet to register a point but in two previous seasons in Phoenix recorded 19 goals and 26 assists.

Rundblad, a 21-year-old Swedish defenseman, is in his first season in the NHL and has one goal and three assists in 24 games.

"We are very excited to have David join our organisation," said Coyotes general manager Don Maloney on the team's website (http://coyotes.nhl.com). "He is a young, highly skilled defenseman with superior offensive sense.

"We look forward to David joining us in the desert and becoming an important player for us in the future."
