The Jets and Michael Frolik have avoided arbitration as he signed a one year contract with the club for 3.3 million dollars according to Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press.

This was confirmed via the Jets twitter a few minutes later:

For those concerned that Frolik and the Jets couldn’t get a longer term deal done Gary Lawless added this:

According to the CBA this cannot occur before January 1st, 2015. Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun had this to add:

Back on January 6th, 2014 Richard Pollock wrote an assessment of a Michael Frolik contract which looks at the term he might have been seeking this summer.

The Jets held a conference call with GM Kevin Cheveldayoff at 12:30 pm.  You can listen to the entire conference call here.

What do you think of the deal?

    What’s with all the one year contracts? It looks like Chevy will have to re-sign most of the team next year.

    Not too sure what you mean. Chevy has signed RFA AHLers to one year deals plus Pardy, Ellerby (2way) to one year deals. But besides Frolik he’s signed Perreault and Thorburn to 3 year deals. The only guys Chevy will have to re-sign next year, besides the guys I mentioned already, are Postma, Peluso and Slater. Hardly “most of the team.”

    Hopefully we see a 3-4 year extension by the All-Star break. If Chevy mismanages this one he needs to be shown the door.
