Arbitration filings for Andrew Copp: Winnipeg Jets are at 2x $1.5M, player at 1x $2.9M

48 hours ahead of the arbitration hearing we get a look at what both sides are thinking.

Andrew Copp pre game

We are two days away from the arbitration date for Jets forward Andrew Copp which is scheduled for Sunday, July 21st.  The filings had to be in today prior to the hearing in 48 hours and according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet it looks like this:

Jets 2x$1.5M; player is 1x$2.9.

Last year with Jacob Trouba, as a point of reference, the Jets were seeking a one year contract worth $4.0 million and Trouba’s camp wanted one year $7.0 million.  The arbitrator split the difference and awarded him $5.5 million for the 2018-19 season.

Might we something similar here?  The folks at Evolving Wild predicted a two year deal for Copp with a projected cap hit of $2,176,861.

But if you’re thinking this could still get settled in advance of the hearing here is what Copp’s agent told Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun:

Although just because Overhardt said that doesn’t preclude the two sides from getting something done in advance of the hearing.
