According to new team insider Jamie Thomas the Winnipeg Jets have locked up Bryan Little to a multi year extension. Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet added that it is a six year deal with a 5.291 AAV. Lastly about the contract Darren Dreger of TSN updated the details as follows: “Little has a no move clause to the end of the 2019-20 regular season. After that, modified no trade clause kicks in.”.
Little will be 30 in November. He has one year left before the six year contract extension kicks in. Little had 21 goals and 47 points in 59 games last season.
Update: Team has now confirmed the extension. For all the latest be sure to keep it locked to @illegalcurve hockey.
