I was a bit surprised that he hadn’t been signed by the organization to provide some depth earlier than July 1st. He is a steady AHL defenceman who has provided good veteran leadership to a relatively young D core in Manitoba. As well after last playing in the NHL with the Capitals back in 2014-15 he finally got the call to go back up four years later as the Jets had a need and he ended up playing in four games with Winnipeg. He was a player Jets head coach Paul Maurice referenced when talking about their blueline depth.
Today the Jets announced they had re-signed him to a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000.00 at the NHL.
