Winnipeg Jets sign Dylan Samberg to a three-year ELC

The 21-year old defenceman was originally selected 43rd overall by the Jets in 2017

There has been lots of speculation about left shot defenceman Dylan Samberg of Hermantown, Minnesota over the last year. When the Jets 2017 2nd rounder chose to play a third straight college season with the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs as he chased the rare (only accomplished once before) three-peat there was some concern from Jets fans that he might not sign with the Jets.

Today the team announced that they have inked Samberg to a three-year, entry-level contract with an average annual value of $1,175,000.

The Jets stated the contract begins next season which would mean that even if the 2019-20 season resumes it would appear that Samberg would not participate.  Samberg is expected to challenge for a spot with the Jets next season with the lack of left side defenceman currently under contract for the 2020-21 season.

Samberg is set to speak at 2 PM and Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will speak at 3 PM.  Both will be featured on site.

The Jets playing group for tomorrow's game in Montreal is set and most skated together so the lines and D pairs can be "reasonably" inferred.
