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.
