It was a solid season in the AHL for Jets 2018 2nd rounder David Gustafsson although things didn’t go quite as swimmingly in the NHL as he was injured in the 1st periods of both games he played in during the 2021-22 campaign.
He revealed to us in his end of season Moose media availability that they were not insignificant injuries as he was dealing with both an MCL injury and a high-ankle sprain this campaign.
Despite these setbacks at the NHL level he continued to contribute in the AHL. He set a new career high for goals (15), assists (15) and points (30) in 47 games for Manitoba.
He will be sticking around in Winnipeg as he has signed a two-year deal with the Jets with an AAV of 775K. It is a two-way contract in year one and become a one-way deal in year two.
