The Winnipeg Jets might have two pieces back in their lineup next season after re-signing Brandon Tanev and getting an arbitration ruling on Jacob Trouba!
Tanev, 26, appeared in 61 games last season for Winnipeg, scoring eight goals and adding 10 assists. In 17 postseason games, Tanev added two goals and four assists.
Also on Sunday, an arbitrator awarded defenceman Jacob Trouba a one-year, US$5.5-million contract for the 2018-19 season.
Winnipeg has 48 hours to accept the ruling or turn it down and make Trouba an unrestricted free agent.
Trouba had 24 points during an injury-plagued campaign with the Jets last season.
The six-foot-three, 202-pound defenceman scored a career-high 33 points in 60 games during 2016-17. He sat out training camp and the start of the season over a dispute with the team, before signing a two-year, $6-million contract that expired on July 1.
