The contract, which carries a $2.916-million cap hit, means the two sides avoid arbitration just days before the scheduled hearing.
Lowry suited up for just 45 games with the Jets in 2017-18 due to injury, registering eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points and plenty of time on the penalty kill. He was also part of the Jets’ deep post-season run, contributing a team-leading 47 hits through 17 contests. The 25-year-old has tallied a total of 41 goals and 49 assists for 90 career NHL points in 281 regular season games over the course of four seasons — all with Winnipeg.
Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has lots more work ahead of him this off-season, including a few more arbitration cases — Marko Dano, Brandon Tanev and Jacob Trouba all filed as well. Cheveldayoff inked Connor Hellebuyck to a six-year extension last week.
