Jets sign RFA Adam Lowry to three-year deal, avoid arbitration

Winnipeg Free Press columnist Paul Wiecek joins Tim and Sid to talk about Connor Hellebuyck's new contract with the Jets plus much more.

The Winnipeg Jets have signed forward Adam Lowry to a three-year, $8.75-million deal, the team announced Thursday.

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.
