Veteran forward Paul Stastny has signed a one-year, $3.75-million deal to stay with the Winnipeg Jets, the team announced Monday.

The deal was first reported by Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

The 35-year-old centre was slated to become an unrestricted free agent with his three-year, $19.5-million contract signed with the Vegas Golden Knights in 2018 set to come off the books.

Stastny — a 15-year NHL pro, who played in his 1,000th regular season game in May — had 29 points in 56 contests for the Jets, adding two points in six post-season games.

The Quebec City native has recorded 755 points in his NHL career with stints also in Colorado, St. Louis and Vegas.
