The Winnipeg Jets are reuniting with veteran defenceman Luca Sbisa after the two sides agreed to a one-year, $800,000 contract Friday.

The Jets claimed Sbisa off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks last October and he appeared in 44 games for Winnipeg, scoring 10 points with a plus-one rating and 37 penalty minutes.

The 30-year-old has also played for the Canucks, Flyers, Golden Knights and Islanders over his 12-year career.

Earlier in on Friday, the Jets re-signed defenceman Nathan Beaulieu and acquired centre Paul Stastny from the Golden Knights.
