The Winnipeg Jets have signed restricted free agent Zach Bogosian to a contract. Terms were not immediately disclosed.
The 6’3” 215 lb blueliner finished the 2010-11 season with five goals and 12 assists in 71 regular season games. He also clocked a disappointing -27 in plus-minus.
Bogosian, who was drafted in the first round (third overall) by Atlanta in the 2008 entry draft, has already played in 199 NHL games for the Thrashers despite turning 21-years-old in July.
ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun tweeted that the two-year deal will pay the Massena, New York native $2 million this year and $3 million in 2012-2013.
On Thursday, the Jets also revealed their 2011 training camp schedule.
