Defenseman Meech signs with Jets

Defenseman Derek Meech has signed with the Winnipeg Jets, the team announced Sunday.

TSN reports the one-year, two-way deal is worth $700,000 in the NHL, $105,000 in the AHL.

Meech, 28, played two games for the Jets last season as he recovered from an injury. He also played six regular-season games in the American Hockey League with the St. John’s IceCaps, and 15 postseason games, scoring nine points (four goals, five assists) in the Calder Cup playoffs.

He has played in 128 career NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings and Winnipeg.

The Jets also signed forward Jason King, 30, to a contract with the IceCaps.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
