Winnipeg Jets sign defenceman Toby Enstrom to five-year contract extension

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets signed defenceman Toby Enstrom to a US$28.75-million, five-year contract extension Friday.

The 27-year-old Enstrom, who could have become an unrestricted free agent next summer, appeared in 62 games last season with the Jets, recording 33 points (six goals, 27 assists).

The native of Nordingra, Sweden, is the Atlanta-Winnipeg franchise's leader among defencemen in games played (380), points (204) and assists (172).

Enstrom was originally drafted by the Thrashers in the eighth round of the 2003 draft.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
