Winnipeg Jets sign Enstrom to 5-year extension

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - The Winnipeg Jets signed defenseman Toby Enstrom to a $28.75-million, five-year contract extension Friday.

The 27-year-old Enstrom, who could have become an unrestricted free agent next summer, had six goals and 27 assists in 62 games last season. The Swede is the Atlanta-Winnipeg franchise's leader among defensemen in games (380), points (204) and assists (172).

Enstrom was drafted by the Thrashers in the eighth round in 2003.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
