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

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
