WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have signed defenceman Paul Postma on a new two-year contract worth US$1.425 million.

Quote of the Day

You get the right 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.
