Winnipeg Jets re-sign centre Bryan Little to new five-year, $23.5-million deal

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets re-signed centre Bryan Little to a new five-year contract worth $23.5 million on Monday.

The 25-year-old is a member of Winnipeg's top line with captain Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler.

Little, who avoided arbitration, had seven goals and 25 assists in 48 games last season.

In 404 games with the franchise, the 12th overall pick in the 2006 NHL draft has 99 goals and 128 assists.

The Jets still need to come to terms with Wheeler, who has also filed for arbitration.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
