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

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
