Winnipeg Jets sign forward Anthony Peluso to two-year contract

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets signed forward Anthony Peluso to a $1.125-million, two-year deal Monday.

The 24-year-old Toronto native made his NHL debut last season but played just five games before suffering a season-ending injury.

Peluso was selected in the sixth round of the 2007 draft by the St. Louis Blues. The six-foot-three, 235-pounder played in 181 American Hockey League games with Peoria, scoring 15 goals and 14 assists with 376 penalty minutes.

He was claimed off waivers by Winnipeg in January 2012.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
