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 was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
