Jets agree to terms with forwards Peluso, O'Dell
The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Anthony Peluso on a new two-year contract worth $1.125 million, the team announced Monday night.

The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Anthony Peluso on a two-year contract worth $1.125 million, the team announced Monday night.

Peluso, 24, was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Jan. 6, 2012. Before suffering a season-ending injury, Peluso made his NHL debut by playing five games with the Jets. He had two assists and 14 penalty minutes.

The North York, Ontario, native played in 181 career American Hockey League games with Peoria, where he had 29 points (15 goals, 14 assists) and 376 penalty minutes. He was chosen by the St. Louis Blues in the sixth round (No. 160) of the 2007 NHL Draft.

The Jets announced Tuesday they agreed to terms with forward Eric O’Dell on a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

O’Dell, 23, played in 59 games with the St. John’s IceCaps last season; he had 55 points (29 goals) and 26 penalty minutes. He led the team in goals, assists, points and power-play goals, and holds the records for most goals and points in IceCaps history.

In 101 AHL games between St. John’s and Chicago, he has 77 points (41 goals) and 53 penalty minutes.

He was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the second round (No. 39) in the 2008 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
