Winnipeg Jets agree to terms with forward O'Dell to one-year, two-way deal

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Eric O'Dell on a new one-year, two-way contract Tuesday worth US$600,000 at the NHL level.

O'Dell, 23, had 29 goals and 26 assists in 59 games with the AHL's St. John's IceCaps last season.

The native of Ottawa was originally selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the second round, 39th overall, in the 2008 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
