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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
