The Winnipeg Jets on Thursday signed 2013 first-round draft pick Joshua Morrissey to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The contract has an average annual value of $1.425 million per season, but will not start until after Morrissey plays his 10th NHL game. He will spend the 2013-14 season with his junior team, the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League.

The 6-foot, 186-pound defenseman, taken with the 13th pick of the draft, had 15 goals and 47 points with Prince Albert last season.

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
