Jets avoid arbitration with Frolik, agree to one-year deal with winger

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have signed forward Michael Frolik to a US$3.3-million, one-year contract.

The two sides were scheduled to go to salary arbitration on Thursday.

Frolik had 42 points (15 goals, 27 assists) in 81 games with the Jets last season.

The 26-year-old native of Kladno, Czech Republic has 193 career points (76-117) and 137 penalty minutes in 430 career NHL games with Florida, Chicago and Winnipeg.

Frolik was acquired by the Jets from the Chicago Blackhawks on June 30, 2013 in exchange for Winnipeg's third- and fifth-round picks in the 2013 NHL draft.

He was originally drafted by the Florida Panthers in the first round (10th overall) in 2006.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
