Jets agree to terms with first-round pick Ehlers on entry-level contract

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with 2014 first-round pick Nikolaj Ehlers.

Ehlers, the ninth overall pick, will make US$1.625 million each season at the NHL level on the two-way deal.

The Danish left-winger had 49 goals and 55 assists last season for the Halifax Mooseheads.

The 18-year-old Ehlers was the first player to be drafted out of the QMJHL in June.
