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.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
