Lowry 'ecstatic' to sign three-year contract with Jets

25-year-old centre embraces shut down role, and is excited for a new season

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Adam Lowry plans to have a "low key" summer, but July 19 was anything but.

The 25-year-old centre signed a three-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets that day, and - making the date even more important - avoiding the arbitration date, which was set for July 22, by three days.

Lowry couldn't imagine signing his deal - which comes with a 2.916 average annual value - with any other team.

"I wanted to be back in Winnipeg for a good amount of time. It's where I broke into the League, they're the team that drafted me and gave me the opportunity to play in the NHL," said Lowry, who the Jets chose in the third round of the 2011 NHL Draft.

"To be able to sign for three more years, I'm ecstatic."

You can have summer, and hockey too!

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

If you can't wait until October to get your fill of hockey, then the Manitoba Museum's new exhibit Hockey: Stories Behind our Passion could be your ticket to get through this hot, hot summer. I was there July 8 to check out all the hockey history of the exhibit. Especially cool is the Manitoba: Heart of Hockey display, which explains some of why we are so hockey crazy in this town! There's lots of great Jets and Moose stuff in there too, including some of Laine's equipment! Winnipeg is Good!

Five Jets RFAs file for arbitration

Cheveldayoff: 'We feel like we're in a good spot with our projections.'

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Five of the Winnipeg Jets' restricted free agents have filed for arbitration, ahead of Thursday's 4 pm CT deadline outlined in the league's collective bargaining agreement.

But Jets General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says this is just a step in the process, as the organization continues to mature.

"There are steps along the way," he said following the opening of free agency on July 1. "We're becoming a mature organization and a mature market to understand that every summer there is July 1, and every summer there is arbitration. Every summer you go through the different processes of things."

Officially kicking off summer, Canada Day-style

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

Did you realize just how many awesome things there are to do in Manitoba? I've been kept hopping these past few weeks visiting some really great places, meeting some old and new friends, helping to support some amazing causes, and having a lot of fun too!

I still have Canada Day on my mind as I had a fantastic day at both the festivities at the Forks, and at the Osborne Village Street Festival. It was great to see so many families out on what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day. I stuck out a bit in the sea of red and white but hey, I do have antlers - I'm used to it! And of course they come in handy, making me easy to spot so you can come say "hello"!
