Laurent Brossoit agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.225 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.
The 26-year-old goalie could have become a restricted free agent July 1.
Brossoit went 10-0-1 in his first 11 starts with the Jets this season and established an NHL career high in games played (21), starts (19) and wins (13). He had a 2.52 goals-against average, a .925 save percentage and had his first NHL shutout in a 1-0 victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Dec. 22.
"It goes a long way to play with the same group of guys for more than one year. I'm excited to do that," Brossoit told the Jets website. "The coaching staff, I have a lot of love and respect for them. To come to a number we could agree on and for me to come back to familiar territory, it was an easy sell."
Selected in the sixth round (No. 163) by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Draft, Brossoit was traded to the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 8, 2013, and signed a one-year contract with the Jets on July 1, 2018.
In 49 games (39 starts) with the Oilers and Jets, Brossoit is 20-19-4 with a 2.77 GAA and .911 save percentage.
