Marko Dano agreed to terms on a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old forward was a restricted free agent who had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30. He had three points (two goals, one assist) in 23 games with the Jets last season and did not play a Stanley Cup Playoff game.

Selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round (No. 27) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Dano has 45 points (19 goals, 26 assists) in 130 games with the Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks and Jets.

Dano was acquired by the Jets on Feb. 26. 2016 in a trade with the Blackhawks for forward Andrew Ladd. Dano was acquired by the Blue Jackets with forward Artem Anisimov from the Blackhawks in a trade that included forward Brandon Saad.

The Jets also agreed to terms with defenseman Tucker Poolman on a three-year, $2.325 million contract with an average annual value of $775,000. Poolman, 25, had two points (one goal, one assist) in 24 regular-season games and no points in two playoff games.
