Anthony Peluso has signed a two-year, $1.35 million deal with the Winnipeg Jets.
Peluso had two points and 86 penalty minutes in 49 contests with Winnipeg in 2014-15. He did miss some time due to injury, but he also was listed as a healthy scratch on occasion. If he plays consistently in 2015-16 then he might have some value to those who are primarily after PIM, but he still probably won't chip in much offensively. Jun 17 - 11:35 AM

Anthony Peluso fired a puck 103.9 mph to win Winnipeg's hardest shot challenge at the team's skills competition Wednesday night.

The fourth-line tough guy, who as one goal on just 11 shots in 16 games, was a surprise winner. He'll probably be encouraged to shoot more now, though. Peluso still has one game to serve on his three-game suspension for hitting Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski from behind. He will be eligible to return on Sunday, December 22nd in Vancouver.
