Even though he hasn't signed a new contract, Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba will play in the World Cup of Hockey.

Trouba and the Jets have yet to come to terms on a contract and that won't stop him from participating in next month's tournament, according to his agent Kurt Overhardt. Trouba was named to Team North American's roster (young guns), after scoring six goals and 21 points in 81 games in 2015-16.

The Winnipeg Jets re-signed restricted free agent J.C. Lipon to a one-year, two-way deal.

The deal will pay him $650,000 at the NHL level and $85,000 in the AHL, but he's guaranteed to make $110,000, according to General Fanager. The 23-year-old had one assist in nine games with the Jets and 30 points in 45 games in the AHL. He should compete for a spot on Winnipeg's fourth line.

Winnipeg has brought in Todd Woodcroft to serve as an assistant coach.

Woodcroft will be Sweden's special assignment coach at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. He has also served as a video coach as well as scouting director and professional scout at the NHL level.

Jacob Trouba and the Winnipeg Jets remain apart in contract talks.

The two sides still have to agree to money, term and usage, according to TSN's Gary Lawless. Trouba wants to play in the top-four group and get some more time on the power play. He spent most of his 5v5 action alongside Mark Stuart in 2015-16, while averaging 22:04 of playing time per game. Trouba is 22 years of age and the Jets don't want to trade him, so some common ground will have to be found.

Brandon Tanev has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Tanev will come with a cap hit of $874,125 if he plays in the NHL. He had 15 goals and 28 points in 38 games with Providence College in 2015-16. He also participated in three Jets games last season, but didn't record a point.
Jul 22 - 5:26 PM

Jack Roslovic has agreed to terms with the Winnipeg Jets.

There was an earlier report that Roslovic would play for the University of Miami (Ohio) in 2016-17, but that won't happen now. Instead he will play at either the major junior level, the AHL, or with the Winnipeg Jets depending on how he does during rookie camp and possibly also training camp. He had 10 goals and 26 points in 36 NCAA games last season.
Jul 19 - 3:58 PM

Adam Lowry has inked a two-year, $2.25 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Lowry had four assists in four AHL games last season. With the Winnipeg Jets he recorded seven goals, 17 points, and 53 penalty minutes in 74 contests.
Jul 15 - 1:25 PM

Joel Armia has signed a two-year, $1.85 million contract.

Armia had four goals and 10 points in 43 games with Winnipeg last season. He also had three goals and eight points in 18 AHL contests.
Jul 15 - 1:24 PM

Brenden Kichton has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Winnipeg Jets.

Kichton can earn $600,000 at the NHL level. He had 11 goals and 41 points in 68 AHL contests in 2015-16.
Jul 8 - 11:08 PM

Mark Scheifele has agreed to an eight-year, $49 million contract extension with the Winnipeg Jets.

That works out to be a $6.125 million annual cap hit. He was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. Scheifele broke out last season with 29 goals and 61 points in 71 contests. He's got the potential to get even better over the next couple of seasons and really make that cap hit look like a bargain for the Jets. Obviously, Winnipeg is also taking a risk here given the length of the deal and his still somewhat small sample size, but Scheifele's a player worth taking that kind of chance on.
Jul 8 - 5:29 PM

Mathieu Perreault has signed a four-year, $16.5 million contract extension with the Winnipeg Jets.

This new contract won't kick in until 2017-18 as Perreault still has one season left on his three-year, $9 million deal. Perreault has been very consistent over the last three seasons as he's recorded between 41 and 43 points in each campaign. In 2015-16 he had nine goals and 32 assists.
Jul 7 - 2:00 PM

Jack Roslovic is planning to play for the University of Miami (Ohio) in 2016-17.

Roslovic had 10 goals and 26 points in 36 NCAA games as a freshman last season. Winnipeg selected him with the 25th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Jul 4 - 2:35 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have signed Patrik Laine to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Including bonuses, the deal will come with an annual average value of $3.575 million. Laine was the second overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft last month. There's a good chance the 18-year-old will be able to crack Winnipeg's lineup starting next season. Laine has an extremely bright future as a goal-scoring winger. He scored 17 goals and 33 points in 46 games in the Finnish league last season. Laine added seven goals and 12 points in 10 games at the World Hockey Championship and seven goals and 13 points in seven games at the World Junior Championship last winter. He should be a top-two pick in all fantasy rookie drafts.
Jul 3 - 4:14 PM

Jamie Phillips has agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract with Winnipeg.

Phillips had a 1.97 GAA and .922 save percentage in 36 games with Michigan Tech in 2015-16. The Jets originally selected him with the 190th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
Jul 2 - 12:15 PM

Julian Melchiori has inked a two-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Melchiori will come with a $625,000 annual cap hit when he's playing in the NHL. He had no points and a plus-one rating in 11 games with Winnipeg in 2015-16. In the AHL he added three goals and seven points in 62 contests.
