Winnipeg Jets Sign Forward & Defenseman to One-Year Deals

The Winnipeg Jets have signed Mason Shaw to a one-year contract.

Darren Dreger of TSN shared that Shaw’s deal is worth $775K in the NHL and $350K in the AHL. He also reported that Haydn Fleury has joined the Jets on a similar contract, with Fleury earning $775K in the NHL and $400K in the AHL.

Shaw spent seven years with Minnesota Wild before this move. Last season, he scored seven goals and 17 points in 59 games but had to stop playing due to an ACL tear . He returned to play only this past March.

Fans might think these signings are strategic moves for depth.

New Additions: Shaw and Fleury

This past season, Shaw struggled to repeat his previous performance, managing just one goal and three points in 20 games for the Wild. While playing for their AHL team in Iowa, he was more productive, scoring 43 goals and 121 points over seven years.

On the other hand, Fleury has been around more teams. He’s played for Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks, Seattle Kraken, and Tampa Bay Lightning across his career. With 268 NHL games under his belt, he’ll likely start as Winnipeg’s seventh defenseman because of his ability to play both sides of the blue line.
