Winnipeg Jets Sign Adam Lowry to Long-Term Extension

The Winnipeg Jets have locked up one of their unsung heroes as forward Adam Lowry has signed a five-year contract extension worth $16.25 million. Darren Dreger of TSN was the first to report the news.

Lowry is the perfect compliment to the Jets' top-six forwards as he plays a heavy game and has been a key piece to the team's success. Lowry is the cornerstone of the third-line and is having himself a fine season.  The 28-year-old has appeared in 44 games for the Jets this season, registering 20 points. His new contract gives him roughly a $300,000 raise per season and locks him in long-term.

According to CapFriendly, the deal does not include trade protection. The Jets now turn their attention to their other pending free-agents Paul Statsny, Mathieu Perreault, Nate Thompson, and Trevor Lewis. All these players may need to wait until after the playoffs to see if general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff wants to keep them around.
