Winnipeg Jets Sign Dylan Samberg to a Multi-Year Contract

The Winnipeg Jets took care of some internal business this week as they've signed defenseman Dylan Samberg to a two-year contract. The 24-year-old will make an average annual value of $1.4 million per season.

Samberg appeared in 63 games last season and chipped in with two goals and eight points. He also appeared in five Stanley Cup Playoff games for the Jets after leap-frogging a couple of other defensemen in the process, including former first-round pick Logan Stanley.

Samberg was originally a second-round pick in 2017 and has dressed in 78 career NHL games, registering 13 total points. The 6-foot-3 blueliner is a great skater who is developing nicely with top-four potential.

The Saginaw, Michigan native spent three seasons at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and won a pair of NCAA championships. He's also won and bronze and silver medal at the World Junior Championships coming through the ranks.

The Jets now have just under $8 million in cap space to work with and have three forwards and one more defenseman to sign this summer.
