Jets re-sign enforcer Anthony Peluso

The Winnipeg Jets announced that Anthony Peluso has agreed to a two-year, $1.35 million contract extension.

The 26-year-old forward had two points and 86 penalty minutes in 49 games with Winnipeg in 2014-15. He was also credited with 100 hits.

He was originally taken by the St. Louis Blues in the sixth round of 2007 NHL Entry Draft, but he was placed on waivers in January 2013 before making his NHL debut. He was claimed by Winnipeg and has gone on to participate in 107 contests with the Jets.

Peluso was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer after completing his old two-year deal worth roughly $1.1 million.

Winnipeg still has a number of restricted free agents left, including defensemen Paul Postma, Keaton Ellerby, and Ben Chiarot.
