Jets sign Cormier, Fraser to matching one-year deals

The Winnipeg Jets have signed free agent forwards Patrice Cormier and Matt Fraser to matching one-year, two-way contracts worth $650,000, the club announced on Thursday.

Cormier spent much of the 2014-15 season with the American Hockey League’s St. John’s IceCaps scoring 12 goals and 21 points in 47 games. The 25-year-old appeared in one game with the Jets last season.

Fraser split the 2014-15 season between the Boston Bruins and Edmonton Oilers. He appeared in 24 games with the Bruins scoring three goals. The Oilers claimed Fraser off of waivers from the Bruins in December.

In 36 games in Edmonton, Fraser scored five goals and four assists.

As Jets’ beat writer Ken Wiebe notes, Fraser has been a prolific goal scorer at the AHL level scoring 90 goals and 131 points in 181 games.
