The Winnipeg Jets signed forward Andrew Copp to a two-year, $2 million contract, according to TSN’s Aaron Ward and Darren Dreger. The team confirmed the deal on Thursday.

Copp, 23, finished his second full season with Winnipeg, generating career-bests in categories including goals (nine) and points (17) in 64 contests. He also averaged 12:21 TOI per game, representing a big jump from the eight minutes he averaged over 77 regular-season games in 2015-16.

Late in 2015, Copp went from the University of Michigan to Winnipeg, who drafted him 104th overall in the 2013 NHL Draft.

This covers just about every concern for the Jets except for one: RFA goalie Connor Hellebuyck still needs a deal.
