The Winnipeg Jets announced they’ve agreed to terms with team captain Andrew Ladd on a new contract. Terms were not disclosed.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: TSN’s Darren Dreger reports it’s a five year deal….Dreger also reports it’s a $22 million deal, with Ladd getting $4 million next season, and $4.5 million per season for each one after that. Pretty much where I anticipated his new salary would end up, almost doubling his old salary of $2.35 million last season. The cap hit will be $4.4 million per. If he continues to post up numbers as good or better than his career bests of last season (29 goals, 59 points) it’ll be money well spent by the Jets.
