Winnipeg Jets re-sign David Gustafsson for the next 2 seasons

And then there were none.

The Winnipeg Jets have removed the final name from their list of un-signed restricted free agents by agreeing to terms with centre David Gustafsson on a two-year deal with an average annual value of US$775,000.

The hockey club has confirmed the 2022-23 portion of the contract will be a two-way deal, while the second and final year will see the six-foot-two, 196-pound Swede be paid exclusively in NHL dollars.

The 22-year-old native of Tingsryd, Sweden had an injury-plagued 2021-22 campaign as he was hurt in the first period of each of the only two NHL games he played on Dec. 17 versus Washington and again on Jan. 2 in Vegas.

Going into his fourth season of pro hockey in North America, Gustafsson has one goal in 28 career NHL games while totalling 24-32-56 in 82 AHL games with the Moose.
