The Winnipeg Jets have avoided arbitration with forward Mason Appleton, as the two sides came to an agreement on a three-year contract.

The contract works out to an average annual value of $2.1 million.

Appleton spent four seasons with the Jets before the Seattle Kraken drafted him in their expansion draft.

The Jets re-acquired him at the trade deadline for a fourth round pick.

The 26-year-old scored eight goals and collected 13 assists in 68 games last season.
