The Jets shored up their defence with a last minute trade.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

As the trade deadline reached it’s end the Winnipeg Jets added Joe Morrow from the Montreal Canadiens for a fourth round pick.

In 38 games, Morrow has five goals and six assists for the Canadiens, while primarily being used as a power play weapon and bottom pairing defender. Heading out from Winnipeg is a 2018 fourth round pick, a small price to pay for a bit more offence on the bottom pair for the Jets.

Morrow’s contract pays him $650,000 this year, and he will be a restricted free agent at the end of this current season, with his salary being prorated he will cost next to nothing against the Jets cap.
