Tucker Poolman has re-signed with the Winnipeg Jets on a three-year contract worth $2.325 million, creating an annual cap hit of 775k.
Poolman, 25, played his first season as a pro last year, splitting time between the Jets and the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. In 24 NHL regular season games, Poolman had one goal and one assist. He was held without a point in the two playoff games he appeared in.

Poolman was originally drafted in the 5th round back in 2013 by the Winnipeg Jets. After wrapping up a three-year career in the NCAA with the University of North Dakota, Poolman played 17 games with the Moose last year when not spending time with the big club. In that time, he had one goal and nine assists.
Poolman remains waivers exempt, according to CapFriendly, and this contract will make him an unrestricted free agent upon its expiry in 2021.
Marko Dano, Nic Petan, Eric Comrie, J.C. Lipon and Nicolas Kerdiles remain restricted free-agents.
