Jets sign forward prospect Skyler McKenzie to three-year deal

The Winnipeg Jets announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms with forward Skyler McKenzie on a three-year, entry-level contract with an average annual salary of $741,700.

In 72 games with the Winterhawks last season, McKenzie scored a team high 47 goals and added 40 assists. In 282 games over the course of five seasons in Portland, McKenzie registered 212 points (101G, 111A). McKenzie scored the game-winning goal for the Moose in Game 3 of their opening-round playoff series with the Grand Rapids Griffins on April 25.
