The Winnipeg Jets have added some more forward depth to their team, adding Sam Gagner from the Detroit Red Wings.

The contract is a short-term, 1-year, $750k deal which appears to be an absolute bargain.

At 33-years-old, Gagner still has plenty left in the tank to be a solid bottom-six forward for the Winnipeg Jets.

Gagner brings plenty of consistency and leadership to the table for the Jets, who look to return to the playoffs this upcoming year following a disappointing 2021-22 season.

Last season with Detroit, he had 13 goals and 31 points in 81 games.
