The Winnipeg Jets on Saturday agreed to terms with forward Riley Nash on a one-year contract for the league minimum salary of $750,000.

Nash, 32, recorded seven points (two goals, five assists) in 37 games last season with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs on April 9 and held without a point in two playoff games.

Nash has 172 points (63 goals, 109 assists) in 578 career games with the Carolina Hurricanes (2011-16), Boston Bruins (2016-18) and Blue Jackets (2018-21).

Nash was selected 21st overall in the 2007 NHL Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.
