The Winnipeg Jets have acquired forward Cody Eakin from the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for a conditional 2021 fourth-round pick, the teams announced on Friday.

The draft pick will become a third-rounder if Eakin re-signs with the Jets before July 5 or if they make the playoffs.

Eakin is in the final year of his contract, which carries an average annual value of $3.85 million. The Winnipeg native has appeared in 41 games with the Golden Knights this season, recording four goals and six assists.

The 28-year-old produced a career year last campaign with Vegas, setting personal highs in goals (22) and points (41) over 78 games.
