The Winnipeg Jets re-signed defenseman Sami Niku to a two-year deal with an average annual value of $725,000, the team announced Friday.

Niku, 24, will be a restricted free agent when the deal expires.

The 6-foot-1 Finn recorded five assists while logging 16:10 of average ice time through 17 regular-season games with the Jets in 2019-20.

Winnipeg selected Niku in the seventh round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

The Jets are currently $700,000 over the salary cap with one outstanding restricted free agent to sign in forward Jack Roslovic.
