The Winnipeg Jets inked Logan Stanley to a two-year contract carrying an average annual value of $900,000.

Stanley was a restricted free agent.

The 23-year-old remains a key member of Winnipeg's defensive corps, even after the Jets acquired Brenden Dillon and Nate Schmidt in recent trades.

Stanley collected only four points while averaging 13:13 of ice time over 37 games as a rookie, but the 6-foot-7 rearguard's underlying numbers were more favorable. Winnipeg controlled 51.19% of the scoring chances with Stanley on the ice at five-on-five in 2021, according to Natural Stat Trick.

The Ontario-born blue-liner made his debut with the club after spending two campaigns with its AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. The Jets drafted Stanley 18th overall in 2016.

Defenseman Neal Pionk and forward Andrew Copp are Winnipeg's lone remaining NHL RFAs. Both players filed for salary arbitration Sunday.
