Jets sign Copp to 1-year, $3.64M extension
Copp entered the offseason as a restricted free agent with arbitration rights. He'll be unrestricted when his new deal expires and is eligible for another extension as of Jan. 1, 2022.
The Jets now have all their players under contract for the 2021-22 season. Winnipeg is currently projected to be over the $81.5-million salary cap, according to CapFriendly, but the club can exceed the limit by $5.29 million with Bryan Little on long-term injured reserve.
Copp, 27, set career highs in goals (15), points (39), and ice time (18:15 per contest) this past campaign across 55 games. He was a fourth-round pick of the Jets in 2013.
