The Winnipeg Jets have re-signed minor league defenceman Nelson Nogier to a one-year, two-way contract.
Nogier, a 23-year-old, right-shot blue-liner who has played 11 NHL games but has not recorded a point, has played most of the last three seasons with the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.
He had one goal, eight assists and 48 penalty minutes last season in 74 games.
He played one game with the Jets in 2018-19, in Brooklyn in December.
Nogier would make $700,000 if he plays in the NHL next season and $80,000 in the AHL.
He was a fourth-round draft pick of the Jets in 2014.
Nogier could play on the top defence pairing for the Moose next season, along with Logan Stanley.
Two of the team’s top defencemen from last year — Tucker Poolman and Sami Niku — are expected to be part of the Jets’ defence corps this year.
