Winnipeg, MB - The Winnipeg Jets announced they have agreed to terms with restricted free agent centre Mark Scheifele on a new eight-year contract worth $49 million with an AAV of $6.125 million per season.

 Scheifele, 23, set a career-high with 61 points in 2015-16. He also tallied a career-best 29 goals to go along with 32 assists in 71 games. Scheifele ended the 2015-16 season on a 10-game point scoring streak and was tops in the NHL with 33 points in 26 games from February 18 until the end of the regular season. Following the 2016 NHL season, Scheifele helped lead Canada to a gold medal notching nine points (4G, 5A) in nine games at the IIHF World Championship in Russia. He has also been named to Team North America for the upcoming 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

 Scheifele, a Kitchener, Ont, native was the first-ever draft pick taken by the Jets after relocating from Atlanta, seventh overall at the 2011 NHL Draft. Over his NHL career his point totals have increased each season for a total of 145 points (58G, 87A) in 227 career games.
