The Winnipeg Jets have signed their last restricted free agent to a one-year, two-way contract worth $775,000. The 23-year-old Declan Chisholm was selected in the fifth round at 150th overall during the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
Chisholm officially the Manitoba Moose in the 2020-21 season, where he posted two goals and 11 assists for 13 points in 28 games. The defenseman impressed enough people to appear in two NHL games during the 2021-22 season. While Chisholm has yet to earn his first NHL goal and point, he has shown consistent development in the past two years.

During Chisholm’s 2021-22 campaign with the Manitoba Moose, he scored nine goals and 21 assists for 30 points in 53 games. The following season, Chisholm scored five goals and 38 assists for 43 points in 59 games.
The Bowmanville, Ontario native will look to earn more NHL games in the 2023-24 season. However, being behind the defensive logjam that the Winnipeg Jets currently have, Chisholm may not see a ton of games this year.
