Winnipeg Jets Sign Depth Forward Jaret Anderson-Dolan

The Winnipeg Jets have signed depth forward Jaret Anderson-Dolan to a two-year contract worth $775,000 annually. The contract will be two-way in his first season and then one-way in the second season with Winnipeg.

Anderson-Dolan, 24, was drafted in the second round at 41st overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. He played five seasons with the Spokane Chiefs where he was incredibly productive in his third and fourth seasons posting 76 points (39G, 37A) and 91 points (40G, 51A) across 72 and 70 games respectively.

He got his first taste of professional hockey for the Ontario Reign in the 2017-18 season before getting his first in the NHL a year later with the Los Angeles Kings.

Anderson-Dolan has played 127 NHL games for the Los Angeles Kings and Nashville Predators posting 28 points (15G, 13A) in that time frame. His AHL career highs came in the 2021-22 season with the Ontario Reign where he posted 47 points (24G, 23A) in 54 games. He then posted career numbers in his longest NHL season, putting up 12 points (7G, 5A) in 46 games.

This signing provides a strong scorer for the Moose and a potential candidate to be recalled barring any injuries or exceptional circumstances beyond the teams’ control.

The Calgary, Alberta-born player has lots of time to develop into his original draft projection and could be a steal of a signing for the Winnipeg Jets in the future.
