The Winnipeg Jets have signed defenceman Keaton Ellerby to a one-year, two-way contract worth US$700,000.

The 25-year-old from Strathmore, Alta., played in 51 games with the Jets last season recording six points (two goals, four assists) and two penalty minutes.

The Jets claimed Ellerby off of waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Nov. 2.
