The Winnipeg Jets and defenseman Paul Postma agreed to terms on a two-year contract, according to beat writer Ken Wiebe. Also per Wiebe, Postma will make $650,000 in 2013-14 and $775,000 in 2014-15.

Postma was drafted in the 7th round, 205th overall, by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Last year, Postma played 27 games to start the season in the AHL, recording 18 points for the St. John’s IceCaps. He then scored four goals and nine points for the Jets in 34 games, once the NHL season started.

During his major junior career with the Swift Current Broncos and Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League, Postma won the WHL Plus-Minus Award and was a WHL East First Team All-Star in 2009.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
