The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with defenseman Dylan DeMelo on a four-year, $19.6 million contract extension Tuesday.

DeMelo, 31, was set to become an unrestricted free agent. The $4.9 million average annual value marks a significant jump from the $3 million salary he earned last season.

DeMelo played all 82 games and posted career highs in assists (28) and points (31) during the 2023-24 season. His plus-minus rating of plus-46 ranked second in the NHL after Florida Panthers defenseman Gustav Forsling’s plus-56.

The Ontario native also paced the Jets in blocked shots (139) and shorthanded ice time (2:35 per game).

A sixth-round pick by San Jose in 2011, DeMelo has recorded 144 points (17 goals, 127 assists), 265 penalty minutes and a plus-80 rating through 554 games with the Sharks (2015-18), Ottawa Senators (2018-20) and Jets.
