WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets signed defenceman Tobias Enstrom to a US$28.75-million, five-year contract extension Friday.

The 27-year-old Enstrom, who could have become an unrestricted free agent next summer, appeared in 62 games last season with the Jets, recording 33 points (six goals, 27 assists).

The native of Nordingra, Sweden, is the Atlanta-Winnipeg franchise's leader among defencemen in games played (380), points (204) and assists (172).

Enstrom was originally drafted by the Thrashers in the eighth round of the 2003 draft.
