Winnipeg Jets Sign Brandon Tanev

Brandon Tanev inks a one-year deal –

The Winnipeg Jets announced they have agreed to terms with forward Brandon Tanev on a one-year, $1,150,000 contract.

Height:  6′   Weight:  190
Drafted:  signed as an  undrafted free agent on March 30, 2016.

Brandon Tanev is an energy guy that has good chemistry with Adam Lowry and Andrew Copp so this signing makes sense for the short-term.  Fans either love him or hate him.  Tanev is what he is.  What I like about Brandon Tanev is that he can skate and he competes every night.  At times it scares me how Paul Maurice uses him but that’s his prerogative.

Final Thought:

I’m okay with Brandon Tanev as a fourth liner and a one-year contract is a no harm, no foul type of deal.

This contract gets: ?

Chevy gets a:  B
