Former Edmonton Oilers center Matt Hendricks has found a new home with the Winnipeg Jets.
Hendricks is a hard working leader on and off the ice, a welcome veteran presence in the Jets' relatively young locker room. The 36-year-old spent the last three full seasons with the Edmonton Oilers. He had 4 goals, 7 points and 29 penalty minutes last season.
Hendricks led the Oilers in the faceoff circle, winning 132/232 draws (56.9%) as well as being a staple on the penalty kill. He ranks among the top-25 NHL forwards in shorthanded time-on-ice over the last five seasons.
