Afternoon Fringe Signings (Jul 19)

The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Adam Lowry on Thursday afternoon, signing him to a 3-year, $8.75 million deal.  Lowry had an injury-riddled 2018 season, upper-body injury after upper-body injury, but in 45 games, he still managed 8 goals and 21 points, good enough for 287th among all forwards.  That kind of scoring pace would be enough to lift him into consideration for the hockey pool draft, if you're looking for one of those sleeper-like picks.

The deal is certainly one that suggests that the Jets believe he's on the cusp of some pretty good things, signing him in for some reasonable term and giving him a good salary cap hit at the same time.
