The Winnipeg Jets announced today that the NHL club has signed Petes defenceman Declan Chisholm to a three-year, entry-level contract set to begin next season.
Chisholm, a 6’1”, 193lbs rearguard, registered a career-high 69 points (13 goals and 56 assists) in 59 games this season. He was voted by OHL Eastern Conference coaches as the third best skater and third best offensive defenceman for the 2019-20 campaign. Chisholm was a finalist for the OHL’s 2018-19 Defenceman of the Year award and was also the team’s 2019-20 nominee.
The Bowmanville native was selected by the Jets in the 5th round, 150th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft in Dallas, and attended Winnipeg’s 2018 and 2019 development and training camps.
Chisholm was the first Pete to be drafted by the Jets.
