The Winnipeg Jets are trying to improve their bottom six forwards and did a bit to help that out.

The team announced they’ve signed forward T.J. Galiardi to a one-year two-way deal worth $750,000. Last season with the Calgary Flames, he had four goals and 17 points in 62 games.

Through his career, Galiardi has been a steady third line-type of player capable of playing well defensively and chipping in with the occasional goal or two.

Since breaking out with the Colorado Avalanche in 2009-10 when he had career-highs in goals (15) and points (39), he’s had trouble staying healthy and in the lineup. Now he’ll join his fourth team in four seasons. He’ll be hoping prognosticators go a bit easier on the Jets than they did the Flames last season.

    I wish nothing but the best for this guy, he’s got some untapped upside and I think as long as he stays healthy and finds his game he can be a very solid NHL player

    Nothing I’d like to see more for the fans in Winnipeg than for the Jets to make the playoffs, but why is mgmt so afraid to make any serious changes? If it’s broke – fix it!
