It appears as though Swift Current Broncos Alum Adam Lowry will be spending at least the next half-decade of his professional hockey career in Winnipeg.
Just before 2 p.m. this afternoon, reports broke that the Jets and Lowry have agreed upon a five-year extension worth $16.25 million with an average annual salary of $3.25 million per season.
Lowry has spent all seven NHL seasons with the Jets amassing 65 goals and 78 assists in 452 games. The St. Louis, Missouri product has netted eight goals and added 12 helpers in 44 regular-season games this year.
The 28-year-old centre played four seasons in Swift Current from 2009 to 2013 notching 90 goals and 114 assists in 235 regular-season games.
He also collected the WHL's Four Broncos Memorial Trophy (WHL Player of the Year) in the 2012-13 campaign becoming the fourth Broncos player to capture the award joining Joe Sakic (x2), Jason Krywulak, and Sergei Varlamov.
