The Jets announced Wednesday they had re-signed forward Matt Halischuk on a one-year, two way contract worth $725,000.

The 26-year-old Halischuk played 46 games with the Jets last season collecting five goals and five assists.

The Jets now have 23 players on their NHL roster with just over $60 million in salary counting against the cap of $69 million for this season.

The only changes on the roster to date have seen centre Mathieu Perrault added with Olli Jokinen departing and backup goalie Michael Hutchinson moving in while Al Montoya is out.

The Jets finished last season with a 37-35-10 mark for 84 points which was seven points back of the last wild card qualifier for the playoffs.

Halischuk has played in 203 games for New Jersey, Nashville, and Winnipeg collecting 64 points (30G, 34A) and 47 penalty minutes.
