Jets sign Blomqvist to entry-level contract

The Winnipeg Jets have signed 18-year-old Swedish forward Axel Blomqvist to an entry-level contract, the team said Tuesday.

The undrafted forward attended the team's prospect camp during the summer and played for the Jets in the five-team rookie tournament in Penticton, B.C., in early September.
