THE Winnipeg Jets announced Saturday they have signed forwards Eric O'Dell, Patrice Cormier and John Albert to one-year, two-way deals.
O'Dell scored three goals and added four assists in 30 games with the Jets in 2013-14 in a breakout season for the career minor-leaguer, who was a second-rounder of the Anaheim Ducks in 2008.

His new deal is worth $650,000.
Albert played nine games with the Jets in 2013-14 and recorded his first NHL goal in his NHL debut Dec. 2 at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers.
A sixth-round draft pick of the Atlanta Thrashers in 2008, Albert spent most of last season with the IceCaps, where he scored 28 goals and added 17 assists in 63 regular-season games.
His new contract is worth $585,000.
Cormier had three assists in nine games with the Jets in 2013-14 and has five points in 49 career NHL games with the Jets and Thrashers.
Cormier, a second-rounder of the New Jersey Devils in 2008, spent most of last season in St. John's, where he scored nine goals and added 17 assists in 61 regular-season games.
His new contract is worth $625,000.
