The Winnipeg Jets and goalie Connor Hellebuyck have agreed to terms on a six-year, $37 million contract, the team announced Thursday.

Hellebuyck, 25, had filed for arbitration last week, but it generally was expected that he and the team would reach an agreement on a long-term deal because he is considered a big part of the Jets' future. The contract — with an average annual value of $6.167 million — cements that status.

Hellebuyck made $2 million last season on a one-year deal and had a record contract year: He was 44-11-9 record with six shutouts, a 2.36 GAA and .924 save percentage in 67 appearances, and, in the process, the Michigan native surpassed Tom Barrasso for the most victories in a single season by an American-born goalie.

He helped the Jets set a franchise record for victories (52) and points (114) and finished second in voting for the Vezina Trophy behind the Predators' Pekka Rinne.

Is this the beginning of the end? As the first player to go to arbitration this summer, Jacob Trouba is also the first player to be awarded his arbitration contract.

Trouba will be a restricted free agent again next summer and the Jets will have one more shot to sign him to a long-term contract before he hits unrestricted free agency in two years.Trouba has been awarded a 1 year, $5.5M contract. WPG has 48 hrs to accept it (which they almost certainly will) or walk away, rendering him UFA.
