An independent arbitrator awarded Copp a two-year, $4.56 million contract with the Jets on Tuesday.
The Jets and Copp were reportedly separated on both term and salary prior to Sunday's hearing, and thus were unable to come to terms on a new deal without the assistance of an independent arbitrator. Copp, who notched 11 goals and 25 points while posting a plus-20 rating in 69 games last campaign, will continue to fill a middle-six role for Winnipeg over the next two seasons. Jul 23 5:42 pm (EST)
- Copp and the Jets are separated on both term and salary, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports, which could force the two sides to go through with their July 21 arbitration hearing.
- Copp filed for arbitration ahead of Friday's deadline.
- Copp was handed a qualifying offer by Winnipeg on Tuesday. All Andrew Copp News
