Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has announced the team has signed goaltending prospect Thomas Milic to an entry-level contract

The Winnipeg Jets are just days removed from the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is wasting absolutely no time in the offseason. He announced today that the team has signed a goaltending prospect to an NHL entry-level contract.

21-year-old Thomas Milic was the Jets 5th round pick (151st overall) in 2023. He spent last season with the Manitoba Moose, including two postseason games.

"The Winnipeg Jets announced today they have agreed to terms with 2023 fifth-round pick (151st overall) Thomas Milic on a three-year, entry-level contract with an AAV of $841,700 that begins in 2024-25.

Milic, 21, played 33 games for the AHL's Manitoba Moose in 2023-24 and posted a 19-9-2 record with one shutout, a 2.72 goals-against average, and .900 save percentage. The Coquitlam, B.C. native won 14 of his final 19 games for Manitoba and he was the AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Mar.17/24. Milic also started both Calder Cup Playoff games for the Moose."

Milic won the 2023 Western Hockey League (WHL) Championship with the Seattle Thunderbirds. He also won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2023 World Junior Championship, where he was a perfect 5-0-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .923 SV%. After that, he joined Team Canada at the Spengler Cup, where he played one game.
