Jets re-sign center Bryan Little for 5 years
Little, who avoided arbitration, had seven goals and 25 assists in 48 games last season. In 404 games with the franchise, the 12th overall pick in the 2006 NHL draft has 99 goals and 128 assists.
The Jets still need to come to terms with Wheeler, who has also filed for arbitration.
