College Hockey:
After leaving North Dakota, Gregoire inks with Jets

North Dakota forward Jason Gregoire has signed a contract with the National Hockey League’s Winnipeg Jets.

A Winnipeg native, Gregoire elected to forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility in May to pursue his professional career.

Gregoire finished his collegiate career with 109 points (57 goals, 52 assists) in 120 career games and his 15 career game-winning goals tie him for fourth all-time at UND with Brandon Bochenski.

Originally a third-round draft pick of the New York Islanders in 2007, Gregoire became an unrestricted free agent this summer after utilizing a clause in the NHL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement that allows college players to become free agents four years after they were drafted if they are not signed by that team.
