Matt Fraser is on the move again after signing a one-year contract with the NHL's Winnipeg Jets

Former Kootenay Ice forward Matt Fraser is on the move once again.

Fraser, 25, has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets.

Fraser’s new deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level and $325,000 at the American League level.

The signing of Fraser was announced Thursday.

The Jets become Fraser’s fourth NHL team since 2011.

The native of Red Deer signed with the Dallas Stars as an undrafted free agent following the 2010-11 WHL season before being dealt to the Boston Bruins on July 4, 2013.

On Dec. 29, 2014, the Edmonton Oilers claimed the 6-foot-1, 203-pound forward off waivers from the Bruins.

Fraser was set to become a restricted free agent following the 2014-15 NHL season, but after the Oilers failed to extend him a qualifying offer, he became an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

In 87 career NHL games, Fraser has tallied 11 goals and 16 points.

The 2010 WHL Humanitarian of the Year skated in 265 career WHL games, split between the Kootenay Ice and Red Deer Rebels.

He entered the league full-time in 2007-08, playing five games with the Rebels before landing with the Ice.

Over his WHL career, Fraser amassed 87 goals and 173 points. He was a member of Kootenay’s WHL championship squad in 2011.

The Rebels drafted Fraser in the ninth round (172nd overall) of the 2005 WHL Bantam Draft.
