Lucius joins the Jets; Broz enters the transfer portal

On Wednesday, Chaz Lucius signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Winnipeg Jets, and Tristan Broz entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Lucius,18, was selected by the Jets in the first round of the 2021 NHL draught and will earn an AAV of $1.35 million starting in 2022-23.

In2021-22, the6-1, 185-pounder from Grant, Minn., had nine goals and 10 assists in 24 games.

A lower-body injury kept him out of the final four regular-season games and the NCAA Frozen Four.

Chaz is one of the best offensive players I've ever coached. "His ability to create offence at any time on the ice is exceptional," Gophers coach Bob Motzko said.

We are excited to follow his long and impressive pro career with the Winnipeg Jets. We wish him luck in his future hockey career."

Broz is the latest Gopher to enter the portal for fall and winter sports athletes. In 36 games, the Bloomington native had six goals and five assists
