On the heels of Anthony Peluso's head scratching contract extension, the Winnipeg Jets continued to lock up restricted players this week by agreeing to terms on Thursday with quietly effective 24-year-old blue-liner Ben Chiarot.
The deal is worth $1.7 million in total, which the club disclosed, and will carry an annual average value of $850,000. That's a not insignificant raise for Chiarot, who comes in at a significantly higher price point than the $660,000 he was entitled to had the Jets opted to qualify him.

Welcome back to our contract evaluation series, looking at what we should expect the Winnipeg Jets' unrestricted and restricted free agents earn given how statistically similar players were paid.
Using WAR-on-Ice's Euclidian Distance application produced by Manny, we will produce a list of similarly aged players who who are comparable in: goal production, assist production, point production, shot volume production, relative Corsi percentage, relative scoring chance percentage, relative goal percentage, percentage of team's time on ice.
Our next look is none other than the Jets pugilist specialist, Anthony Peluso.

I wouldn't blame you if you went looking for Sebastian Aho highlights on Youtube and got really confused. The top result over there appears to show a short Swedish d-man, and, well, it's not a mistake. Sebastian Aho is a diminutive Swedish blueliner that's eligible for his second entry draft this season.
But there's another Sebastian Aho. This one is rated lower by NHL central scouting, but he's much younger with a much more impressive statistical resume to his credit. This Finnish Aho has been tearing up the Liiga's junior circuit for years before finally graduating to a full-time pro at an extremely young 17 years of age in 2015.
Join us after the jump for a look at one of Finland's most dynamic young scorers.
