Adam Pardy is staying with the Winnipeg Jets.

The depth defenceman avoided unrestricted free agency by coming to terms on a one-year deal with an average annual value of $700,000 on Monday morning, a source confirmed.

Pardy, 30, had six assists in 60 games with the Jets last season and carved out a nice role for himself on the third pairing, especially after Paul Maurice took over as head coach.

The pride of Newfoundland has four goals and 39 points in 260 NHL games during his career.

The Jets have also decided not to issue a qualifying offer to Matt Halischuk, who had five goals and 10 points last season.

The Jets have yet to issue a qualifying offer to forward James Wright, who had two assists in 59 games last season.

The deadline to issue qualifying offers to restricted free agents is 4 p.m. CT on Monday.

If one is not received, that player becomes an unrestricted free agent.
