The Winnipeg Jets have agreed to terms with goaltender Connor Hellebuyck on a six-year, $37 million deal, the team announced Thursday.

Hellebuyck, who now avoids a salary arbitration hearing, tied for the NHL lead for most wins with a 44-11-9 record last season. 

The 44 wins -- 30 of which came at home -- are the most in NHL history by an American-born goaltender.
