The team announced Tuesday that Ladd has agreed to a new contract, which TSN reports is a five-year deal worth $22 million. He was a restricted free agent and the Jets avoided going to salary arbitration with him by agreeing to terms.

Ladd, 25, is already a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the 2006 Hurricanes and the 2010 Blackhawks. After being acquired by the Thrashers, he was given the "C" on Nov. 18, 2010, and finished the season with a career highs in goals (29) and points (51) in 81 games.

Ladd, a first-round selection by Carolina in the 2004 Entry Draft, has 92 goals and 208 points in 402 NHL games. He also has 8 goals and 15 points in 53 playoff games.

Ladd also won a gold medal at the 2005 World Junior Championships for Team Canada.

Good on him, I think he's earned it. We was a key cog in two Cup winning teams. The move from Carolina to Chicago was a move that benefited both clubs (and got him another Ring). It's a shame he got jettisoned from Chicago the way he did, but he played his guts out for Atlanta and now they are rewarding him. Nice to see.
