Former Sharks forward Kyle Wellwood has signed a one-year deal worth 700,000 with the Winnipeg Jets, according to a Winnipeg Sun report.

Wellwood spent his first season with the Sharks in 2010-11 and played in 35 games, totaling 13 points on five goals and eight assists.

The Sharks may have let Wellwood leave San Jose because they already have 49 players under contract, just one under the maximum allowed, heading into camp.
