Mason Appleton is going back home. 

The Winnipeg Jets have re-acquired Mason Appleton from the Seattle Kraken for a 2023 fourth-round pick, as first reported by the Winnipeg Free Press' Jason Bell.

Appleton spent the first three years of his NHL career with the Jets, posting 20 goals and 43 points in a bottom-six role. He had a career-high 12 goals and 25 points in 56 games last year to finish eighth in team scoring.

The pending RFA gives Winnipeg some flexibility with the expected trade of Andrew Copp before the deadline. It's unlikely that Appleton will cost much during the summer, and the fact that they brought him back less than a year into his tenure in Seattle makes it seem like the Jets never wanted him to leave in the first place.
