Tampa Bay signed the 31-year-old free agent to a two-year, $3-million deal Monday, but had to wait for Miettinen to clear waivers.
Miettinen began the season in Russia's KHL with the Kazan Ak-Bars, registering two goals and six assists in 20 games. He played with Minnesota during the 2010-11 season when he had 16 goals and 35 points in 73 games.
The Jets also activated defenseman Ron Hainsey from injured reserve.
