Hellebuyck check mark a start in a busy summer ahead for Jets’ Cheveldayoff

If Kevin Cheveldayoff has said it once, he’s said it a million times. “We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us,” the Jets general manager said in a conference call on Thursday, not long after signing goalie Connor Hellebuyck to a six-year, $37 million contract. A lot of work is an understatement here. The […]

Stastny departure will sting: Jets lose out on top target in free agency

Who’s the Jets backup? Goalie becomes a priority as free agency opens

With the departure of Steve Mason, the Winnipeg Jets cleared some valuable cap space, but also created a position of need behind starting goalie Connor Hellebuyck.

D is for development, where Jets lay foundation for building culture

A smile immediately came across the face of Jimmy Roy when he was asked how much things had changed since the days he was attending NHL camps. This wasn’t about taking a stroll down memory lane, but rather a not-so-subtle reminder of the evolution of the process itself. It’s important to remember Roy is 42 […]

JETS SNAPS: Berdin discusses goal, celebration, Kovacevic set for new direction, Stanley set for next challenge

The interview with Mikhail Berdin was nearly over before it ever really began.
