There was certainly a time when the Winnipeg Jets had the best stable of prospects in the National Hockey League and prognosticators were forecasting big things for the organization.

Imagining an all-Canadian division and how the Winnipeg Jets would fare

As we slowly turn the page on a 2020 calendar most people would like to throw in the trash, it brings us closer to another NHL season that will look like no other. Commissioner Gary Bettman has stated the league wants to start a new season on Jan. 1 and many theories have been bandied about as to how that will be possible. With...

Latest in Laine saga leaves tough questions, few answers

This has the feeling of a “here we go again” moment. While the situations might differ, it’s beginning to appear that the end result — the one that matters — could wind up being the same. The Winnipeg Jets, a franchise that has planted its flag firmly on the draft-and-develop mountain, has once again been brought to...

On Nate Schmidt, no-trade clauses and the geographical challenges Winnipeg endures

You’ll be happy to know that the Winnipeg Jets inquired about Nate Schmidt, a capable top-pairing defenceman that would have immediately made the team’s blue line contingent a formidable foe. What you won’t be pleased about, but probably suspected, is Winnipeg was one of the teams Schmidt listed as a no-fly zone under his modified no-trade clause. Whether or not Winnipeg’s interest was lukewarm or at...

Jets ink restricted free agent Nogier to new deal

The Winnipeg Jets retained another of their restricted free agents on Wednesday, as defenceman Nelson Nogier inked a new pact. The two-year, two-way deal calls for Nogier to earn an average of $725,000 in the NHL, a fraction of that – a reported $100,000 and change – if he’s sent to the minors. The 24-year-old Nogier, a fourth-round draft pick in 2014, has played just 11 NHL games in five years as a...

Nate Thompson had plenty to celebrate on Thanksgiving weekend. On Saturday, he signed a one-year, $750,000 free-agent contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Jets add much-needed size with LHD Derek Forbort

The Winnipeg Jets have beefed-up their blue line, signing 6-foot-4, 220-pound left side defenceman Derek Forbort to a one-year pact on Sunday. The deal includes an average annual value of $1 million for the former first-round draft pick.

FRIESEN: Jets hold their own with Stastny trade, nothing more

On the first day of free agency, the Winnipeg Jets made a trade. And God laughed. In some corners it’s being heralded as a swap of Biblical proportions, the move that could carry the Jets to the Promised Land. Paul Stastny is not only the best No. 2 centre the Jets could have reeled in, the prophets proclaim, but he’ll instantly transform...

JETS SNAPSHOTS: Re-signed defenceman Beaulieu believes Jets don’t need much change to be ‘right there’

While they clearly did not address a pressing need to improve on defence on the first day of NHL free agency, the Winnipeg Jets did bring perhaps their most physical blue-liner back into the fold. The Jets signed defenceman Nathan Beaulieu to a two-year contract. Beaulieu’s deal carries an average annual value of $1.25 million. He became an unrestricted free agent at 11 a.m. CT on Friday but signed with the Jets about an hour later. ...

Stastny looking forward to reuniting with Laine and Ehlers in return to Jets

The 34-year-old centre was acquired by the Jets Friday morning in a trade with the Vegas Golden Knights, bringing him back to the team he helped reach the Western Conference final in 2018.

JETS SNAPSHOTS: Cheveldayoff says Jets will continue to look for centre, D-man through trades and free agency

Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has done three media availabilities this week and has done a lot more dancing around questions than answering them. He’d have fit right in at the U.S. vice-presidential debate. Of course, that’s not unexpected, especially when he’s heading into a highly unusual free agency...
