  • GFL9966

    For the Winnipeg Jets not to come out and comment on this situation has the belief that they didn’t know about this since the event occured 1 month after he signed the contract. Ondrej Pavelec have some questions to answer on this matter because his is going to be one of the few players on this team to build the Jets around in the future. We can’t have these events around this team.  If the Jets know about the events.  He could of faced stiff team and/or league punishment as being conduct detrimental to the team.
