It has been quiet on the Jets news front as of late but on Sunday the team signed their 2017 1st rounder Kristian Vesalainen to a three-year entry-level contract worth an average annual value of $1.492 million.
Now the big question for this Finnish sniper is where will he play? Vesalainen obviously wants to play on the Jets and has stated his desire to play in North America this season but he could end up playing for the Moose in the AHL or he could return to Europe this coming season. Should make for an interesting camp for this Jets prospect.
As always stay tuned for the latest Winnipeg Jets news by keeping it locked to our web site illegalcurve.com and on social media including Twitter | Facebook | Instagram. You can also follow me on twitter as well (@icdave).
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
