Tonight during the Sportsnet 32 Thoughts segment Dave Amber asked Elliotte Friedman for an update on Mark Scheifele and this is what the insider had to say about the Jets centre:
“In the aftermath of Winnipeg’s disappointing season Dave, Mark Scheifele’s comments about his future with the Jets got a lot of attention. From what I understand when Scheifele met with the organization he did not ask for a trade. Now we’ll see where everything goes in Winnipeg this offseason. The Jets have a lot of choices to make. But from what I understand Scheifele did not ask for a trade.”
Still doesn’t mean that this is resolved but given how folks thought Kevin Cheveldayoff saying Scheifele hadn’t asked for a trade was convenient given they hadn’t yet had their exit meeting yet it appears to put that to rest (for now). Of course the uncertainty remains with the centre and his future in Winnipeg.
