A look at the UFAs and RFAs for the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose this fall

While it won’t be a traditional offseason for Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff he will be busy all the same.

This post is traditionally written in spring as we would be looking ahead to a busy summer of signings for Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff starting on July 1st.  Of course 2020 has seen fit to give us playoff hockey in August and a Stanley Cup Final in October so nothing is “normal”.  Free agency is scheduled to get underway, at the latest, on October 9th (or seven days after the Stanley Cup Final concludes).
