A look at the Winnipeg Jets 2021-22 opening day roster

Check out the 22-man roster for Winnipeg.

The Jets had until 4 PM CT on Monday to submit their roster to start the 2021-22 season.  Of course what you see now is not likely what you will see for game 1 on Wednesday in Anaheim.

Murat over at The Athletic Winnipeg wrote this article which explains very well the salary cap ramifications for the Jets roster. A salary-cap expert weighs in on LTIR, Cole Perfetti and more. (Paywall).
