Conference Call with Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff

Hear from the Jets GM who spoke today after signing Dylan Samberg.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff signed 2017 2nd rounder Dylan Samberg this morning.  Of course the call also touched on a number of Jets related topics which you can hear here:

Topics:  What stands out about Dylan Samberg’s development?  What have his days been like?  Getting ready for the NHL draft.  Neutral sites/no crowd idea to finish the season.  What worries him about the pandemic (inside and outside the game)?  Any update on Dustin Byfuglien situation?  How much he has watched Dylan Samberg and the pitch they made to him last summer to turn pro.  What are the rules with the roster freeze (would Samberg be available if the season resumed)?  Is there anything missed/lost by not getting Samberg into the organization sooner?  How ready is Samberg for the pro game?  What did he hear about the second half for Ville Heinola when he went back to Europe?  Big picture question on the pool of Jets defence prospects.  What work can they do with UFAs right now?  On the transition from one season to another if they resume the 2019-20 season.  How much does he worry about the NHL going straight to the playoffs (based on points percentage Jets would be out)?  Any of the Jets/Moose players or staff showing any symptoms or been tested for COVID-19?
