The Jets GM held a media availability between games 3 and 4 in Vegas.

Today, he spoke about the nomination as well as a number of other Jets related topics during his media availability in Vegas.


GM Kevin Cheveldayoff scrum topics: Can he put into words why he thinks he was nominated as a finalist for GM of the Year? His willingness to take a step back after making playoffs to build team towards Stanley Cup contender. Of all his accomplishments was the drafting of Mark Scheifele one of the top ones? How would he describe the steps Connor Hellebuyck has taken this year? Has he ever had to sell Mark Chipman on his vision or have they always been on the same page? What else has he learned about Paul Maurice?
