Note: It was a busy day at Winnipeg Jets Development Camp yesterday. Keep it locked here for the latest from prospect camp.
Note II: When the Jets revealed the list of RFAs they qualified on Monday Joe Morrow’s name was left off the list but according to Darren Dreger of TSN the team signed him to a one-year deal.
Winnipeg Sun: Appleton sets sights on next challenge, AHL rookie of the year wants spot on Jets. Appleton started on the 4th line with the Moose and eventually became the top line winger. It will be interesting to see his growth over the summer although I still expect he will be with the Moose to start next season.
Winnipeg Sun: Tavares decision could impact Jets. All eyes are on the Islanders centre to see how his contract will shape up before the rest of the league falls into place.
Winnipeg Free Press: Becoming Jets’ final-round draft pick ‘almost like a dream come true’ following family’s nightmarish month. (Paywall). It didn’t even occur to me that there was a connection for the player drafted by Winnipeg in the 7th round.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets keen to see prospects on ice. (Paywall). Really good opportunity to get these young guns together and familiar with each other, the organization and the city.
Jets site: Stastny signing remains priority for Jets, GM says. Stastny could be the second most prized UFA centre on the NHL free agent market.
Jets site: Appleton, Samberg building on great seasons at development camp. Following up their excellent seasons they will both be looking to add to their games this season.
TSN: Will salary cap concerns affect the Jets’ ability to re-sign Stastny? What’s the latest on Paul Stastny possibly returning to the Jets? Does Winnipeg have the space to bring the veteran back? That’s Hockey gives its thoughts.
TSN 1290 Winnipeg: Jets want Morrisey and Trouba on the blue line for years to come. Andrew Paterson and Rick Ralph discuss the top stories of the day, hear Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff’s comments from development camp and are joined by Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.
