Note: Free agency is grinding along and the Jets only announced one free agent signing on Friday with the signing of Manitoban Ashton Sautner. They did also get a prospect under contract agreeing to terms with Elias Salomonsson (2022 2nd rounder) on a three year ELC.
Note II: The Moose made a trio of signings including Nicholas Jones, Greg Meireles and Manitoban Dean Stewart. It wasn’t all good news for Manitoba as I broke the news that captain Jimmy Oligny suffered an injury training and is expected to be out until at least Christmas.
Note III: Reminder to join us today on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show starting at 9 AM as we recap the moves made by the Jets to date in free agency, continue to look at the roster composition and more.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets off-season lacking ambition needed to right ship. Something tells me we are gonna be hearing “Running it back” quite a bit this summer if more substantial moves aren’t made.
The Athletic Winnipeg: What we’re hearing on the Canadiens, Jets and Pierre-Luc Dubois. (Paywall). This entire situation is just odd. It is shocking how overt the Habs, Dubois agent Pat Brisson are being in order to manufacture some sort of move.
TSN: MJ’s free agency grades for the Canadian teams. Who made the best moves, who made the wrong moves, who should’ve made more moves? Mike Johnson joins That’s Hockey to go across the country and hand out his grades for each Canadian teams start to free agency.
