There was a new signing announced yesterday as Swedish speedster Axel Jonsson-Fjallby got himself a two-year contract.

Note V: A familiar face on the Moose bench will be heading to a division rival next season as Greg Meireles has signed with the Iowa Wild for next season.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Ex-Jets captain Wheeler tips cap to Winnipeg. It seemed clear that both the organization and the player kept open lines of communication about this process so as to avoid creating unnecessary conflict. Wheeler also became part of the community during his 12 years in Winnipeg.

Sportsnet: 32 Thoughts Podcast. I’ve transcribed the Jets material which focusses on the team’s mentality following last week’s Dubois trade/Wheeler buyout as well as Vlad Namestnikov being really happy in Winnipeg and the hope for Cole Perfetti.
