Winnipeg Jets RFA Kyle Connor talks contract status ahead of teeing off in The Players Cup

The RFA winger had a career high 34 goals and 66 points last season but remains without a contract.

Jets RFA Kyle Connor spoke to the media today ahead of teeing off in The Players Cup at Southwood Golf & Country Club.  Connor was asked by Sara Orlesky of TSN about his contract status.

Q:  Are you optimistic that you will have a contract signed before the start of training camp?

A:  “Yeah that’s definitely the plan.  You know the player never wants to miss time in training camp.  You know its tough always coming in not getting that preparation and time with teammates in practice.  That’s definitely a goal for sure.”

Q:  Would you come back to Winnipeg before a deal was signed or would you stay in Michigan?  Have you thought that far ahead?

A: “No I haven’t so once that happens I’m sure I’ll have a decision.”
