On the Winnipeg Jets …
Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff had been trying to acquire a goaltender over the weekend. He thought he had a deal put together but it fell apart.
Free agency opens next Saturday.
“We’re going to be active obviously,” Cheveldayoff said at the conclusion of Saturday’s draft.
“We’re going to a take a look at whatever is available to us and if there’s a good opportunity there that can help us, we’ll jump at it. We can start talking to free agents at midnight tonight. We’ve got a list of names lined up to reach out to their representatives and see if we’re a fit for them as far as they want to consider us.”
