Lee Stempniak wanted to stay with the Winnipeg Jets, but instead he is still available as an unrestricted free agent.
"I was hoping to go back, but from what my agent told me, they were looking to give some spots to young guys," said Stempniak. "They have some very good prospects there that they were looking to give some ice time to. I don't think we ever fully closed the door on it, but at this point, if I had to guess, it doesn't look too promising." He's currently in Toronto to take part in the BioSteel Camp, while waiting for his next NHL contract. Stempniak had 15 goals and 28 points in 71 games last season with the Rangers and Jets.

Stempniak was acquired on Monday’s trade deadline by the Jets and will dress Wednesday night. He was skating in practice on the wing alongside Adam Lowry and Blake Wheeler. He’ll have a similar role to one he played with the Rangers being a bottom-six forward and his fantasy upside will, therefore, be limited.
