[There are] so many good things that I like about Winnipeg. I can do my outdoor stuff that I love to do. I have no problem being up there." Byfuglien has 14 goals and 29 points in 49 games this season.

The 30-year-old power-defenseman will travel to Minnesota for Friday night's game, but it is unknown whether he will play. Byfuglien snapped a five-game pointless drought before posting two goals on Thursday night with five shots and a plus-three rating. The Jets beat Nashville 5-4 in OT, but they will certainly miss Byfuglien if he is out of the lineup. He has 25 points in 44 games this season.

Dustin Byfuglien was reportedly offered to the New York Islanders for defenseman Travis Hamonic.

The Jets would have to give up a little more to get the Islanders to take Byfuglien because he's a 30-year-old pending unrestricted free agent this summer. Hamonic still has four seasons left on his contract after this year and he is just 25 years of age. It was believed that Byfuglien could end up on the trading block and that appears to be the case.
