Matt Hendricks wants to be a "big presence" in the Winnipeg Jets locker room.

Hendricks, who signed a one-year deal with the Jets last week, considers himself to be a vocal leader. "I’m a guy who likes to talk a lot in the room, pick teammates up and play a physical brand," Hendricks said. "I’m an energy guy, win faceoffs, block shots on the penalty kill. I want to be a big presence in the room. When we talk about consistency, it isn’t just a game thing. You have to be a pro every day you come to the rink, whether you’re watching video tape of the last game or putting on skates to go out and practice. Everybody has to be pushing each other for jobs and ice time. If you’re not doing that, you’re standing still. You’re not becoming a better team." The veteran will help bring energy and physicality to the lineup, but he won't have an ounce of fantasy value.

Matt Hendricks has signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Hendricks spent the last four years with the Edmonton Oilers. He scored four goals and three assists in 42 games last season. The 36-year-old will likely play a fourth-line role with his new team. He doesn't bring much to the table when it comes to offense, but he carries a strong physical presence and solid defensive ability.
Aug 26 - 7:12 PM

Matt Hendricks will likely not be with Edmonton next season.

The 35-year-old was a valued member of the Oilers the previous three seasons as his tough play and leadership on the ice as well as his presence in the dressing room, aided the young Oilers. But he only played 42 games in the regular season this year as well as not playing at all in the post-season as Edmonton went younger and faster and there was not a spot for Hendricks. He could find work once again in the NHL as a part-timer but with only four goals and seven points this season, his fantasy value is non-existent.
May 21 - 7:11 AM

Matt Hendricks will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 against Anaheim on Wednesday.

Hendricks still hasn't suited up this postseason and that won't change tonight. He finished the regular season with four goals or three assists in 42 games. Eric Gryba, Jujhar Khaira, Iiro Pakarinen and Griffin Reinhart will also watch from the press box tonight.
