Winnipeg is still interested in signing Michael Frolik to a contract extension.

However, when he was asked if he was actively trying to sign Frolik, he gave a guarded response. "Yes, I did have a conversation with his agent and I told him where things were at as far as that goes," said GM Kevin Cheveldayoff. "I wasn't looking to use any leverage points or anything like that. Michael is a part of this team and a part of where this has gotten to and Drew Stafford is a part of this organization and going to be a part of where things get to... and Jiri Tlusty and Lee Stempniak. All these acquisitions, potentially UFAs, that's all going to be factored into the question moving forward." Winnipeg didn't try to trade Frolik at the deadline on Monday, which isn't surprising. The team is in the playoff hunt and he's played well this season. Frolik would like to stay, but he's leaving talks to his agent and Cheveldayoff so he can focus on hockey.

Blake Wheeler produced a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over Los Angeles during his return to the lineup on Sunday.

He missed two games with a lower-body ailment. Wheeler skated on the third line with Adam Lowry and Chris Thorburn in the match. He has 17 goals and 46 points in 62 matches this campaign.
Mar 2 - 7:53 AM

Lee Stempniak is slated to arrive in Winnipeg on Monday.

Coach Paul Maurice hasn't decided what kind of role Stempniak will play yet, but he said at this time of the year, you can never have enough healthy bodies. He's likely to get time as a bottom-six forward after being acquired from the Rangers on Sunday.
Mar 2 - 7:40 AM

Michael Hutchinson stopped 18 of 20 shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over Los Angeles.

Hutchinson is now 5-0-3 in his last eight starts and he has now been in goal for Winnipeg's last four games. The 24-year-old should start the majority of Winnipeg's games down the stretch and he is worth owning in fantasy leagues. His overall record improves to 19-7-5 on the season.
Mar 1 - 6:48 PM

Andrew Ladd scored two goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over Los Angeles.

Ladd had a very impressive stat line in this game. He had the two goals, a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes, seven shots and two hits in 18:55 of ice time. Both of Ladd's goals were scored in the second period. The 29-year-old has 22 goals and 52 points in 64 games this season. Drew Stafford, Tyler Myers and Blake Wheeler also scored for the Jets.
Mar 1 - 6:42 PM

The Winnipeg Jets acquired Lee Stempniak from the New York Rangers for Carl Klingberg.

The Rangers have been extremely busy today. First, they acquired Keith Yandle and Chris Summers from Arizona and now they have shipped Stempniak out of town. The 32-year-old has nine goals and 18 points in 53 games this season.
Mar 1 - 6:34 PM

Michael Hutchinson will get the start in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

The 24-year-old has an 18-7-5 record with a 2.29 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage this season. It appears as though he will be the Jets' number one goalie down the stretch.
Mar 1 - 4:02 PM

Eric O'Dell, T.J. Galiardi and Paul Posta are scratched in Sunday's game against Los Angeles.

O'Dell, 24, has played in just one game this season. He was a second round pick of the Anaheim Ducks back in 2008.
Mar 1 - 4:01 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have activated Blake Wheeler from injured reserve.

Wheeler has been out since February 24th with a lower body injury. He has 16 goals and 44 points in 61 games this season.
Mar 1 - 12:44 PM

Lee Stempniak scored twice in a 4-3 victory over Arizona on Thursday.

Stempniak snapped a four-game point drought. He has nine goals and 18 points in 52 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 27 - 11:25 AM

Michael Hutchinson appears as though he will start the majority of Winnipeg's last 19 games.

He has played in five of the last six contests and he's picked up points in the standings with a 3-0-2 record during that span. That's what is most important for the Jets right now, as they find themselves in a tight battle for a Wild Card playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Feb 27 - 8:34 AM

Blake Wheeler (lower body) could be back for Sunday's game against Los Angeles.

Wheeler has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury. He has 16 goals and 44 points in 61 games this campaign.
Feb 27 - 8:16 AM

Michael Hutchinson gave the Jets a chance with 28 saves on 29 shots on Thursday night versus St. Louis, but allowed two goals in the shootout to take the 2-1 loss.

Hutch seems to have calmed down after allowed four goals in three consecutive games last week. He's allowed just three in his past two games, a win and this shootout loss. On the year, the surprising rookie is 18-7-5 with a .920 save percentage and 2.29 goals against average.
Feb 27 - 12:07 AM

Mark Scheifele's 10th goal of the season was enough to extend his points streak to three, but not enough to earn his team the victory as the Jets lost 2-1 in a shootout to St. Louis on Thursday.

Scheifele now has 35 points in 63 games this season, to go with a +4 rating and 35 penalty minutes. The goal helped the 21-year-old surpass his career high of 34 points set last season.
Feb 26 - 11:55 PM

Michael Hutchinson will get the start against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Through 28 starts and 30 games this season, Hutchinson is 18-7-4 with a 2.35 GAA and a .918 save percentage. He also boasts 15 Quality Starts against just four Really Bad Starts this season. This will be Hutchinson's first career start against St. Louis.
