Patrik Laine has been named a finalist for the Calder Trophy, which goes annually to the NHL's top rookie.

Laine finished the 2016-17 season second among NHL rookies with 34 goals and 64 points in 73 games. His goal total also ranked him seventh overall in league. Toronto's Auston Matthews and Columbus' Zach Werenski are the other finalists for the Calder Trophy. Laine was neck and neck with Matthews for most of the season, but the Leafs center gained some separation down the stretch to make him the favorite for the award. Still, it was an incredible introduction to NHL action for the Jets winger and it won't be long before he is challenging for 50 goals.

It sounds like the Winnipeg Jets won't re-sign Ondrej Pavelec.

That's not surprising given that Pavelec posted a 3.55 GAA and .888 save percentage in just eight games this season. A combination of health problems and time in the minors contributed to Pavelec's lack of playing time with Winnipeg.

Patrik Laine has decided not to participate in the 2017 World Championships.

Laine recently admitted to feeling tired between playing 73 games with the Jets and participating in the World Cup. With that in mind it's not surprising that he's decided to take a breather rather than take part in the World Championship.

Connor Hellebucyk will play for Team USA in the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championships.

Hellebuyck had an inconsistent NHL season in which he fininshed with a 26-19-4 record, a 2.89 GAA and .907 SP. Given that Hellebucyk is only 24 years-old, he still has a birght future ahead of him.

The Jets have re-assigned Kyle Connnor and Nelson Nogier to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.

With the Jets' season over there is no point having them on the roster.
Apr 9 - 12:45 PM

Connor Hellebuyck kicked out 33 of 34 shots in a 2-1 win against Nashville Saturday night.

Hellebuyck faced a staggering 21 shots in the second frame, but turned aside 20 of them. He's wrapped up the season with a three-game winning streak that's improved his record to 26-19-4.

Blake Wheeler scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Nashville on Saturday.

Wheeler found the back of the net with just 45 seconds left in the third period and did so while Winnipeg was shorthanded. He'll conclude the 2016-17 campaign with 26 goals and 74 points in 82 games. Kyle Connor also scored a goal for Winnipeg.

Apr 8 - 3:55 PM

Connor Hellebuyck will be in net against Nashville on Saturday.

This will be another chance for the young netminder to make a good impression on the coaching staff, who will likely have to decide between an expensive goalie import or riding Hellebuyck this off-season. Be that as it may, he comes in with a 25-19-4 record along with a 2.93 GAA and .906 save percentage.
Apr 8 - 12:51 PM

Mark Scheifele will suit up for Team Canada at the upcoming World Hockey Championship.

This is a no-brainer for Team Canada. Scheifele's schedule opened up because the Jets won't be in the 2017 playoffs. He finished the season with 32 goals and 49 assists in 78 games this season. He'll be drafted early in most season-long fantasy leagues next season.
Apr 8 - 10:40 AM

Patrik Laine admitted that he's feeling tired at this point of the season.

"Yeah, it's been a long season," Laine said. "There was the World Cup and all the exhibition games and almost a full season and concussions and that kind of stuff... the pace is just so much higher and, of course, we're playing almost every second day. So it's tough, and all the travelling and switching time zones – that's something I haven't (been) used to. Right now I'm pretty tired." Between his Finnish League playoffs, World Hockey Championship and World Junior Championship, Laine played roughly 100 games last season. Add the physical toll of a full NHL season, and you can understand why the 18-year-old is out of gas. Laine also said he's not sure if he's going to suit up for Finland at the upcoming World Championships. He has 36 goals and 64 points in 72 games this season.

Jets head coach Paul Maurice isn't impressed with his team's current six-game winning streak.

The Jets have defeated Winnipeg, New Jersey, Anaheim, Ottawa, St. Louis and Columbus, but that doesn't change the fact that they'll miss the playoffs. "I don't put any more stock into our team game at this time of year than almost exhibition," Maurice said. "I'm not looking at this and saying, 'Hey, we've won six in a row, we're right there -- we're starting the season next year 6-0.'"
Apr 8 - 10:33 AM

Kyle Connor draws back into the lineup on Saturday against Nashville.

It'll be Winnipeg's season finale. The 20-year-old has a fine first taste of professional hockey this season as he's scored 23 goals and 42 points in 49 games with AHL Manitoba, as well as one goal and four points with the Jets.
Apr 7 - 8:38 PM

Jack Roslovic will report to AHL Manitoba.
