Patrice Cormier has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Winnipeg.

If Cormier spends the entire 2014-15 campaign with Winnipeg, then he'll earn $625,000. He had three assists and seven penalty minutes in nine games with the Jets last season.

John Albert has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with Winnipeg.

Albert can earn $585,000 at the NHL level in 2014-15. He had 28 goals and 45 points in 63 AHL games last season. He also played in nine contests with the Jets and found the back of the net once.

Cormier notched three assists and Albert scored one goal.

Winnipeg Jets fans looking for some clarity on Evander Kane’s apparent desire for a change of scenery aren't getting it from the club's general manager.

Kevin Cheveldayoff, speaking at the end of the Jets development camp, continued to evade questions about whether or not Kane has asked for a trade. "I’m open to look, to see if there’s ways to make improvements on this team," Cheveldayoff said. "Without singling out any individual, everyone starts to wonder what’s going on." Asked again directly if Kane has asked to be moved, Cheveldayoff wouldn’t confirm or deny it. "I have lots of conversations with lots of players all the time... lots of things are said or not said, and those stay in-house," he said. Kane this summer has fueled the speculation he’d rather play elsewhere. The other day, he was on a Vancouver radio station saying he's still a Jet "for now."

Michael Frolik's arbitration hearing has been scheduled for July 31.

Frolik and the Jets can of course still avoid the hearing by agreeing to terms before then. The Jets are the ones that filed for arbitration, but they are reportedly interested in locking him up to a long-term deal.

Nikolaj Ehlers will be in attendance for Winnipeg's development camp on Monday.

He will be the Jets' only first-round pick at the camp. Josh Morrissey is eligible to participate, but he's being granted a break after a long 2012-13 season and another extended campaign this past campaign. Winnipeg took Ehlers with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Jul 4 - 7:19 AM

Will O'Neill has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

O'Neill had 36 points and 80 penalty minutes in 68 games with AHL St. John's in 2013-14. He will probably start the 2014-15 campaign in the minors as well.
Jul 2 - 6:16 PM

Michael Hutchinson and the Winnipeg Jets have agreed to a two-year contract that could pay him up to $1.15 million.

The reason why the exact amount Hutchinson will earn is unknown is because the contract is two-ways for the 2014-15 campaign. It will turn into a one-year deal for 2015-16 though. Even though the Jets will have more flexibility to demote him next season, Hutchinson is likely to start the season as the team's backup netminder.
Jul 2 - 4:49 PM

The Jets signed Mathieu Perreault on the first day of free agency.

He's expected to replace Olli Jokinen, who is still available as an unrestricted free agent. Interestingly, Perreault and Jokinen both recorded 18 goals and 43 points this past season. However, Perreault did it in 69 games and he's much younger. "I can bring a lot of speed," said Perreault after signing a three-year, $9 million deal. "Winnipeg has always been a team about speed. It's a part of my game that I like to use. I'm a smart player, I can produce, I can play a little bit of power play." He could be a good fit in Winnipeg and there's a chance he'll play with Evander Kane.
Jul 2 - 9:02 AM

The Winnipeg Jets have signed Mathieu Perreault to a three-year, $9 million contract.

He was not given a qualifying offer by the Ducks and became an unrestricted free agent Monday. With the Jets Perreault will likely play a bottom six role and will have little to no fantasy value.
Jul 1 - 1:27 PM

Forward Chris Thorburn has agreed to re-sign with the Winnipeg Jets for three years at an average annual value of $1.2 million.

Thorburn is far from a central cog in the Jets game plan, but he's a useful player nonetheless and is signed on reasonable terms. He has no fantasy value.
Jun 30 - 10:06 PM

Keaton Ellerby won't get a qualifying offer from Winnipeg.

In 51 games with the Jets, Ellerby generated six points, 76 hits and a plus-4 rating. He also averaged just 13:54 of ice time per contest.
Jun 30 - 5:18 PM

Mathieu Perreault was not given a qualifying offer, so he can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

However, the Ducks feel they presented him with a substantial contract offer. Perreault notched 18 goals and 43 points in 69 games with Anaheim last season. He could be a good Plan B option for teams looking for a productive center on the open market.
Jun 30 - 3:49 PM

Adam Pardy has signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Winnipeg Jets.

He skated in 60 games in 2013-14, where he registered four assists and 77 hits. Pardy averaged 14:25 of ice time per contest with the Jets. He was eligible for unrestricted free agency.
