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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jun 30 - 9:33 AM

Mathieu Perreault may not return to Anaheim as he is slated to become a restricted free agent on Tuesday.

The Ducks have Ryan Getzlaf and Rikard Rakell at center and have added Ryan Kesler and Nate Thompson in the last few days so that Perreault may be the odd man out in Anaheim. He had 18 goals and 43 points last season so he should be in demand by teams looking for a second line center.

Don't expect to see Jets' top draft pick Nikolaj Ehlers in the NHL next season.

Despite the fact he was one of the QMJHL's most dynamic and best players this past season, Ehlers needs more development time. He will likely return to the Halfix Mooseheads for the 2014-15 season. That said, grab this one if you have a reserve list. He has the potential to be something special.

Jets' coach Paul Maurice firmly believes that Ondrej Pavelec can not only be the Jets' starting goalie going forward but that he will also be an NHL star.

Strong words for the coach about a netminder many believe just doesn't have it in him to lead a team into a successful playoff run. "I have a firm belief he has the ability to be an outstanding No. 1 goaltender. I do. We're going to do everything we can to make that happen. But it's incumbent on every player to make that happen," Maurice said. Pavelec had a miserable 2013-14 season posting a 3.01 GAA and a .901 save percentage while winning a paltry 22 games. For the Jets' sake we hope Maurice is right.

The Winnipeg Jets selected Jack Glover with the 69th pick of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Glover is a rangy 6-foot-3, 190-pound defenseman who is equally strong offensively as he is defensively, with high-end speed and mobility. He’s an excellent athlete, but for all the physical tools he has yet to put them all together to dominate a game the way he could. He is an aware player, but his hockey sense and attacking mindset lacks at times. He possesses a heavy shot and can move the puck well. Glover sometimes loses his defensive assignments and is adequate at defending one-on-one rushes. There is an edge to his game, though he’s certainly not a banger. There is big upside here, but still a lot to dream on. He’ll look to realize this immense potential beginning in the fall at University of Minnesota.

The Winnipeg Jets have selected Nikolaj Ehlers with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Nikolaj Ehlers is one of the most electrifying players of this draft class. His speed is off the charts, his shot is lethal while his hands are silky smooth. The 5'10" Danish winger dominated the QMJHL in his rookie season, notching 60 goals and 132 points in 79 games for the Halifax Mooseheads, including playoffs. Elhers is dynamic and fearless, able to pull off tricks at top speed and change direction on a dime. Ehlers needs to bulk up his 176-pound frame, but has the raw skills and competitive drive to make the same plays that Patrick Kane is able to do in the NHL. Due in part to his size, he's very unlikely to play in the NHL next season.
