This time, he'll be around longer than 19 games. This time, the Jets didn't have to give up a first-round pick. This time, they already know the addition is going to work. Those are three reasons why the Jets acquiring Paul Stastny from the Vegas Golden Knights was a shrewd move. Jets' Search for Second-Line Centre Finally Over Paul Stastny — the only man to ever truly thrive between the Jets' two most exciting and high-octane players — is the second-line centre the team has desperately needed before Stastny's stint and since. In February 2018, the Jets acquired Stastny from from the St. Louis Blues, and slotted him between Nikolaj Ehlers and Patrik Laine. The chemistry between the three was immediately apparent as the then 32-year-old provided the youngsters a grounded veteran presence and excellent playmaking skills, recording four goals and nine assists for 13 points. Back then, Ehlers and Laine both...

The Winnipeg Jets have re-signed defenseman Nathan Beaulieu to a two-year contract worth $1.25 million. Jets Take Another Step Toward Bolstering Blue Line Beaulieu, 27, has spent the past season-and-a-bit with the Jets, suiting up for 56 games, recording one goal and 12 assists for 13 points, dishing out 89 hits, and blocking 56 shots since being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres in February, 2019. A left-handed defenseman who stands 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 200 pounds, Beaulieu is a sturdy and rugged blue-liner who brings some heaviness and grit to the Jets' back end when he's healthy. Beaulieu had a rotten 2019-20 (he suffered a number of injuries that limited him to 38 games and his dog was also run over and killed) but he will be afforded a fresh start in 2020-21. Nathan Beaulieu will be looking for a fresh start after an injury-filled 2019-20. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Chris O'Meara) The Jets' d-corp...

Everybody loves a good reunion story, and late Thursday evening, rumors began to swirl that the Winnipeg Jets would pull one off. On Friday morning, Darren Dreger confirmed that the Jets had indeed acquired center Paul Stastny from the Vegas Golden Knights, pending a trade call. In return, the Jets receive a 4th round pick in 2022 and depth defenseman Carl Dahlstrom. The move makes sense for both teams. The Jets reunite with a center who got away as a free agent just over two years ago after general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff acquired Stastny from the St. Louis Blues at the 2018 trade deadline. But for the Golden Knights, the value is not so much in the draft pick they receive, but in the $6.5 million in salary cap space they clear by trading the 34-year-old veteran. Stastny's Two Seasons in Vegas After signing a three-year, $19.5 million contract with the Golden Knights in 2018, Stastny continued to be...

Jets Prospects

The Winnipeg Jets weren’t the busiest team on Day 2 of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, but did add three more prospects to their pipeline, all with very different skill-sets. The day after selecting Saginaw Spirit standout centre Cole Perfetti at 10th overall, general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff was back in his war room to select three more players Wednesday: Daniel Torgersson at 40th, Anton Johanneson at 133rd, and Tyrel Bauer at 164th. Cole Perfetti of the Saginaw Spirit (Credit: Saginaw Spirit / OHL) We already have a detailed piece on Perfetti — an elite, intelligent, and well-spoken young man who the Jets are hoping will develop into a bona-fide second-line centre.
