We are now fast approaching the start of NHL training camps and there are still two big question marks left unanswered in Winnipeg: when will Kyle Connor and Patrik Laine sign with the Jets? Both have expired rookie deals and it seems that they are lumped in with many RFA’s around the league, waiting to see what happens with Mitch Marner in Toronto. It could be that once one domino falls, the rest will follow…stay tuned.

 

Shifting the focus to the prospects watch, the Jets will kick off their training camp with the Rookie Showcase Tournament in Belleville, Ontario from September 6-9. Puck drop for the first game is 6:00 PM ET on September 6 against the Ottawa Senators. Below is a look at which prospects got the invite to this year’s event:
