• Postma Signs Two-Year Contract With Jets

    News: Paul Postma (lower body) signed a two-year (one-way), $1.775 million contract with the Jets on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
    Analysis: The one-way nature of the deal suggests that the Jets are comfortable with making Paul Postma a permanent fixture in their defensive corps. However, it isn't clear how big of a role Postma will have with the Jets in 2015-16, as the team has a ton of depth at defense. However, if the Jets decide to permanently move Dustin Byfuglien to wing, Postma could slot in as the team's sixth defender. Either way, it's unlikely that Postma will be much of a factor in a fantasy setting this season. He suffered a lower-body injury in March, but he should be fully recovered by the time the Jets' training camp kicks off in September.
  • Jets Qualify Postma

    News: Paul Postma has been given a qualifying offer by the Jets, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
    Analysis: Despite huge offensive success in the AHL -- Paul Postma has 68 points in his last 87 games in the minors -- the Albertan blueliner has never been able to win himself more than bottom-pairing minutes with the Jets so far. As a result, he's never scored more than nine points in an NHL season. The Jets' depth on the blue line makes it likely that Postma doesn't enjoy a large role in 2015-16 either. However, he'll surely be recovered from the lower-body injury he suffered in March by the time training camp rolls around.
  • Jets' Postma Sidelined

    News: Paul Postma (unspecified injury) will miss a number of weeks, according to Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun.
    Analysis: With just six points and 16 PIM in 42 games to date, Paul Postma is not a major fantasy factor, but his absence nonetheless represents a hit to the Jets' blue line depth.
  • Jets' Postma Tallies On Power Play

    News: Paul Postma scored a power-play goal, went plus-1 and added two PIM in Thursday's shootout loss to the Avalanche.
    Analysis: A nicely well-rounded game for the offensively gifted 25-year-old, who's rolled up 78 points over his last 97 games at the AHL level, but has been limited in his NHL scoring largely thanks to a lack of ice time. With Jacob Trouba and Dustin Byfuglien ahead of him at right defense, he's going to continue to find his minutes limited in the short term, but Paul Postma's been seeing consistent power-play time of late, which should pique the interest of owners in deeper formats.
  • Jets' Postma Sets Up Two Goals In Win

    News: Paul Postma picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's preseason win over Calgary.
    Analysis: Paul Postma struck on a first-period power play, blasting a rocket from the point that was redirected by Blake Wheeler past Flames goalie Jonas Hiller. Even though it was only his first game of the preseason, Postma was very impressive, recording a plus-2 rating in 20:30 of ice time. The 25-year-old blueliner is expected to slot in on the Jets' third defensive pairing in 2014-15. He has never surpassed nine points in a season, but that's likely due to the fact he has never played more than 34 games. Postma's play on the power play Saturday makes it very possible that we could see him on one of the team's man-advantage units this season.
  • Jets' Postma Banged Up

    News: Paul Postma is dealing with an undisclosed injury, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
    Analysis: He was held out of Monday's exhibition against the Oilers and is considered day-to-day. Paul Postma is expected to be a regular on the Jets' defense, likely as a third-pairing skater.
  • Jets' Postma Gets First Goal

    News: Paul Postma scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 5-3 triumph over the Flames.
    Analysis: Nothing like waiting until the final game for your first goal of the season, huh? In Paul Postma's defense, he missed nearly three and a half months with a blood clot in his leg, but he's never shown much aptitude as a scorer as it is.
  • Jets' Postma Picks Up Two Helpers Wednesday

    News: Paul Postma registered two assists in Wednesday's win over the Avalanche.
    Analysis: Filling in for the injured Zach Bogosian on Wednesday, Paul Postma certainly didn't look out of place despite not having played in a game since Feb. 8. Unfortunately, his stay in the lineup isn't expected to last very long, as coach Paul Maurice said after the game that he expects Bogosian to be ready to play Saturday against the Hurricanes.
  • Jets Recall, Activate Postma

    News: The Jets have recalled Paul Postma (leg) from AHL St. John's on Friday and activated him from injured reserve.
    Analysis: Paul Postma was assigned to St. John's on a conditioning assignment in late January, and he is ready to return to the NHL after playing in four AHL games. Postma, who appeared in eight games with the Jets earlier this season, will add to the team's blue line depth.
  • Jets Send Postma On Conditioning Assignment

    News: Paul Postma (blood clot in leg) was assigned Wednesday to AHL St. John's on a conditioning assignment.
    Analysis: The 24-year-old has appeared in just eight games for the Jets this season before a blood clot in late October sidelined him for the next three months. He'll be given some time to get back up to speed in the minors, where he can stay for up to two weeks before the Jets would have to decide whether or not to activate him from IR.
