Nogier put pen to paper on a two-year, two-way deal with Winnipeg on Wednesday. Nogier has played in just one NHL game over the last two seasons, having previously logged 10 appearances back in 2016-17. The addition of Derek Forbort, combined with re-signing Dylan DeMelo and Luca Sbisa, will likely mean Nogier will once again spend the bulk of the year in the minors.
Nogier received a qualifying offer from the Jets on Sunday. Nogier only played in the AHL during the 2019-20 season, recording nine points and 45 PIM over 58 games. The 24-year-old has some NHL experience, but he likely won't receive another offer from a different team. He'll have an uphill battle for an NHL roster spot next season.
Nogier (undisclosed) took the ice with his teammates Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports. Nogier had yet to practice with the team since the start of camp Monday and was on the ice with the early, non-lineup group. At best, the blueliner should consider himself ninth on the organizational depth chart, so fantasy players shouldn't expect to find him in the lineup any time soon.
Nogier -- who was included on the Jets' training camp roster -- didn't take part in Monday's session, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports. Nogier likely won't be playing in a game anytime soon for the club, so his absence is unlikely to be a factor for most fantasy players. With the league's decision regarding injury announcements, Winnipeg won't provide any additional specifics about the blueliner's absence, so it's unclear if this will be short term or long term.
The Jets reassigned Nogier to AHL Manitoba on Sunday. The 23-year-old was called up as an insurance policy with Sami Niku (lower body) and Josh Morrissey (upper body) both nursing injury. Nogier will shift back to the minors, where he's produced one goal and nine points across 55 AHL games this season.
