Player News
  • Byfuglien and the Jets have reached an agreement to terminate the remainder of the defenseman's contract. Byfuglien and Winnipeg were mired in a grievance due to the player's refusal to report to training camp this fall, and subsequent ankle surgery without team approval. The Minnesota native was suspended by the team and hasn't appeared in an NHL game since April 20, 2019. While Byfuglien could look to sign with another club this offseason, he has reportedly been considering retirement as well.

  • Byfuglien (ankle) will not return for the 2019-20 campaign, Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest reports. Byfuglien has been suspended by the Jets all season after failing to report to training camp. There was some speculation the towering blueliner would be moved at the deadline, but the fact that he won't play should close the door on that speculation. With this news, Winnipeg could be in the market for another defenseman despite having already added Dylan DeMelo.

  • The Jets are doing their due diligence on the trade front before reaching a mutual contract termination with Byfuglien (suspension), Frank Seravalli of TSN reports. Byfuglien remains suspended by the Jets for not reporting to begin the year, and it's believed he hasn't skated since September after undergoing ankle surgery. The 34-year-old defenseman could be an appealing deadline addition for a contender, as he brings playoff experience, including the Stanley Cup run with the Blackhawks in 2010, at minimal risk. If he is moved and decides to report, his prorated cap hit would be just $1.84 million, but if he doesn't report, the receiving team would simply suspend him again and absorb no cap hit. However, interested teams likely want assurances that he would, indeed, report before giving up picks or prospects. If the Jets don't find a willing trade partner, expect the team to follow through with contract termination.

  • The Jets and Byfuglien (suspension) are working toward a mutual contract termination, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports. Byfuglien is under suspension without pay for not reporting to training camp, and the 34-year-old blueliner was considering retirement after undergoing ankle surgery in October. If the two parties come to an agreement, it would free up $7.6 million in the Jets' salary cap to bolster their blue line at the trade deadline, and Byfuglien would be free to sign with another team at any time.

  • Byfuglien (suspension) could test out his ankle, which had surgery in October, on the ice soon, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. Byfuglien is still suspended by the team, but this is the next step before a possible return. While nothing's set in stone, it seems Byfuglien could return at some point this season, and he'd be a welcomed addition to the Jets' underwhelming blue line.
