The Winnipeg Jets kicked off their summer with the blockbuster trade of Pierre-Luc Dubois, but now with the teams future up in the air, the remainder of their off-season will be absolutely critical.

Two key names

On top of the PLD trade, the team let go of team veteran Blake Wheeler, and with the potential for a full-on rebuild incoming, the team are now potentially exploring deals for both Mark Scheifele and Connor Hellebuyck.


Now, with both on expiring contracts, many expect both to be moved, but according to a recent report, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is expected to be very patient, with both players and team looking to potentially part ways.

A crucial training camp



However, both are veteran names, and will know exactly how to handle themselves, but with their expiring deals and potential trades incoming, training camp should be interesting in Winnipeg.

It's also a big part of the reason the Jets' training camp figures to be so fascinating.

What will Scheifele and Hellebuyck say publicly about their respective situations?

Both could come in and demand trades and refuse to take the ice, or they could attack camp like any other year and see their value rise for their long-time team, but either way, the next few months will be critical to the future of the Jets, and it will be one to keep an eye on for everyone around the league.
