BREAKING: Former Jets Draft Pick Has His Contract Terminated

Published February 8, 2024 at 2:18 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have made some great draft picks over the years, and others not so good, but in this case, it's hard to tell the category that Leon Gawanke falls under.

Despite his promising production at the AHL level for both Winnipeg and San Jose, Leon Gawanke has now been placed on waivers for the purpose of contract termination.

In 38 games for the San Jose Barracuda this season, Gawanke has 8 goals and 27 points, but for whatever reason, the 24-year old is now officially done in San Jose.

For the Manitoba Moose over two full seasons, Gawanke played in 133 games with 30 goals and 81 points as a defneseman, but now, he finds himself searching for a home once more, and could be a low-risk, high-reward pickup for any team in the league.
