Contending Team Reportedly Out Of The Mark Scheifele Sweepstakes

Published August 16, 2023 at 6:53 PM

Mark Scheifele has been an absolute star for the Winnipeg Jets during his 12-year tenure with the team, but with an extension now unlikely, it appears he could be on the way out.

A Jets franchise legend


Over that 12-year period, Scheifele has played in 723, tallying an impressive 272 goals and 645 points, all while being a fantastic leader and teammate on a struggling team.

Despite another successful year in 2022-23 with 68 points scored, it appears Scheifele and the Jets are on the way to a split, with the Boston Bruins linked heavily to the 29-year old.

Bruins out?

Given their need following the Patrice Bergeron retirement, this was a move that made total sense for both parties, but now with their cap situation uncertain and few assets to play with, the Bruins are now reportedly out on Scheifele.

That comes from Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet, who believes the team want to hold onto their future assets, and with plenty of cap relief coming next summer, expect the Bruins to be more active then than what they are now.
