The end of the Winnipeg Jets season has created questions regarding the future of their team. The biggest question involves the future of star forward Nikolaj Ehlers. Today a new report has confirmed his fate.

The Winnipeg Jets had a disappointing end to the NHL Playoffs with a first-round exit. After the retirement of head coach Rick Bowness, many believe bigger changes are coming. A new report from Winnipeg Jets writer Murat Ates has suggested that the first move could be a Nikolaj Ehlers trade before the NHL Draft.

It seems every season that one player ends up being the scapegoat for the season and driven out of town. A few years ago it was Patrik Laine then more recently things soured with Pierre-Luc Dubois and now the same seems to be happening with Nikolaj Ehlers.

There is some belief going around that Nikolaj Ehlers could be on his way out of Winnipeg this off-season. If that were the case, I'd have to think it's a defenseman. I guess we'll find out

With all of the rumors swirling around his name, it seems more likely than not that the Jets move on from Nikolaj Ehlers. Now we have a timeline for when the move could go down. As the NHL Draft approaches look for the reports and rumors to continue to get more intense.
