REPORT: Jets Willing to Trade Scheifele on One Condition Only

Published September 10, 2023 at 0:08

Mark Scheifele seems primed for a trade away from the Winnipeg Jets, and reports indicate they're willing to trade him if they get a young talented centre back.

Scheifele Exit Imminent?

The Winnipeg Jets are in for quite the rebuild sooner rather than later, and there very much remain question marks over the heads of several of their best players — not the least of which being Mark Scheifele.

The club's longtime captain and first-ever draft pick after moving from Atlanta seems primed for a move away from Winnipeg, and according to Elliotte Friedman, the Jets have already made clear their intentions for a possible Scheifele trade.

Quid Pro Quo

I have heard that they've kind of indicated if they go from Dubois and Scheifele to no Dubois and Scheifele, they'd better make sure if they're making that trade they get a replacement.

It's not an unfair ask by any stretch — the Jets are going to want a talented young forward to help drive their rebuild forward if that's their next move here. After all, Scheifele's scored 645 points in 723 games for the club.

A number of NHL clubs could use Scheifele's skill and experience down the middle (the Boston Bruins, anyone?), so it's fair for Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff to ask for a prime return.
