The Jets management team were involved in six of the 20 trades that were completed on Monday, including four deals in the final minutes leading up the deadline.
“The last hour, it was a real flurry of things,” Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said. “It got pretty hectic right at the end with all the deals that we did, cause some of them didn’t happen, obviously, until the very last minutes.
The Jets acquired forward Kevin Hayes from the New York Rangers. Hayes, 26, has 14 goals and 28 assists in 51 games this season. He’s a big centreman at 6’5″, but it’s his two-way game that really attracted the Jets general manager.
The team also re-acquired forward Matt Hendricks who left the club as a free agent last summer after playing one season in Winnipeg.
Beaulieu, 26, has three goals and four assists in 30 games this season. He played two seasons with the Sabres after playing his first five NHL seasons for the Montreal Canadiens.
Kiselevich is a 29-year-old rookie. He has eight assists in 32 games in his first NHL season after playing in Russia in the KHL.
The final swap saw the Jets get centreman Alex Broadhurst from the Columbus Blue Jackets for future considerations. The 25-year-old Broadhurst has just two games of NHL experience and will continue to play for the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters for the rest of the season.
Unfortunately, the last game was not successful for our team. On Saturday, February 16th Ottawa Senators got a win 4-3 over the Winnipeg Jets. Both teams worked hard and showed great skills, but the Senators overpowered the Jets.
