The Winnipeg Jets on Monday reassigned five players to the club's American Hockey League team, St. John’s IceCaps.

Sent down were defensemen Ben Chiarot and Julian Melchiori, left wing Carl Klingberg and goalie Michael Hutchinson. Right wing Jerome Samson also is slated to head to St. John's, but first must clear waivers.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
