Tuesday, 07.02.2013 / 6:12 PM NHL.com

A busy offseason for Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff continued Tuesday with the announcement that 13 Jets players have been issued a qualifying offer by the club.

The long list featured a number of key names, including forwards Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little, who finished second and fourth, respectively, in team scoring in 2012-13.

The restricted free agents issued qualifying offers by the Jets included forwards Alexander Burmistrov, Patrice Cormier, Tomas Kubalik, Eric Tangradi, Eric O'Dell and Anthony Peluso; defensemen Zach Bogosian, Arturs Kulda, Zach Redmond and Paul Postma; and goaltender Edward Pasquale.

Wheeler is the team's leading scorer since the club came to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season; he led the Jets with 47 assists and 64 points in its first season. Little finished second on the team with 25 assists in 2012-13, behind captain Andrew Ladd (28).

Bogosian was second on the team in ice time last season (23:07) behind defenseman Dustin Byfuglien (24:24). The third pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, Bogosian has been a fixture on the team's blue line since entering the League in 2008-09 when the team was the Atlanta Thrashers.
