Goalie David Aebischer and forwards Troy Bodie, David Koci and Janne Pesonen have signed tryout contracts with the Winnipeg Jets and will attempt to make the team at training camp.

He was 12-24 in 36 games last season, with a 3.10 goals-against average and .885 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
