After Kane trade, Jets GM open to making more moves

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff made the first big splash leading up to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline when he traded forward Evander Kane to the Buffalo Sabres for defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a draft pick.

Appearing on NHL Live on Thursday, Cheveldayoff said he'd potentially be open to more moves before the March 2 deadline.

"We still think that if there's a chance to grab a forward we would certainly look at that, but we'll see," Cheveldayoff said. "It's one of those things where you don't know what opportunities present themselves. The trade deadline is getting closer. Everything always starts heating up at that point in time, so we'll keep our options open."

The Jets entered their game Thursday at the Nashville Predators 28-18-10 (66 points) and holding the first wild-card spot into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference, but they are 2-4-2 since the All-Star break.

The Winnipeg/Atlanta Thrashers franchise has not reached the playoffs since 2007, when it was swept in four games by the New York Rangers.
