Explosive NHL Trade Rumor: Jets and Hurricanes Teetering on the Edge of Monumental Trade Deal

The Winnipeg Jets’ offseason is anticipated to be quite active. Several of the team’s major talents are said to be moving after a really poor season. Mark Scheifele, one of the Jets’ offensive focal points, is one such talent, and the Carolina Hurricanes might be one of the clubs to pounce.

PuckEmpire of Instagram reports that if Scheifele were to enter the trade market, the Hurricanes might be interested in acquiring him, citing Sportsnet as a source.


The Canes would benefit from the move since Scheifele provides them a capable second-line center to play behind Sebastian Aho and would add to an already impressive roster of offensive prowess. The Hurricanes need to make a huge move this offseason to climb over that hump after being swept in the Eastern Conference Finals once more.

The Winnipeg Sun’s Scott Billeck recently speculated a potential Scheifele-Canes deal in which Martin Necas, Brett Pesce, or Seth Jarvis, a native of Winnipeg, would be acquired in exchange. If the Jets are entering a rebuilding phase, it might make more sense to deal Scheifele for young assets; in either case, Winnipeg fans can expect a wild offseason.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
