Winnipeg Jets working on acquiring defenseman Nate Schmidt

The Jets are working to beef up their defense for next season by adding key additions to their blueline.

So far Winnipeg has traded for Brenden Dillion from the Capitals in exchange for two second round picks.

However they are not looking to stop there.

Reports are coming in that they have been trying to also acquire another once former capitals defenseman, Nate Schmidt. Only issue is he’s currently not willing to waive his no-trade clause and wants to stay with Vancouver or so it seems.

Perhaps the Jets will entice a good enough deal with the Canucks and sell Schmidt on the move to Winnipeg to make it work out as free agency is only a day away.

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: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
