NHL Rumors: Florida Panthers, Winnipeg Jets, and the Vancouver Canucks

George Richards of Florida Hockey Now: Contract extension talks between the Florida Panthers and Aleksander Barkov have been going well and it’s believed that he’s agreed to a new deal or that one is close.

There is no rush and Barkov is still back in Finland. He’ll be flying back to Florida soon to start getting ready for next season and a deal will likely be announced then.

The Panthers would prefer to make an announcement when he’s in town and not back in Finland through a Zoom.

Little room for the Jets but they could look for a cheap forward

Murat Ates of The Athletic: The Winnipeg Jets went into the offseason needing to improve their blue line, and they did so by adding Brenden Dillon and Nate Schmidt.
