The Winnipeg Jets are bringing one of their hometown kids back to Manitoba. Cody Eakin has been acquired from the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for a conditional 2021 fourth-round pick. Eakin is on the final season of a four-year, $15.4 million contract and set to become an unrestricted free agent in July. The pick can become a 2021 third-round selection if the Jets make the playoffs or Eakin re-signs. Vegas will not retain any salary in the transaction.

Panthers reportedly were close to acquiring Brady Skjei before trade deadline

  Panthers reportedly were close to acquiring Brady Skjei before trade deadline Skjei would have made a huge difference in Florida, but the Panthers could not get the deal done . Expect Florida to continue scouring the trade and free-agent markets this offseason for a long-term upgrade on the blue line.Here are some more trade-deadline notes...The biggest rumor that emerged on deadline day was a possible trade of Minnesota Wild star Zach Parise to the New York Islanders. Few expected that Parise, who at 35 years old still has five years left on his contract at over $7.5M AAV, could be a potential trade candidate.

Apparently, the Jets have decided not to follow in their yearly tradition of spending a first-round pick on a rental second-line center at the deadline. After Winnipeg acquired Paul Stastny in 2018 and Kevin Hayes in 2019, Eakin comes this season to try to give the Jets a little more depth at the position for a playoff push, even if he won’t be expected to serve in the same top-six role.

The 28-year old has shown he can perform offensively, even as recently as the 2018-19 season when he scored 22 goals and 41 points for the Golden Knights. But that Eakin has been nowhere to be seen this season as his four goals and 10 points match Adam Lowry’s disappointing totals for the campaign. Interestingly, Eakin and Lowry were teammates for a while with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL and will get a chance to reunite in the Jets’ bottom six down the stretch.

Winnipeg Jets winger Kyle Connor reportedly drawing trade interest

  Winnipeg Jets winger Kyle Connor reportedly drawing trade interest The Winnipeg Jets just signed Connor to a seven-year, $50M extension back in September. However, given their disappointing season and bleak outlook on the blue line, it cannot be ruled out that the right price — Byram or otherwise — could entice the Jets to move Connor.Here are some more trade rumors...A difficult season for Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere continued not only in his last game, but in his last practice as well. Gostisbehere, who has missed 13 games this season due to injury and has struggled even when healthy, drew back into the Flyers’ lineup on Thursday night.

For the Golden Knights, getting rid of Eakin’s contract was likely reward enough, making the conditional pick icing on the cake. Las Vegas wasn’t getting any production from the former Dallas Stars forward and needed room if it is going to activate Alex Tuch before the end of the season or make another acquisition. Nicolas Roy can slide into the lineup on a regular basis for the time being while the Knights grab another piece of draft capital to use in other discussions.

The Jets have assigned Andrei Chibisov to the minor leagues to make room on the roster.
