Winnipeg Jets Rumors: 2 Offseason Trade Targets

Welcome to NHL Trade Rumors' Offseason Trade Targets series. During it, we will take a look at two players that each team around the league should consider targeting before the start of the 2023-24 season.

In this latest edition of the series, we will be looking at the Winnipeg Jets. 

Lawson Crouse: The Jets have been connected to Lawson Crouse, and it would be big for them to bring him. He would be a nice addition to their middle six, as he chips in offensively and plays a very heavy game. He also would become a key contributor to their power play, as he is known for his strong net-front presence ability.

Vitek Vanecek: The Jets are going to need a goaltender if they trade Connor Hellebuyck. The New Jersey Devils have been heavily linked to the star netminder, and one goalie that the Jets could ask in return for him is Vitek Vanecek (along with other assets). Vanecek just had a strong 2022-23 season with the Devils, posting a 33-11-4 record, 2.45 GAA, and a .911 SV%. He would serve as a solid starter for them if acquired.
