Altitude Check: Winnipeg Jets news and notes for Monday, July 10, 2017

Your morning helping of NHL news and notes.

NHL: Nashville Predators at Winnipeg Jets James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports

After a long layoff due to life, Altitude Check is back on a hopefully consistent basis. With NHL news slowing down and Winnipeg Jets news non-existent right now, we will see how this goes. Throughout the summer the Jets might start taking care of business for next season by negotiating new contracts for Jacob Trouba, Nikolaj Ehlers, and possibly even Josh Morrissey. Kevin Cheveldayoff also has to negotiate a contract with Connor Hellebuyck; hopefully before his arbitration hearing.
