The dog days of summer are officially upon us and hopefully things keep happening.

Winnipeg Jets News:

Brandon Tanev is a Jet for one more season after signing a new contract for $700 000. This contract has very little impact on the Jets as it can be buried in the AHL for nothing but True North Sports and Entertainment’s money. The one-way nature of the contract may have made it so Tanev would take a pay cut. (Arctic Ice Hockey)
