The summer slumber has ended for the Winnipeg Jets, with a flurry of recent activity, starting with the Blake Wheeler interview with TSN yesterday, and today with news of the signing of Josh Morrissey to a long term contract extension.

This is excellent news for the Jets who have managed to extend their best defenseman at a reasonable cap hit of $6.25 million on average over eight seasons.

Well done Kevin Cheveldayoff!
