Kevin Cheveldayoff has taken another step into shoring up the Winnipeg Jets NHL forward depth. Lee Stempniak was traded for AHL winger Carl Klingberg.
The 34 year-old is an expiring UFA and adds to the Jets right wing depth, but also has experience as a centre in case of emergencies.

The game was closer than the score may indicate, but the Jets took it to one of the top teams for 5-on-5 situations.
Drew Stafford opened the scoring with a tic-tac-toe play from his linemates Mark Scheifele and Jiri Tlusty. Jeff Carter scored to tie it up in the second with a slick wrister off the rush, only to have Tyler Myers and Andrew Ladd take bury the Kings with two quick goals.
Ladd picked up another late in the second and both teams traded off goals in the third.
Let's break it down.
