The Winnipeg Jets yesterday placed left-shot, depth defender Adam Pardy on waivers yesterday.

There were no reports or explanation given why the Jets exposed a pending-free-agent, depth-player less than 24 hours away from the NHL roster limit being lifted. However, it was speculated that the Jets were giving Pardy an opportunity to play elsewhere to give him a chance to earn a contract for next season.

Pardy did not move far on the waiver wire, as the Edmonton Oilers picked Pardy up, along with the Vancouver Canucks' Adam Cracknell.

The tank started earlier than normal for the Winnipeg Jets. A Saturday afternoon tilt usually means lacklustre hockey and the Jets played the part to perfection. In a yawner of a game, the Jets lost 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins, thus making the goal of drafting Auston Matthews inch agonizingly closer.

Jets Trade Deadline 2016: Should the Jets cheer for or against Andrew Ladd?
