The Winnipeg Jets' General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has some big decisions up ahead. The Jets currently sit tied for 2nd last in the Western Conference and last in the Central Division. They have two huge pending free agents with Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien, while they also have a major part of their future looking for raises with Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba.

Yesterday it was reported that the Jets re-assigned Adam Lowry to the Manitoba Moose. This left the Jets with eleven forwards on their roster and a game coming up on the following Friday. The Jets did not call up any of their forwards with the Moose having a game on the Wednesday and Thursday.
With not wanting the call-up to play three games in three days, the Jets called up Matt Halischuk and Joel Armia, as reported by the Winnipeg Jets website.
