Jets place C.J. Suess on waivers

On the eve of the regular-season opener, the Winnipeg Jets have placed forward @C.J. Suess on waivers, as per the league’s transactions page.

Suess, 27, had been sidelined with an undisclosed injury through most of Winnipeg’s training camp and wasn’t expected to earn a spot on the club’s roster.

If the 5’11” forward passes through waivers after 24 hours, he’ll be expected to join the Manitoba Moose, where he’s spent each of the last four seasons. Once he arrives, the veteran forward will be slated to serve as a key contributor for a third consecutive campaign.

Appearing in 31 games with the Moose in 2020-21, Suess posted eight goals and 14 points while also racking up 50 shots on goal during the shortened schedule.

Winnipeg is set to open the 2021-22 season on the road against the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday at 9 pm CT.
