This just in from Mike McIntyre of The Winnipeg Free Press, unsigned Winnipeg Jets restricted free agent Jack Roslovic will reportedly NOT report to Jets training camp and has in fact demanded a trade from the team.
Check it out:
Jack Roslovic, a 23-year-old Winnipeg Jets forward, will not be present when his team begins training camp this Sunday, agent Claude Lemieux told the Free Press on Tuesday.
That's because Roslovic, who is a restricted free agent, is still back home in Columbus waiting for word on his immediate future.
Roslovic is looking for a change of scenery and the Jets have explored trade possibilities. But if a deal can't be reached, a new contract must be signed before Roslovic can return to the Jets.
The 23 year old former 1st round pick (25th overall in 2015) put up a career high 12 goals and 29 points in 71 games in 2019-20. McIntyre reports that Roslovic is looking to be put in more offensive opportunities and would prefer to be moved to the center ice position, rather than playing a bottom six role on the wing as he has under Jets head coach Paul Maurice.
Stay tuned, Jets fans... the last thing this team needs is another distraction. Trouba... Byfuglien... Laine... now Roslovic...
