Patrik Nemeth Could Help The Winnipeg Jets

04/05/2021 at 10:30am EDT

from Ken Wieble of Sportsnet,

So while the potential for a bigger-name addition remains at the top of the wish list for Cheveldayoff, let’s take a closer look at several under-the-radar candidates who could end up on the Jets’ radar during the coming week:

D Patrik Nemeth, Detroit Red Wings

2020-21 stats: 39 GP, 2 G, 6 A, 8 P, 14 PIM, 18:32 TOI
Age: 29
Contract status: $3 million AAV, pending UFA
The skinny: A sturdy defender at six-foot-three and 228 pounds, the Jets would be familiar with Nemeth from his time in the Central Division with the Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars. Some of his underlying numbers need improvement, but he could provide a valuable insurance policy.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
