The Winnipeg Jets (named after the gang from West Side Story, not a plane because no one in Winnipeg has seen one) have claimed Nick Shore off of waivers today at noon.
The decision is likely based on the injuries to Bryan Little and Mark Letestu, and the fact that the Jets really like making waivers claims this year.
Nick Shore is from Winnipeg, which might make you think he’s excited about heading there, but as someone who has moved out of Winnipeg, I can assure you that Nick Shore is not happy about having to return. It may or may not beat playing in the KHL again, but it’s what he signed up for by returning to the NHL, so off he goes…
The numbers on Nick Shore this year aren’t impressive…
