In the Jets press conference on Day 2 of the 2021 NHL Draft, Cheveldayoff stated, “I think it’s a special thing for those kinds of players that get passed over a couple of times. There’s a little bit of a chip on their shoulder so, I think there’s a lot of skill, can play either wing, six-foot-one, but I think there’s still room to grow into his body.

Article content “There is lots of exciting options, I think, that the coaches can contemplate and Dillon gives you a massive body that can do a lot of things out there, changes the complexion and look of our defence — the hardness to play against,” Cheveldayoff said. The opportunity to get Nate Schmidt — who just fits in so many different ways — and what he brings to this team from a character, compete, talent, and leadership standpoint is something I’m really excited about.

I didn’t have my feet moving as much as I have in the years past, getting up into the play and being a little more in-your-face defensively with how we played,” Schmidt said. Having watched Neal Pionk and Josh Morrissey, Schmidt said he missed moving the puck up the ice and being the “second wave” of offence. It’s something that faltered in his game on Canada’s west coast.

Grading Jets Defense Following Trades For Brenden Dillon, Nate Schmidt

Winnipeg Jets general manager, Kevin Cheveldayoff, entered the treacherous waters of the 2021 off-season with a long to-do list, and since the Seattle Kraken Expansion Draft and NHL Entry Draft are now done, Cheveldayoff could turn his attention to improving his team’s defense. Despite 2019-20 Vezina Trophy winner, Connor Hellebuyck’s skills between the pipes, the Jets’ blue line was left exposed too many times during the 2020-21 season. With an aging captain in Blake Wheeler, a core group of players in their prime, and only three more years left on Hellebuyck’s team-friendly contract, there is a renewed urgency for this club to be serious Stanley Cup contenders in this current window. Cheveldayoff wasted no time this week addressing his roster’s biggest need, as he acquired left-handed shot, Brenden Dillon, from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a pair of second-round picks. The 30-year-old tallied 19 points (2G, 17A) in 56 regular season games this

Since the sudden departure of defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, who suffered a high-ankle sprain in 2019 and hasn’t returned to the ice since then, the Winnipeg Jets have been forced to constantly retool their blue line over the last two seasons but it appears they may have finally discovered a solution to this challenging situation. After receiving ineffective defensive performances for a second straight season, general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and his staff were determined to dramatically improve this team’s defense over the off-season in an attempt to provide goaltender Connor Hellebuyck with additional support. Wasting zero time making a pair of moves to address the backend, the Jets acquired two top-four blueliners in Brenden Dillon and Nate Schmidt through the trade market before free-agent frenzy opened. With Dillon and Schmidt now on the roster, the front office has seemingly filled the massive hole on defense that was created by the loss of Byfuglien two sea
