Winnipeg Eyeing Blackhawks Forward As Trade Deadline Approaches

The Winnipeg Jets have been one of the surprise teams of the 2022-23 season, as they have emerged as a top contender and one of the best teams in the NHL. The Jets are currently 32-19-1 with 65 points as they are second in the Central Division trailing the Dallas Stars by just one point. While the Jets have been one of the best teams, just like every other contender, an addition at the March 3rd trade deadline is a must as they gear up for a playoff run. Secondary scoring is a need for Winnipeg, and upgrading their bottom six will be their priority at the deadline.

There are multiple names Winnipeg has been connected to, with most of them being high-end targets which may not be the direction they are looking to go. One option they can look at is Chicago Blackhawks forward Max Domi, who is one of the most notable trade targets heading into the 2023 trade deadline. Domi has been garnering plenty of interest as the deadline is now less than a month away, and according to The Fourth Period, the Winnipeg Jets have now entered the sweepstakes.

Domi is a veteran forward playing in his ninth season in the NHL and is enjoying a solid year during his first season in Chicago. Through 48 games, Domi has recorded 14 goals, 21 assists, and a team-leading 35 points while being a key member of the power play unit. Adding a player of Domi’s caliber would be a perfect addition to this Jets team and provide them with the type of secondary scoring they need. Domi also provides Winnipeg with some playoff experience, as he’s appeared in 24 playoff games, including last year with the Carolina Hurricanes. Last season for the Hurricanes, he skated in 14 playoff games scoring three goals and adding three assists.

What also makes Domi an intriguing addition is the fact the 27-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason after signing a one-year deal last summer with Chicago. If Winnipeg is impressed with Domi, they could extend or let him test free agency again come July.

The Jets will have a lot of competition to successfully acquire Domi, so it will be a wait-and-see if general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff can pull off a trade.
