The Winnipeg Jets have made yet another trade ahead of March 8th’s trade deadline. Kevin Cheveldayoff, general manager of the Winnipeg Jets, acquired Tyler Toffoli for a 2025 second-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick from the New Jersey Devils. The Devils are retaining half of Toffoli’s salary. This is the Jets’ second move ahead of the trade deadline, the Jets brought in centre Sean Monahan in early February and that is looking like a stellar addition.

The 31-year-old winger brings a wealth of experience, including multiple Stanley Cup Final runs. Toffoli was drafted 47th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft and made his NHL debut in the 2012-13 season. He scored a career high in goals (34), assists (39), and points (73) in the 2022-23 season with the Calgary Flames. In Toffoli’s entire NHL career, he’s scored 253 goals and 257 assists for 510 points in 794 games.

Toffoli was traded to the New Jersey Devils in the 2023 offseason for Yegor Sharangovich and a 2023 third-round draft pick. Since joining the Devils, Toffoli has racked up an impressive 26 goals and 18 assists for 44 points in 61 games.

The Scarborough, Ontario-native joins an already impressive forward group in Winnipeg. With the Winnipeg Jets adding a versatile winger, it is expected that Toffoli will fill the gap on the second line right wing position that has had a rotating door all season. The Winnipeg Jets play the Seattle Kraken in Seattle at 9:00 pm CST, it is not expected that Toffoli will be playing with the team until tomorrow night against Vancouver.
