Winnipeg Jets sniper Patrik Laine is being patient in regards to inking a new, long-term deal with the team, entering the 2018-2019 NHL season with a cloud of uncertainty over his long term future with the Jets organization, as he will venture into the season with a year remaining on his entry-level deal.
“It’s not something we need to hurry because I still have a contract,” Laine said, according to NHL.com’s Tom Gulitti “But obviously that’s something I want to do at some point and they want to do. But there’s no rush.
“I really don’t care,” Laine said. “There’s no rush, really. I can do it next summer or this summer. I don’t mind.”
It may seem that Laine is too lax about a deal, but he would prefer a long-term deal with Winnipeg.
“It’s always easier if it’s long term so you don’t have to think about doing a new contract for a while, and I’m happy where I’m at,” Laine said. “I want to stay there for sure. That’s something I want to do and hopefully, they’re thinking the same way.”

Stars, Tyler Seguin Agree to Contract Extension
Seguin’s new deal carries an average annual value of $9.85 million and kicks in for the 2019-2020 season, he currently has one more year on his current contract at $5.75 million, and his new deal will make him the highest player on the team.
“I’m thrilled to have this signed going into the season,” Seguin said, according to the Stars’ website. “Dallas has become home to me and I love this organization. In my time over the last five years with Tom Gaglardi and Jim Nill, it is clear how bad they want to win and have a model franchise. To be a part of that leadership group for the next nine seasons is an honor, and I can’t wait to get this season started with my teammates.”
