Jets’ Patrik Laine In No Rush to Sign Contract Extension

Published

on

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.”
