Sami Niku will be in tough to earn a roster spot with Winnipeg going into next season.
The Jets have seven veterans on the roster already with Josh Morrissey, Dylan DeMelo, Derek Forbort, Neal Pionk, Nathan Beaulieu, Tucker Poolman, and Luca Sbisa in the fold. Niku signed a two-year contract with Winnipeg on Thursday worth $700,000 next season and $750,000 the year afterward. It's a one-way deal and Niku would have to go through waivers to be sent down to the minors. That could set him up to be an extra on Winnipeg going into the season unless injuries occur.
