The team announced on Tuesday that the Winnipeg Jets have acquired guard Nate Schmidt from the Vancouver Canucks for the third round of the 2022 draft.
The 30-year-old player spent a season in Vancouver, then played for the Vegas Golden Cavaliers for three seasons, and before that he played for the Washington Capitals for four seasons.
He signed a six-year contract with Vegas in 2018 with four years left, which includes a revised no-deal clause and a $5.95 million cap. According to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, the Jets had previously been part of Schmidt’s 10 team no-deal list, which meant that the defender gave up the above clause to facilitate this move.
