The Winnipeg Jets have spent the offseason trying to move sniper Patrik Laine. 

Unfortunately for general manager Kevin Chevaldayoff, he hasn't been able to pull any deals off despite Laine's agents saying a change of scenery would be best for everybody involved. 

With Laine not going anywhere and the team having zero cap space left, they've decided to shop restricted free agent Jack Roslovic. 

The Jets can't get a deal done with him and there's no cap room for him at the moment anyways. 

Instead they've given up on negotiations and have put the 23 year old on the trade block. 

In return the Jets are looking to land a top four, left-side defenseman according to Luke Fox of Sportsnet. 

Roslovic was the Jets first round pick back in 2015 and has started to put it together in the NHL having registered 12 goals and 17 assists in 71 games last year.

He's got 67 points in 180 games so far during his young NHL career.
