Recently, amid all the trade rumours, an NHL insider gave an important update on Mark Sheifele's future with the Jets.

NHL Insider Says Scheifele Trade Rumours Off the Table This Season

In the recent Insider Trading Report, Darren Dreger cleared the air regarding the situation in Winnipeg and their intent to trade Mark Scheifele.
"Some things that need to be clarified: Scheifele has never asked for a trade, nor has he said that he doesn't want to extend in Winnipeg. But they're going to park it for now and just get the season going."

It was previously rumoured that Scheifele wanted out of Winnipeg, which was fueling the trade rumours ahead of this season, as his contract is about to expire after this year. However, it seems that Winnipeg is fine with the way things are as of now and will see how things play out this season.

Contract Extension Could Happen But Not a Priority as Camp Starts

Dreger noted that Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is open to extending Scheifele in Winnipeg, however, the discussions aren't a priority right now. Cheveldayoff said this about the status of contract talks.
«We'll have whatever discussions we need to have, or can have, or will have, but the focus is winning.» He added, «We'll take the contract side of things and we'll put it off to the side here.»

This is an important clarification for Jets fans heading into the season. Its clear that the Jets are still working on keeping Sheifele in Winnipeg, and keeping him unsigned as the season starts gives them a bit more flexibility to see how things play out at the beginning of the year. If they are in a place to make a solid run, then having Scheifele as an owned rental won't be the worst situation.
