Laine makes some interesting comments on his career and future

august 19, 2019
Winnipeg restricted free agent Patrik Laine has made some comments on his time with the Jets that are likely to raise some eyebrows. Laine was interviewed while taking part in a charity golf event over the weekend. When asked about his NHL career so far, Laine had this to say:

Of course, I'd always like to play with the best and I haven't got that chance yet . I hope I can get here sometime during my career."

Whether Laine was serious or meant that as a joke may have gotten lost in translation. Either way, these are interesting comments considering the 21-year-old sniper recently stated there has been no contact with the Jets over the summer regarding a new contract and all he knows right now is that he'll be playing somewhere in the NHL in the 2019-2020 season. Laine reiterated those comments during the interview with the Finnish media outlet, saying negotiations with the Winnipeg Jets have not even started yet.

"It may be true that there is no contract when the camp starts," Laine told the media before the charity match began.

If there is no contract once training camp begins, the chances that Laine attends are slim-to-none.
