Jets fans have waited long enough for their team to make its moves.
The Jets are ready to roll.
The Winnipeg Jets are poised to trade defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Chris Thorburn and a seventh-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings for forward Connor Hellebuyck, a seventh round draft pick and a conditional second-round pick, league sources told ESPN.
The trade comes two days after the Kings traded the franchise-record seventh-year player to the Winnipeg Jets in a three-team trade that sent goalie Anthony Stolarz to Winnipeg.
The deal also included the team’s 2018 second-rounder.
The Kings also received the team option on 2019 second-overall pick Jarret Stoll.
Myers, 26, has 11 goals and 26 points in 68 games this season for the Jets.
Thorburn, 23, has three goals and six points in 11 games this year for the Kings.
The Jets have not traded a defenseman since they traded defenseman Anthony DeAngelo in July 2018.
The team also has not traded defenseman Connor Hellbuyck since they acquired him from the Los Angles Kings on Feb. 22, 2018.
In a two-year span, the Jets have acquired five first-round picks from the Kings, four second- round picks from Los Angeles, three third-rounders from Nashville, three fourth-round selections from St. Louis and one sixth-round selection from Dallas.
The Kings acquired forward Zach Bogosian from the St. Lous Kings on Jan. 15, 2018, along with a second- and third-rounder from Dallas, and second-year forward Anthony Duclair from the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb, 21, 2018 in exchange for goaltender Michael Hutchinson.
