Jets include Pavelec in latest round of cuts

Jets include Pavelec in latest round of cuts

The Score - NHL Hockey

The Winnipeg Jets' crease got a little less crowded Monday, as the team announced netminder Ondrej Pavelec is included in its latest round of cuts.

Pavelec requires waivers, meaning if he goes unclaimed over the next 24 hours, he'll report to the AHL's Manitoba Moose.

With the decision to send Pavelec down, the Jets will run with a younger, cheaper tandem of Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson, with the starter yet to be determined.

The three shared time fairly equally in the Winnipeg goal last season:

Player Starts W L OT GAA Sv% SO
Hellebuyck 26 13 11 1 2.34 0.918 2
Pavelec 31 13 13 4 2.78 0.904 1
Hutchinson 25 9 15 3 2.84 0.907 0
