5 Comments

Just ahead of training camp, Dustin Byfuglien is “looking slimmer and fitter than he has in his time with the Jets,” according to Winnipeg Free Press reporter Gary Lawless.

This is news, since Byfuglien’s physique has not always drawn such rave reviews.

NHL.com lists the 28-year-old defenseman at 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds; however, his weight was reportedly up to 302 pounds by the end of last season.

Byfuglien has three years remaining on his contract, with a cap hit of $5.2 million.
