Defenseman Tyler Myers made his Winnipeg Jets debut Thursday night playing 21:23 and registering a minus-1 rating in Winnipeg’s 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

However, following Wednesday’s blockbuster deal with the Buffalo Sabres, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has already received calls on Myers.

According to hockey insider Darren Dreger, the Jets would like to add another top nine forward to their lineup. As a result, teams have called asking whether Cheveldayoff would be willing to part with Myers for a top forward.

Dreger says a deal invlovling Myers won’t happen before the deadline as the Jets would like to see how the blueliner fits in Winnipeg before making any further moves.
