Jets tender qualifying offers to six restricted free agents

The Winnipeg Jets have tendered qualifying offers to six of their seven restricted free agents, the team announced Sunday.

That group includes forwards Mason Appleton, Jansen Harkins, Jack Roslovic and C.J. Suess, as well as defencemen Sami Niku and Nelson Nogier. Forward Michael Spacek was not tendered a qualifying offer and will become an unrestricted free agent.

The qualifying offers give the Jets the right of first refusal to match any offer sheets from competing teams and the team will officially retain negotiating rights with these players.

NHL teams have until 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 7 to submit qualifying offers to restricted free agents, and these qualifying offers can be signed by RFAs once free agency opens at noon ET on Oct. 9. Qualifying offers expire on Oct. 18.
