LAST SEASON: 37-35-10, 84 points; finished 11th in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs.

COACH: Paul Maurice, second season with the Jets, 478-469-99-73 overall.

ADDED: C Mathieu Perreault.

LOST: C Olli Jokinen, G Al Montoya.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Evander Kane: The 23-year old is entering his sixth NHL season, all with the Thrashers/Jets franchise. But the question surrounding Kane isn’t where he’ll start the season. Rather it’s where he’ll finish. Kane’s name has been linked in trade rumors, leading the left winger to tell a Vancouver radio station in July he will operate under the assumption he is “a Winnipeg Jet.”

OUTLOOK: The Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise has not qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs since the 2006-07 season. That probably won’t change in 2014-15.
